Dinefwr Castle – A historical castle – A great day out

Perched in a commanding hilltop position above the Tywi Valley, Dinefwr Castle occupies a similarly significant position in Welsh history. In the 12th century, the fortress was in the possession of The Lord Rhys, ruler of the ancient south Wales kingdom of Deheubarth. His reign saw a rare period of peace and stability that led to a flowering of Welsh culture, music and poetry.

That was a little intro from the Dinefwr Castle website which can be found here. A really stunning place to visit, but a place where a full day is needed to experience the whole grounds. What we did experience though was breath-taking, and it’s beauty will mean we will return and discover parts we have never seen before.

I used my trusty Fujifilm X-T3 with my 18-135mm as there were some rain showers. Although I photographed in my latest MGA Provia Punch recipe, I decided for this blog I would re-edit them. Images were mainly edited in Photoscape X Pro, while the tree image was edited in Darktable. I just thought these edits should reflect the history of the site.

It was truly a fantastic day out, hopefully these images have captured the day well.

I have another blog coming tomorrow, as my new camera arrived after I returned home from Dinefwr. I have take a few test shots, so I’ll use these an an example. Until then… Thank you.

  1. Hello Mark, Normally I would say, shame about the weather, but in this case it probably enhances the atmosphere of the area.

    And I am eagerly awaiting the first shots of the new camera!
