Good Morning Everyone,
Following on from my post of St.Asaph's Cathedral, I move further into Wales, to the seaside town of LLandudno.
This is one time when it is a great advantage to see the photograph here as a larger shot on Beta.
Here, you can see much of the town as seen from the top of the Great Orme.rnrnThe Great Orme headland is a massive chunk of limestone rising 207m/679ft straight out of the sea. Little wonder that its name, given by the Vikings, means ‘sea monster’. It’s thought to be over 350 million years old.
The Great Orme’s special importance is reflected in its designation as a Country Park, Special Area of Conservation, Site of Special Scientific Interest and Heritage Coast.
Llandudno has lots to offer as a holiday destination having lots of comfortable Victorian hotels, a lovely sandy beach and the longest pier in Wales.
Have a great day, Bev :-)

I like this view of Llandudno from above. It looks like a neat place and quite inspiring for a long walk among the hills surrounding the town. I suppose this is a mainly residential area some distance from the beach and pier and tourist hotels. It's a beautifully sharp and well exposed photo with very nice colours.

When I was growing up in Liverpool we used to go to Llandudno quite often and take a picnic on the Great Orme! Years since I was last there though. An excellent point of view you had here and you have produced a beautifully clear image with much to see. Very well composed as well. Thanks for this reminder of my younger days.

hello Beverley ,
This is a beautiful view of the town from above . Its situation bewteen rocky hills is very picturesque . In spring , with the light green leavevs of the tree , or in autumn , it must be yet more beautiful .

What a great view of the village, the vantage point gives a wonderful overview of the place, which is so nicely hidden in between the slopes and rocks. The soft light adds a very nice and peaceful mood.

I probably will have trouble prononcing the name of this place...
Wondrtful high POV over the town built uphill's/downhill's. Brown tone with green all around, and distinct clear view of the houses. Excellent outcome on photo.
Have a nice new week,

Un village typiquement anglais dans une campagne typiquement anglaise. J'aime beaucoup le point de vue en plongée et la netteté des détails ainsi que le rendu des couleurs.

interesting place, I like the point of view you chose, it is impressive how the houses are located in the irregular terrain, well done,

You looked for an excellent viewpoint to present us this town and the houses located on different streets. No houses are obstructing the view of others. Seen from here it looks a little like a vertically built city.
I really enjoy looking at this picture and I like its composition with the crossroads of the streets in the center of the image.
Excellent clarity and sharpness.
Best regards, Paul

ottimo punto di vista per fotografare il villaggio dall'alto e tutto lo splendido panorama.
Mi piace quel triangolo di cielo, da respiro a tutta la foto.

Impressive viewpoint to this town of rough terrain and steep hills. Everything looks quite traditional, I guess most of those buildings were there already 50 years ago. A pleasant sunny moment.
Funny, I just watched snooker Players Championship from Llandudno on TV.

Panoromik netliği güzel bir yerleşim fotoğrafı.
Evlerin güzelliğine ve şahsiyetine bayıldım.
Betondan yapılmış çirkin bina yok.
Estediği kadraj ile belirtmişsiniz.
