Llyn y Fan Fach – a walk in the clouds

Llyn y Fan Fach

After an interesting drive down some very narrow lanes and unmade roads you eventually come to the parking spot for the climb to this lake. We arrived on a misty, low cloud, day. Parked up and then started the 1.5 mile trek to the top. It’s a good steep climb but there are many things

Don’t let the sun shine down on me !

Early morning trips out in the wilds of Kent can have their rewards. Hit this place nice and early on a Sunday morning, the early mist was just lifting to allow the sun to shine through, walking under the tree canopy we got see see some amazing shafts of light drifting down towards the ground.

Waterfalls of Wales

Waterfalls of Wales

Nowhere else within Wales is there such a richness and diversity of waterfalls within such a small area as can be found in the Vale of Neath. The abundance of them has led to the region becoming known as the “Waterfall Country”. Cool in summer, sculptural in winter, wreathed in myths and fringed with ferns,

Melincourt Falls

Long exposure to the falls

They say you should always explore what is on your doorstep! Sadly left this to the last day of our holiday in Wales to explore! Melincourt Falls – Nestled in a tiny valley this place is like a little lost world! You can hear the falls as you walk up the track besides the river.

Derelict Dungeness

Fishing Boat at Dungeness

Abandoned..decayed..derelict..not the sort of things you’d expect to find on a Nature Reserve! Take a trip down to Dungeness on the South Coast and you’ll have an mazing day, whatever the weather, day or night. The beach and foreshore are littered with abandoned fishing boats all in various state of decay. A number of old fishing

Box Quarry!

Cathedral at Box

After a manic 3 weeks at work it was time to kick back and have a laugh…mainly at the expense of Jimbo today, who, combined with a terrible weak bladder and the courage from a character from a Wizard of Oz story made the 5 odd hours getting lost under Wiltshire just about bearable! Box Mine…or

Sunset

Sunset across Shepherdswell

Sunset or sundown is the daily disappearance of the Sun below the horizon, as a result of Earth’s rotation. The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun’s disk disappears below the horizon. The ray path of light from the setting Sun is highly distorted near

Bluebell Woods

Bluebell woods

Denge Woods (18.04.2014) went out to photograph the bluebells in the woodland, managed to find a few orchids that are just coming through on Bonsai Bank. Taken from the footpath at full 200mm focal length with the camera on Auto (sometimes you just have to let technology take over) as there are so many orchids

Denge Woods

Denge Woods - we are here!

Such a lovely morning for a walk in the woods. And as usual we were the only ones about. Never ceases to amaze me how few people visit this site, especially with it being so close to Canterbury. There wasn’t much to photograph, a couple more weeks and all the flowers will be out. We

Nesting Parrot

Nesting Parrot, a photo by The Urban Adventure on Flickr. Don’t go to Richmond Park on a predicted “Met Office Heat Wave” weekend in March! You won’t be able to park 5 million people who probably live within walking distance will drive their enormous Range Rovers, Audis, Mercs, BMW’s and other prestige car marques to
