Llandudno is a sea side resort on the North Wales coast, this is a view of the western end of the sea front with the pier and above it Great Orme, a large headland overlooking Llandudno.
Another view of the promenade.
Closer to, the pier and the Grand Hotel.
Looking down from the start of the road round Great Orme, a different view of the pier.
Looking along the toll road from near where the previous photo was taken.
This view is from the Great Orme across the bay and towards Little Orme.
A zoom in view of Little Orme.
Llandudno seen from the top of Great Orme.
At 207 metres the summit of Great Orme is in demand as a site for aerials as can be seen in this view of the Summit Complex - which includes a bar and café.
Weather permitting there are marvellous views from the summit, this is looking out to Penmaenmawr.
Slightly further round is Anglesey with Puffin Island at the mouth of the Menai Strait.
Zoomed in a bit on Conwy with its bridges and castle at the mouth of Afon Conwy.
The top of Great Orme can be reached by car, on foot, by cable car or by the Great Orme Tramway, two cars of which are seen here passing each other at the mid point of the upper section.
One of the trams nears the summit of Great Orme.
An attraction on Great Orme is Bronze age copper mines. These were worked some 3,500 years ago, they are well worth a visit to see what men achieved by hand with only simple bone and stone tools.
Excavations are still continuing and there is an archaeologist on site to answer your questions.
The Great Orme headland is home to a herd of goats, this one is stood quite unconcernedly right by a steep drop down to the sea.
Her kid was resting on the hill side, it has a hard life ahead of it but some lovely views!
Another goat was climbing up this cliff face in search of food.
This one was 60 feet up a seemingly sheer cliff, quite how it got there or how it would get down I don't know, but I suppose it knows its way around its home turf.
Just the other side of Little Orme from Llandudno is Rhôs-on-Sea, with its little harbour sheltering behind a breakwater. It's unusual in being open at both ends.
The promenade at Rhôs continues along to Colwyn Bay with its rather run down Victorian pier - what British seaside resort is complete without one?
Near the pier at Colwyn Bay there were a lot of Oystercatchers among the gulls on the beach.
