Spent a day musing around Chirk Castle just outside of Wrexham recently. The castle was built in 1295 by Roger Mortimer De Chirk, uncle of Roger Mortimer, 1st Earl of March as part of King Edward I's chain of fortresses across the north of Wales. I was an extremely cold day, despite the crystal blue sky, and it was good test for my low key style of photography as normally direct sunlight makes everything seems very flat. I wouldn't say it was a successful photography trip, as you can see from my two uploads - the only two worth posting. :-) I just seem to struggle composing the frame with open blue skies, as pretty as they look, there's no drama or intrigue to them. Bring back the clouds! At least that will make things warmer.
