Llandudno Victorian Pier
Viewed from happy valley in Llandudno, the famous Victorian pier juts out into the Irish Sea. Llandudno is a Victorian seaside resort, town and community in Conwy County Borough, Wales. Llandudno, "Queen of the Welsh Resorts", a title first implied as early as 1864, is now the largest seaside resort in Wales, and lies on a flat isthmus of sand between the Welsh mainland and the Great Orme peninsula. Historically a part of Caernarfonshire, Llandudno was formerly in the district of Aberconway

We were up that way a couple of years ago and think Llandudno is quite a pleasant town, one photo I had was from the pier to the seafront on the other side.
I think you were trying to frame the picture here Frank with the trees, but sorry for me I find the branches on the RH tree just too much.
But a nice view of the old pier and into the distance for the wind turbines, and the GUs not too obtrusive either. Well seen and certainly worth having a go.

A good shot of the pier, with the turbines showing in the distance, but I am not keen on the overhanging branches, it seems to be a bit of a dstraction, but that is just my opinion, see what the others have to say they know a lot more than me.

I hVe to agree with John and Helen; I think the overhanging branches dominate the scene too much and take the eye away from the pier. I like Llandudno and it still had a genteel feel to the place despite its proximity to Merseyside. The Great Orme and it's tramway are a delight.

Can but agree with the above comments Frank. Think you have uploaded an edit so will comment on that one
Mazda_Man  [Mar 17, 2014 at 03:24 PM]
OK thanks George, it is another in the series rather than an edit, but the comments are appreciated except for the slur on my home town by Alan, no need for that.

Late in on this Frank but got to say, I prefer This image because it's much more interesting - the other is a bit ordinary after seeing that wind turbine field out at sea on this one. Love it !
