The story behind this image

The medieval walled town of Caernarfon on the North Wales coast is the local epicentre for all things artistic and cultural.

But even so my wife Liz and I were surprised to learn of a rather unusual outdoor exhibition taking place in August of 2019, when the main street through the old town was adorned with a range of colourful umbrellas, suspended from wires over Palace Street.

So of course, we had to spend an afternoon exploring the views and photographing the umbrellas from a variety of angles, using the famous castle as a backdrop for some of the images.
