Caernarfon The castle's majestic persona is no architectural accident: it was designed to echo the walls of Constantinople, the imperial power of Rome and the dream castle, 'the fairest that ever man saw', of Welsh myth and legend. After all these years Caernarfon's immense strength remains unchanged.

Just wishingto make my way toWales for some occasionto shoot this dream castleYour second versionworks great, IMO!

Btw, visting a website about Caernarfon, I actually sawits resemblance to the city walls of Constantinopolis! Eh, they must have beenimpressed bythe architecture during their over fifty years' stay there in Constantinopolis following the fourth crusade ; )
