The story behind this image

The town of Caernarfon on the North Wales coast is arguably the epicentre of welsh culture in this part of the country.

Famous for its huge and intact castle, now a UNESCO World Heritage site, Caernarfon also boasts a promenade, on the seaward side of the town walls, leading to the recently developed Victoria Dock, complete with theatre, art gallery, restaurants and small harbour.

The walk around the harbour walls is a real treat, taking in the views and ogling the rather expensive yachts that have made Victoria Dock their home.

This panoramic collage, captured on a beautiful evening in July, takes in the full sweep of Victoria Dock as viewed from the harbour wall near the entrance to the Menai Straits and the Habourmaster's office.
