Weekly Photo Challenge: Against the Odds

The theme of this week’s photo challenge is Against the Odds: Maybe it’s a photo of an unlikely occurrence. Maybe it’s the photo itself that goes against the odds — a shot you never thought you’d get. Maybe it’s a photo of something you’re not sure you’ll be able to do.

Or maybe i will just Wing It and hope for the best lol

Ruins at Cwmorthin
Looking down over the lake at the ruins at Cwmorthin Slate Quarry, near the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales, UK

Decorative Gate Snowdonia
Against the odds of getting a people free photo at the decorative Iron Gate, the gate leads to Idwal lake and the Devils Kitchen, with Tryfan Mountain to the left. Snowdonia national park, north Wales,UK
Tryfan Snowdonia
Against the odds the clouds broke and Sunbathed Tryfan mountain was visible. One of the most famous and recognisable peaks in Britain, having a classic pointed shape with rugged crags. At 917.5 m above sea level it is the fifteenth highest mountain in Wales. The top of Tryfan looks like a face looking up, with the mouth on the left then the nose and eyebrows Winter at the Snowdonia National Park, north Wales, UK
Llandudno Pier

Conwy Castle
Against the odds of being bitten by a medieval vampire i took this night photograph of Conwy Castle, Conwy Castle dominates the mouth of the River Conwy and the walled town of Conwy in North Wales, UK The castle was built on the orders of King Edward I of England and construction began in 1283. Today the castle is one of the best preserved castles in the whole of North Wales.

Happy New Year 2017

As the New Year dawns, I hope it is filled with the promises of a brighter tomorrow.

I apologise for not updating my blog for many months, my Mom has been very sick most of the year and had a fall over Christmas and broke her hip, she was admitted to hospital yesterday after a very long and tiring day of x-rays and waiting for ambulances etc.
She may have the operation in the next few days, hopefully ready for her 84th Birthday on the 3rd January.

As a thank you to my Blog friends and followers here is a 20% discount code GSKPFD off my Fineart America site for January 2017.

May you have a great year and a wonderful time ahead.
Happy New Year 2017

Weekly Photo Challenge: Quest

I’v been struggling with this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge Quest A long or arduous search for something, in my case a Quest for a nice photo, a Knights Quest ….

 

Medieval Knight
Start of our Knights Quest – Medieval suit of armour. The word armour was introduced into use in the Middle Ages as a borrowing from the French. It is dated from 1297, as a “mail, defensive covering worn in combat” from Old French armoire, itself derived from the Latin armatura “arms and/or equipment” with the root arma “arms or gear”.
Room of Swords
Quest for some weapons – room full of victorian weapons in the old mansion
penrhyn-castle25mg
Get the lawn looking good before our Knights quest begins -a mock Norman castle. It was originally a medieval fortified manor house.
Field Of Daffodils
Yup gardens looking good – Field Of Daffodils
The Anchor
A ship, a ship! My Kingdom for a ship! – The anchor outside Conwy Castle north Wales UK. Construction of the castle began in 1283
Conwy Castle Wales
Plant pot looking good – Built between 1283 and 1289 during King Edward I’s second campaign in North Wales. Conwy remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture.
The Path Leadeth Me Home
My quest for a medieval stairlift – Conwy Castle Wales was built between 1283 and 1289 during King Edward I’s second campaign in North Wales. Conwy remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture.
chirk-castle25mg
It’s time Sir Knight – The Castle the wonderful garden and the sundial
conwycastlewaterv2
Quest for a bigger boat – Conwy Castle reflections north Wales UK. Construction of the castle began in 1283
Caernarfon Castle
Re-Quest the sea comes back – Caernarfon Castle is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating. Picking a fight with this massive structure would have been a daunting prospect. By throwing his weight around in stone, King Edward I created what is surely one of the most impressive of Wales’s castles. Most castles are happy with round towers, not Caernarfon! Polygonal towers were the order of the day, with the Eagle Tower being the most impressive of these. note the colour-coded stones carefully arranged in bands. The site of this great castle wasn’t chosen by accident. It had previously been the location of a Norman motte and bailey castle and before that a Roman fort stood nearby. The lure of water and easy access to the sea made the banks of the River Seiont an ideal location. Caernarfon Castle is architecturally one of the most impressive of all of the castles in the world.
Dolbadarn Castle
Think our Knight needs something a little more lavish for his quest – Dolbadarn Castle stands on a rocky hill some eighty feet above Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris in the Llanberis Pass between Caernarfon and Snowdonia. The 13th century Castle is listed as a World Heritage Site.
Victorian kitchen
Fit for a Knights quest – Victorian kitchen and table
Ancient Coffin
End of our Knights Quest – 13th century stone coffin in Gwydir Chapel at St Grwsts Church, Llanrwst, Conwy, north Wales.

