Gothic Crag

Viewed from just below the castle, the crag of rock on which Carreg Cennen Castle stands appears quite Gothic, even if it is largely covered in lush greenery!

Ovens and Kilns

The structure and purpose is basically the same even if the name and end product is different. The first photo shows an oven inside the walls of Carreg Cennen Castle. The second shows two of a set of three linked lime kilns situated outside the main walls of the castle.

Corridor To The Caves

This apparently coffin shaped corridor is hewn from the rock on top of which Carreg Cennen Castle stands on the edge of the Brecon Beacons in Carmarthenshire, South Wales. It leads down to a cave that must have provided either a fantastic fridge or an excellent dungeon  for the occupants of the past.

And today one of my photos of the castle has been posted as part of the Monochrome Madness series by Leanne Cole Photography ūüôā

Less Is More – Broken Walls

This is part of the ruined walls of Carreg Cennen Castle in Carmarthenshire, South Wales.

Photographically, less in the frame and a relatively short depth of field has provided a greater range of texture and contrast. The technical elements of this image may be important in helping to produce the photo in the first place, but the enjoyment or interpretation of it is personal to our own individual perception.

Distant Burial Mounds

Looking across the landscape from Carreg Cennen Castle in South Wales shows one of two pairs of ancient burial mounds visible to the eye on a distant ridge of the Black Mountain.

This area on the edge of the Brecon Beacons is beautiful and has plenty of footpaths to walk, but as yet, I have not produced a StillWalks video here.
