On the third day of the Olympic torch relay in Wales torchbearer Philip Richards carried the flame at Oystermouth Castle, taking in the view of the town of Mumbles, on the leg from Swansea to Aberystwyth.
The flame travelled by train for the second time on its 8,000-mile journey around the UK. Philip Richards (left) passed the flame to Paul Adams in Mumbles.
Paul Adams carried the Olympic flame on the Swansea Bay Rider land train which follows the route of the first passenger railway in the world. He said: “I didn’t know this was going to happen until a few minutes ago."
Large crowds were out to cheer on torchbearers in Swansea. Runner Robert Harris has had cancer four times to his throat and neck in the past five years, but has completed three half marathons to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The relay then moved onto Llanelli, which according to the town council is "one of the most famous rugby towns in the world". Huge crowds gathered to watch the flame being carried.
Young spectators had fun as they high-fived a toy Wenlock Olympic mascot carried by the torch security team. Once it left Llanelli, the relay moved onto Burry Port before hitting Kidwelly.
In Kidwelly, torchbearer Peter Hale carried the flame at the castle, which was used as a location for the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Spectators captured torchbearer Merrilee Phillips' moment to shine as the relay passed through Haverfordwest.
Jill Edge, a torchbearer in Fishguard, got lots of cheers from the crowds as she navigated the streets on a mobility scooter, decorated with Olympic rings, Welsh and Union flags.
Jacqueline Minchin carried the flame in Llanarth. The 35-year-old who has Down's syndrome is a keen swimmer, competing for Team GB in the 2009 Special Olympics European Championships in Majorca.
Horse breeder Eric Davies rode his Welsh cob Maesmynach Angerdd through Aberaeron. It was the second time that the flame had been on horseback, as Zara Phillips rode with it Cheltenham.
Kyle Thomson, 16, was picked to light the cauldron at Aberystwyth's Vicarage Fields. He said he was "quite nervous but really excited about it."
