Conwy Castle – UK 2017

With its architetural symmetry, it's myriad towers-on-top-of-towers and crenellations, Conwy may well be the most castle-y of all of the fortresses in Edward I's "ring of iron" around Wales. The walls around the old part of the city are pretty impressive, too. I sorta played tourist today, just carrying one small camera and lens instead of the usual "artist/photographer" pile of gear - tripod, lenses, etc. The place was crawling with tourists, so it was kinda fun to see it from their perspective.

With it’s architectural symmetry, turrets within towers and massive ramparts, Conwy Castle in Wales embodies all the qualities we’ve come to associate with a medieval fortress.
