Castle Coch

I live just up the road from this castle and have never photographed it from a distance. How mad is that? This picture has been taken from J32 of the M4. It not a great place to stand - noisy, dirty and a bit smelly. However with a telephoto lens you can pick this scene out from above the Cardiff International Hotel. You need to take care as a house roof and street light try to creep in at the bottom. Stressful to shoot - cars whipping past - but relaxing to look at now! I'm just trying to keep up with Gtj-45!
