Aberystwyth, Dyfed, Wales, Uk

“Aberystwyth's most spectacular natural phenomenon occurs at dusk in the Autumn & Winter months. Thousands of starlings will fly in to roost under the pier at night. They arrive in separate groups from the surrounding countryside and as the numbers build and they will sometimes engage in a spectacle of synchronised flying before finally settling down for the night. Each dusk as the sky fills with birds, the prom fills with a small, dedicated, hopeful crowd of birdwatchers and photographers with their optical appendages ready to appreciate the coming spectacle.”

Greetings. Wishing you a Happy and joyful weekend. Have fun and take care. Hope all is well with you.

The ruins of Aberystwyth's castle date from the thirteenth century. They now house a pleasant park and play area.

 

Construction of Aberystwyth Castle began in 1277 after Edward I's defeat of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd. Work was not fully completed until 1289, although it managed to survive two Welsh uprisings.

 

In 1404, the castle fell to Owain Glyndwr and was occupied until being recaptured by cannon in 1408. During this occupation it was made an important seat of Welsh government. The castle also served as a prison to four French prisoners in 1415, while in 1637 a royal mint was established here.

The Old College is located where Castle house once stood. Originally built by John Nash, it was then bought by Tomas Savin ( famous railway contractor who was involved with the Cambrian Railways). The building was then sold to the University of Wales. The main campus is now located in the Penglais campus near the National Library of Wales.

 

This photograph was taken when the tide was around 1m, high tide is around 5.3m. At high tide the sea is half way up the sea wall.

 

The Old College has been used in the series Hinterland.

 

Greetings my friends. Wishing you a happy weekend

A stormy January afternoon at the Stone Jetty, Aberystwyth.

Just back from my fabulous Florida hols and still going through my photos, jet lag permitting. But I came across this stormy one of Aberystwyth taken forever ago. I love Aber and I just know my next visit is going to be really exciting but thought I would share this with you before I bore you all silly with photos of Mickey Mouse and Harry Potter!

 

Left Orlando in 26degree heat. Arrived in Manchester in 2 degree flippin' cold!

  

On the right is Aberystwyth Railway Station, a familiar sight for those who have visited or have been/are students at Aberystwyth University. On the left, built on the old station platform, is the excellent Craft. A shop that has no doubt supplied many a student with a secondhand waredrobe, chest of drawers and even a bed. But that's not all it sells, you can find a real bargin in there from old cameras to antiques and lots of other interesting things and it is associated with the charity Help for Heros.

Dolphin and Fishing Boat, Aberystwyth Harbour, Wales, Uk

Another LE from Aberystwyth, and potentially not the last... And a bit of processing experimentation...

Colorful houses in this holiday resort and administrative centre of the west coast of Wales. It is also home to the University of Wales Aberystwyth and the National Library.

Photographed from Allt Wen at low tide towards Aberystwyth and Wellington Monument.

A member of the biggest bird criminal organisation in the whole of coastal Wales, the Sea Gull Mafia, surveys its territory from the roof of a car opposite Sophie's Café in Aberystwyth. These bird mafia members have often been seen attacking innocent chip eaters seated at the many outdoor tables of the many cafés in the town of Aberystwyth, including P.D's Diner and Caesar's as well as other cafés in towns and cities up and down coastal Wales. Their crimes include the systematic destruction of black rubbish bags put out for collection & loud rave parties on the roof tops at all hours. They now out number the more local pigeon mafia 5-1 and although the pigeons do their best to compete for the odd chip or half eaten beef burger they don't stand much chance against the might of the Sea Gull Mafia!

Aberystwyth literally 'Mouth of the Ystwyth' is an ancient market town, administrative centre, community, and holiday resort in Ceredigion, Wales. It is located near the confluence of the Ystwyth and the Afon Rheidol.

Historically part of Cardiganshire, since the late 19th century, Aberystwyth has also been a major Welsh educational centre, with the establishment of a university college there in 1872.

I took a walk on the wild side of Aberystwyth this morning or to be more precise the view from the far end of South Beach looking towards Aberystwyth Castle. The sea was quite choppy and very yellowish in colour and although the rain had stopped storm clouds were clearly visible looking North.

 

Zoom in for a closer look.
