In the summer of 2009, Mrs H and I went on an ill-fated fortnight’s holiday in beautiful North Wales, basing ourselves just outside of Barmouth. Although some of the photos I took that fortnight have featured in my desktop wallpaper series, this is the first time that I’ve pulled together all the shots taken on holiday by theme.

Most people visit Harlech for the castle, the beach, or its golf course. As far as I can tell, few head up into the mountains behind it to stroll along the empty roads and footpaths and to enjoy both the fantastic views and the many standing stones that can be found up there.

We went back to Llangollen, having pre-booked tickets on a canal boat to take us over Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, and we were not disappointed. Fantastic way to mellow out, and the views whilst travelling over the narrow aqueduct were just as enjoyable as when we’d walked over it earlier in our holiday. Highly recommended.

Conwy Castle is one of the impressive English castles built on the north coast of Wales. With its distinctive three bridges, and the way that Conwy town literally bursts out of the castle at every seam, it’s a beautiful place to come and walk around. Just remember to bring a wide-angled lens!
