Welsh Dragon on Flag

The Welsh Dragon, known in Welsh as Y Ddraig Goch, is the red dragon that appears on the national Flag of Wales. The above photo of the flag was taken in the spring at Portmeirion. I enjoy the challenge of capturing a flag because rarely is the wind strong enough to give the above image. It is another case of digital photography really helping out. Here I was able to take 10 or 20 exposures and then delete 19 of them whilst looking at the LCD screen on the back of the camera. The one resulting image shows the full flag in the wind.
