Medieval, Gwrych Castle, Abergele, Wales
Local history claims that the first castle at Gwrych was built by the Normans in the 12th century. It was seized by the Welsh prince Rhys ap Gruffydd (the Lord Rhys) of Deheubarth in about 1170 who then rebuilt the timber castle in stone. This castle was later destroyed by Cromwell's army following the English Civil War of the mid-17th century.

More Aurora in Tromsø, Norway
Ole: "I had seen the Northern Lights already a few times this season, although still too bright to get any good pictures. Tonight, however, on Aug. 27th, even if still not completely dark, I felt conditions were good to photograph the auroras. It started early, you could see the auroras at 10pm before it was dark, and around midnight when it was darker, I witnessed an explosion of geomagnetic lights in the sky. A large yellowish setting moon provided some nice light in the horizon as well to complete the scenes. What a great start to the season and great way to try out my new camera. :)"
