Photographer's Note

Good Morning Friends,

This Beta Version looks bigger and better.

This is the Great Orme, a huge limestone headland, curved and moulded by nature, overlooking the town of Llandudno, on the coast of North Wales.
It gets its name from the Viking word orm, meaning sea serpent, for the headland, particularly from the sea, resembles the head of a serpent.

On this cool morning in February, there were hardly any other people exploring the beach or headland.

In the mid ground, you will be able to see a white building which is the point from which the toll road operates. The toll road circulates the bottom of the Orme, is one way and is about 4½ miles in length.

The Great Orme is an amazing place for wild flowers, birds, walks with excellent views and, there is an old Bronze Age copper mine, where a rich seam of copper was mined. Sadly for us, the mine did not open until mid-March but, we will be back!

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
