Weekly Photo Challenge: Jubilant

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

It was a very jubilant moment when i was invited to the Oulton Park Vintage Car Festival on Saturday 21st May 2016

Iris Tourer 1912
Iris was a British car brand that was manufactured from 1906-1925 by Legros & Knowles Ltd in Willesden, London and Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. The Iris cars were luxury vehicles with large, water-cooled four-cylinder in-line engines. A striking feature of all models was the diamond shaped radiator grill. Colour version available
Classic Morgans

Jaguar E-Type 4.2
The Jaguar E-Type or the Jaguar XK-E for the North American market is a British sports car, which was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing established the marque as an icon of 1960s motoring. At a time when most cars had drum brakes, live rear axles, and mediocre performance, the E-Type sprang on the scene with 150 mph and a sub-7 second 0-60 time, monocoque construction, disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, independent front and rear suspension, and unrivaled looks. The E-Type was based on Jaguar’s D-Type racing car which had won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three consecutive years 1955-1957

EN398, JE-J Personal aircraft of W/Cdr Johnnie Johnson, commanding officer of the Kenley Wing Summer 1943 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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

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

Apologies for not posting over the last few weeks, due to illness in the family I’ve been distracted from doing anything on-line.

The Earth is the only planet in our solar system not to be named after a Greek or Roman deity. The Earth was formed approximately 4.54 billion years ago and is the only known planet to support life.

About 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water.

It’s fortunate that i only take photos on Earth so here’s my watery attempt for this weeks Earth challenge …….

Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape

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

The majority of my photography is landscape so I decided to keep this weeks challenge local as the area of north Wales I live is very beautiful.

Snowdon Miners Path
Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres (3,560 ft) above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands. It is located in Snowdonia National Park and has been described as probably the busiest mountain in Britain. The zigzag path leads down to the merging paths of The Pyg Track (left) and Miners Track (right) above lake Glaslyn. Following the opening of the Llanberis pass in 1832, the Miners Path was built to carry copper from the Britannia Copper Works near Llyn Glaslyn to Pen y Pass, where it was then transported to Caernarfon. The mining came to an end in 1916, remains from the work can still be seen on the path to this day.
Mountain Railway
The Snowdon Mountain Railway is a narrow gauge rack and pinion mountain railway in Gwynedd, north-west Wales. It is a tourist railway that travels for 4.7 miles from Llanberis to the summit of Snowdon, the highest peak in England and Wales.
Sheep of Snowdonia
Lake Teyrn sits on the popular miners path up to Mount Snowdon past the higher lake Llydaw – the largest and deepest lake on Snowdons is crossed by a causeway at its eastern end. The zigzag path on the left leads down to the merging paths of The Pyg Track and Miners Track above lake Glaslyn. Welsh Mountain sheep are small, hardy sheep from the higher parts of the Welsh mountains. The males have horns, and the females are polled; they have no wool on the face or legs, and they have long tails.
Cwm Idwal Stream
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. north Wales, UK

At 917.5 m above sea level it is the fifteenth highest mountain in Wales. Llyn Ogwen is a ribbon lake in north-west Wales. It lies alongside the A5 road between two mountain ranges of Snowdonia, the Carneddau and the Glyderau. Llyn Ogwen lies at a height of about 310 metres above sea level and has an area of 78 acres but is a very shallow lake, with a maximum depth of only a little over 3 metres. It is fed by a number of streams from the slopes of the mountains which surround it, which include Tryfan and Pen yr Ole Wen.
Ogwen Weir

Avro Vulcan XH558 , The Spirit Of Great Britain is the only airworthy example of the 134 Avro Vulcan V bombers that were operated by the Royal Air Force from 1953 until 1984. Vulcan XH558 served with the RAF between 1960 and 1985 in the bomber, maritime reconnaissance and air-to-air refuelling roles. The RAF operated XH558 as a display aircraft from 1986 until 1992, when budget cuts forced its retirement. The Mymbyr lake located in a very beautiful spot on the outskirts of Capel Curig, north Wales, UK. With one of the best views of Snowdonia
Winter Landscape
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.

To reach it you need to descend a switchback stairway running down the cliff face, over 400 steps down and 400 back up. At the bottom a bridge carries the visitor over a chasm to the island. A height of 41 metres the South Stack Lighthouse has warned passing ships of the treacherous rocks below since its completion in 1809. Textured
Twr Mawr Lighthouse
Llanddwyn Island is situated near the southern entrance to the Menai Strait – a stretch of water than runs between the west coast of Wales and Angelsey, UK. As a result it became an an important route for shipping of slate from the ports of Bangor, Caernarfon and Felinhelli. Originally a beacon (Twr Bach) was built at the tip of the island to provide guidance to ships heading for the Strait but later, in 1845, another more effective lighthouse, Twr Mawr, was added – which was modelled on the windmills of Anglesey. textured

The church and the conical tower were built in the middle of the 12th Century under the authority of Gruffudd ap Cynan and Owain Gwynedd, and it remains to this day as the finest example of a 12th Century church in Gwynedd. A new chancel with richly carved arches and pillars was added in the 13th Century. and Penmon became an Augustinian Priory.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dance

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

King Cobra Village of Ban Khok Sa-Nga in Tambon Sai Mun, Khon Kaen, Thailand

The strange custom of snake dancing and fighting began when a herb farmer began putting on shows to attract customers to the village, the art of breeding and training snakes has been nurtured ever since.

Rumour has it that some visitors have been killed during the shows. The snakes are supposedly not ‘milked’ (regular emptying of the poison glands), nor have the fangs been removed.

The king cobras venom paralyses its victims nervous system, normally killing a man within 15 minutes, with no doctor or pharmacy nearby, herbal medicines produced by mixing crushed leaves and lemon juice are the only treatment for those unlucky enough to get bitten.

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Love

In response to the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: One Love

Bob Marley – One Love Lyrics

One love, one heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One love)
Hear the children crying (One heart)
Sayin’, “Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right.
Sayin’, “Let’s get together and feel all right.”
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

The statue, which is about 12 meters high and 10 meters wide. On each side of the giant statue, there is a huge wooden elephant. Local people walk in circles under the belly of the elephants wishing for good luck. Luang Phor Thuad, whose name is sometimes spelled Luang Phor Thuat, lived some 400 years ago in Southern Thailand. He is now famous all over the country for the miracles that he performed. It was said that Luang Phor Thuad turned salt water into fresh, drinkable water on multiple occasions.
