Denbigh Castle

The Story Behind the Image - Denbigh Castle

A few years ago I stayed for a wonderful week in a holiday cottage near St Asaph in North Wales. One of my ambitions for that week was to photograph Denbigh Castle.

As it turned out I had to visit Denbigh three times before I managed to find just the right light, at just the right time of day, at just the right spot!

On my third attempt, it all came together and I captured this view in the late evening, showing the impressive castle gatehouse from the slope just downhill of the castle.

I loved exploring Denbigh; aside from the castle you can still see large sections of the medieval town walls, a ruined medieval church tower near the castle, a chapel built by the Earl of Leicester, medieval gateways, the ruins of a priory ... you name it, Denbigh has it!
