I lurve my new camera and trying to get used to it on the surface before I next jump in the salty stuff and try and figure out the white balance etc so here by demand of a select few but hopefully enjoyed by the majority are some of my recent snaps.

BTW it's a canon ixus 120

Taken in Caernarfon Castle

Nice pics - but (i) lose the bloody date (you can't get rid of it later - and it's already in the exif data), (ii) a bit of post processing may help and (iii) look at the sky angle - if you get the right angle you get lovely deep blue skies, the wrong angle and it all goes wishy washy (I know - I'm just reviewing some pics from the lovely light on he south coast on Sat!).

I agree with points (i) and (ii)
but the blue in the sky has to be there in the first place and is more about the F stop & shutter speed than angle, and a polorising filter helps.

I like the waterfall pic by the way but would have got down lower ;)

You can't see Caernarfon Castle from the motorway, it was more likely to have been Conway Castle? Both are well worth a visit if you're diving for a few days.
I was thinkin same thing especially since nearest Motorway is the M6 + u'd need damn good eyesight 2 c that far, lol. I'm guessin it was Conwy Castle off the A55 :)

Gwrych Castle from A55



You can barely see Conwy castle from the 55 but here is a photo.



Caernarfon castle too.



And if you went past Bangor you may have been able to see Penrhyn castle.



Beaumaris castle is a bit crap in comparison and is on Anglesey.