Elephant
Elephants have been revered in Thailand for many centuries. Famous as the strongest beasts of burden, in Thailand they were important in battle, with kings mounted on Elephants fighting the Burmese to defend Thailand on many occasions. They have also been noted for their intelligence, memory and pleasant nature. A Thai legend has it that a marriage is like an elephant– the husband is the front legs, that choose the direction, the wife the back legs, providing the power !

Graffiti, photo-realistic artist have been using the Duke since August 2012 in hope of making it Europes largest open air Art Gallery. The Duke of Lancaster was a railway steamer passenger ship that operated in Europe from 1956 to 1979, and is currently beached near Mostyn Docks, on the River Dee, north-east Wales. The Lancaster was sold to Liverpool based company Empirewise Ltd, who intended her to be used as a static leisure centre and market. She arrived at her new home at Llanerch-y-Mor, near Mostyn, on 10 August 1979. The ship was brought into a permanent dock and the hull was sealed not in concrete, as is commonly thought, but surrounded by a large tonnage of sand pulled out of the Dee estuary. Known as The Fun Ship, it was also possible to visit her bridge and engine room. Conversion for use as a 300-room hotel did not appear to go beyond the preliminary planning stage. Its use as The Fun Ship was relatively short-lived and it was subsequently closed to the public because access to the ship is via a bridge under the North Wales railway line, which is too low for emergency vehicles. Over time, the vessel has become increasingly derelict. The ship was later used as a warehouse by its owners Solitaire Liverpool Ltd, a clothing company registered to the same address as Empirewise Ltd. Despite rumours that the ship would be scrapped, the company stated that they have no plans either to sell it or to restore it and its current use is uncertain. Despite having large amounts of its exterior paintwork covered in rust, the interior of the ship is in good condition. It was featured in the 2011 series of BBC2s Coast. (Wikipedia)

Each of the 32 ovoidal capsules weighs 10 tonnes and can carry 25 people.

Thursday’s Special: Profusion

Paula at Lost in Translation has given us a list of five unrelated words to make a photo post on one of the selected themes for this weeks Thursday Special

Elusive
Viscid
Brilliant
Profusion
Disorder

Profusion an abundance or large quantity of something ….

 

Sunset At The Lighthouse
Profusion of Colour – Seascape Sunset at the abandoned Talacre Lighthouse North Wales UK
Welsh Farmhouse
Profusion of Ruralness – traditional stone-built 16th-century farmhouse with crooked chimney
Crib Goch Mountain
Profusion of Danger – Crib Goch is described as a knife-edged arête in the Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd, Wales. The name means red ridge in the Welsh language. The highest point on the arête is 923 metres (3,028 ft) above sea level. All routes which tackle Crib Goch are considered mountaineering routes in winter or scrambles in summer The zigzag path leads down to the merging paths of The Pyg Track and Miners Track above lake Glaslyn. Snowdonia north Wales UK
Welsh Cottage Ruins
Profusion of Abandonment – old abandoned quarry cottages Moel Siabod, Snowdonia National Park. North Wales.UK
Tryfan In The Ogwen Valley
Profusion of Water – Tryfan mountain forms part of the Glyderau group, and is one of the most famous and recognisable peaks in Britain, having a classic pointed shape with rugged crags. At 917.5 m above sea level it is the fifteenth highest mountain in Wales. Top of Tryfan looks like a face looking up, with the mouth on the left then the nose and eyebrows – can you see it?
Autumn Leaves
Profusion of Autumn – waterfall at the Clywedog Valley, coedpoeth, Wrexham north Wales, UK
British Museum London
Profusion of History – The British Museum of Natural History London
Robin Redbreast
Profusion of Red – The UKs favourite bird – with its bright red breast it is familar throughout the year and especially at Christmas! Males and females look identical, and young birds have no red breast and are spotted with golden brown. Robins sing nearly all year round and despite their cute appearance, they are aggressively territorial and are quick to drive away intruders. They will sing at night next to street lights.
Llanrwst Bridge and Tea Room
Profusion of Architecture – 15th century cottage, once a courthouse, and now a tea-room owned by the National Trust next to Pont Fawr Bridge Llanrwst north Wales, UK A ford crossed the river Conwy in this vicinity long before it was bridged. The original bridge was declared unsafe in 1626 and preparations began for its replacement, In 1634 four Lancashire stonemasons were contracted to build the new bridge. The year 1636 and the royal coat of arms are shown on a plaque on the upstream side of the bridge, which is known as Pont Fawr – large bridge. The workmen who built the bridge inserted the keystones for the central arch upside down. This was not discovered until the opening day, when the arch collapsed. The central arch rises to c.18 metres above the water. The bridge features cutwaters – stonework shaped like a ship’s bow – up its full height. The river is the outlet for rainwater and meltwater from across a large area of Snowdonia one of the wettest places in Britain. The western arch was rebuilt in 1703, after the original collapsed in 1702. Since then the bridge has stood the test of countless floods and the advent of motorised road vehicles. The bridge is too narrow for vehicles to pass, and the hump-back limits forward visibility. This explains the local nickname Pont y Rhegi – bridge of swearing. Panorama
