An Old Farm
In reality, this is nothing more than some semi-abandoned farm buildings that lie next to a golf course (which clearly was formed from sold-off farmland). Martin and I stumbled across them while looking for a castle in entirely the wrong place. But in the right light, it looked remarkably lovely and pastoral.

What a fine looking town! This image is a bit small, but you can probably see the medieval town walls and their towers, which still contain the best part of Conwy town. Somehow, I managed to avoid getting any pictures of the castle itself.
Up on Halkyn Mountain, medieval lead mining tailings have so poisoned the ground that the landscape looks more like the Scottish Highlands than the hills of North Wales. Pretty though!

Last shot of this Welsh holiday, as the light was failing. There were originally a bunch of power lines in this shot, but I edited them out :)
