The story behind this image

The imposing ruins of Flint castle, one of the many built to control the welsh by King Edward the First, sit next to the silted up estuary of the River Dee, right on the border between England and Wales.

Even in its semi-demolished condition the castle is still an imposing sight, and is now under the care of CADW: Welsh Historic Monuments.

I find that Flint castle, and the others like it strung our along the welsh coast and countryside, make for great photographic subjects.

You can either focus in on the details in the crumbling stonework, or take a step back as I have done here, and capture a view of the castle set in its surroundings.

Mind you, to make a meaningful composition of the entire castle that didn't also include acres of grass and sky, I needed to shoot several overlapping frames in order to create this panoramic collage.

That path added a handy leading line as well!
