He addressed a crowd of over 2000 people from a rock on the side of the path, which is known today as the Gladstone Rock. This is thought to be one of the most hard going paths up Snowdon, as it starts only a little above sea level. The path starts off wide and quite even, but becomes rocky towards the second half, and then crosses loose scree. This location was used as the Khyber Pass in the well known film Carry on up the Khyber.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

In response to the WordPress Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

This week, share a photo that represents focus to you. Are you a stickler for getting in close to your subjects and capturing every detail, or do you prefer a more ethereal look that illustrates the sensations of the moment?

Focus on what’s important ….

The Eye London
The River Thames flows through southern England. It is the longest river entirely in England and the second longest in the United Kingdom
The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames, also known as the Millennium Wheel.
The structure is 443 feet (135 m) tall and the wheel has a diameter of 394 feet (120 m). When erected in 1999 it was the world’s tallest Ferris wheel.
Each of the 32 ovoidal capsules weighs 10 tonnes and can carry 25 people.
County Hall is a building was the headquarters of London County Council and later the Greater London Council. The building is on the South Bank of the River Thames
Puffin Island Lighthouse
The lighthouse at Penmon Point was built after the tragic disaster of the steam ship Rothesay Castle in 1831.

The lighthouse watches over the treacherous waters between Penmon Point and Puffin Island, south east Anglesey, Wales, UK
Spitfire over Snowdon

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries before, during and after the Second World War. Introduced in 1938
Mountain River Snowdonia
Devils Kitchen, named because it looks like a chimney, and in olden days when there was cloud on the mountains it looked like smoke coming out of the chimney, and it was said that it was the devil cooking. Cwm Idwal is a very popular attraction for visitors interested in walking, climbing, fishing and geology.
Cwm Idwal is a national nature reserve, and one of the few places in Britain where the Snowdon Lilly can be found. It is an area to be treated with extra special respect. It is an area which is home to lots of wildlife.

Sunbeam Talbot Darracq
The Anglo-French STD (Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq) combine collapsed in 1935. The French Talbot company was acquired and reorganised by Venetian-born engineer Antonio Lago and after that, the “Talbot-Lago” name was used internationally. On the home market the cars still bore the Talbot badge they had carried since 1922, which was when, in France, the “Talbot-Darracq” name had given way to “Talbot”. At the same time, the British interests of Talbot were taken over by the Rootes Group and the parallel use of the Talbot brand in France and Britain ended. Talbot-Lago cars sold in Britain were now to be badged as Darracqs.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Security

In response to the WordPress Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Security

Security is the degree of resistance to, or protection from, harm. It applies to any vulnerable and/or valuable asset, such as a person, dwelling, community, item, nation, or organization.

Emotional security is the measure of the stability of an individual’s emotional state. Emotional insecurity or simply insecurity is a feeling of general unease or nervousness that may be triggered by perceiving of oneself to be vulnerable
wikipedia

Emotional insecurity is how I’m feeling right now as Mom was rushed into hospital nearly a month ago and it’s still touch and go whether she will survive, so not much of an interesting blog off me again this week as it’s hard to concentrate, but need to keep busy.

Medieval Knight
Ancient security – 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”.
Baluarte De San Diego Gardens
Shotgun security at Baluarte De San Diego Gardens. Located along the walls of Intramuros, Manila, Philippines. it was designed and built by Jesuit priest Antonio Sedeno from 1586 to 1587 and it is one of the oldest stone fortifications in Intramuros.
War Memorabilia
Vintage security a First World War gas mask, a clip of five bullets and the Webley Revolver, the standard issue service pistol for the armed forces of the United Kingdom, the British Empire, and the Commonwealth from 1887 until 1963.
church-door15mg
Entrance to St Celynnin Church, possibly one of the remotest churches in Wales and is amongst the oldest, hence the small secure safe. A small and simple building, it probably dates from the 12th century and was pre-dated by an earlier church of timber, near Henryd, Conwy, north Wales, UK,
St Tegai Cross
security rail around the Celtic cross at St Tegai church Llandygai north Wales
Victorian Hospital ward
Victorian Hospital ward keeping us safe and secure – maybe
Penmon Lighthouse
Security Light – The lighthouse at Penmon Point was built after the tragic disaster of the steam ship Rothesay Castle in 1831. When a day trip from Liverpool turned to tragedy with the loss of passengers and crew, it was decided that a lighthouse and accompanying Lifeboat Station was needed. The lighthouse watches over the treacherous waters between Penmon Point and Puffin Island, south east Anglesey, Wales, UK
Duke of Lancaster Graffiti
Keep out security fence and sign. Graffiti 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) Impressionism style
Trevors Rusty Gate
Rusty security gate over looking Trevor Basin, a Canal basin on the Llangollen Canal, situated near Trevor, in Clwyd, between Llangollen and Ruabon. The basin was originally built at the northern end of the central section of the Ellesmere Canal, just 150yds north of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, north wales, UK
