Skywatch Friday: Llandudno


Last Friday we went to Llandudno. It was generally fine and although there was a cool breeze it remained dry. I took in excess of 100 photographs, including some on the way there and the way back.

This is the one I've chosen to show you today. It is taken from the bandstand on the promenade and shows the curve of Ormes Bay and the Great Orme in the background.

  2. Once upon a time there was this great and fantastic group of people who blogged and photographed … with a click, click here, a snap, snap there, all of them had a week to look upon the sky … day and night, by dusk or dawn, sunrise or sunset … and always there where great and fantastic photos to be seen when SKY WATCH was opened …

    I am one of those proud sky watchers and I really enjoy each and every one of the photos you show us. I really think you are a first class sky watcher!

  6. The rocky hill in the background is terrific. It looks very hard and very very old. I do like the bird you have captured on wing. I managed one of those myself this week.

  21. My Nana Jones was born here way back in 1896! It is one of the places on my list to visit when my friend and I travel in Wales next summer - back surgery being successful, that is! We plan on staying there a few days. I'm so happy to see it's such a beautiful place - I hear it's a famous resort area now.

  22. Wow, you probably won't believe but a few years ago we stayed for a few days in one of the hotels there. I don't remember the exact place but it is in your picture.
    Very nice place.
