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

  1. Great photos! Loved the lighthouse. One tiny thing: The photo of the ‘British Museum’ is actually the British Museum of Natural History located in Kensington, London. Neo-Gothic architecture here whereas the British Museum in Bloomsbury is Neo-Classical.
