Weekly Photo Challenge: Satisfaction

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

Share a photo of something that brings you satisfaction. It can be
monumental, minor, or something in between.

The satisfaction of going out and getting a Photo you are happy with 🙂

Rhoscolyn Rocky Coastline
Gwenfaens Pillar – Rhoscolyn, Anglesey As legend has it, St Gwenfaen from whom the church at Rhoscolyn and medieval well nearby are named after, took refuge on top of this rock stack after fleeing her hermitage from viking raiders. As the tide came in and threatened to cover her rocky refuge, the angels descended and carried her away. Rhoscolyn is a village located on Holy Island, Anglesey, Wales. It is just over five miles south of Holyhead and is the most southerly settlement on the island. The name Rhoscolyn is said to mean The Moor (Rhos) of The Column (colyn), referring to a pillar which the Romans put up to mark the edge of their territories. Rhoscolyn lies in the south western corner of Holy Island, Anglesey, Wales, looking out into the Irish Sea. The defining feature of the landscape here is the dramatic, rocky coastline were there are numerous inlets and coves. Anglesey is an important study area for some of the most ancient rocks on our planet and Rhoscolyn is one of the island’s finest geological locations. It offers a spectacular display of complex, folded rocks which were old long before the mountains of Snowdonia even existed. Anglesey has long been, and continues to be, the focus of much interest, world-wide, by research scientists and students alike.
Lake Ogwen and Tryfan Mountain
Boat house at lake Ogwen, the lake is surrounded by high mountains, including Pen yr Ole Wen and snow covered Tryfan mountain in the Ogwen Valley, It forms part of the Glyderau group, and is one of the most famous and recognisable peaks in Snowdonia, North Wales, UK. Top of Tryfan looks like a face looking up, with the mouth on the left then the nose and eyebrows …… see it?
The Lighthouse Storm
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
Longboat Thailand

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual No2

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

For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, please post a photo that is unusual in some way for you, whether it be through technique, by subject, or in some other unique way.

Exploration Obelisk
Exploration Obelisk Bristol, UK Four sided obelisk is surmounted with a steel armillary sphere made by master blacksmith James Blunt – the whole sculpture standing about 18 feet high. Commissioned by Standard Life Assurance, it was intended to celebrate the mariners who departed from Redcliffe Quay in the 15th and 16th centuries to explore the New World. Men believed at that time that the Unknown deep was occupied by strange and frightening monsters. It was thought by mediaeval men that every animal from the land had a parallel under the Sea. The animals, often half fish, half beast, were based on those which appear in a great contemporary book found in the Chain Library of Wells cathedral. The creatures were modelled up in buff and terracotta clays. After glazing the pieces were embedded into polyester panels with stones and pebbles forming the background. The four panels were then screwed back to a stainless steel framework, and the armillary sphere fixed to the top.
_AJE3375-topeff
St Andrew’s Mission Church (Parish of Minera) at Wern, Coedpoeth, Denbighshire, north Wales, UK.

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

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

In response to the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken – show us something that surprised you on “the road taken.” It could be a heritage building in your city or town as seen from a new-to-you angle, a yummy meal on a road trip detour, or the penny you found on a casual stroll. (I still love to find pennies — always a small thrill!) This challenge is wide open — show us the excitement, surprise, wonder, or amazement of your “road taken.”

Llanrwst Cottage
The road taken to the excellent Llanrwst tea-room owned by the National Trust next to Pont Fawr a narrow three-arch stone bridge, It is said to have been designed by Inigo Jones and it was built in 1636 by Sir John Wynn of Gwydir Castle. The bridge connects the town with Gwydir, a manor house dating from 1492, Originally built to carry horses and carts.

The road taken passed by the wonderful Rhos quarry barrack ruins near Capel Curig. Snowdonia National Park. North Wales.UK.
Pump House Way
The road taken to the old Pumping Engine House at Dorothea Slate Quarry, Talysarn, Nantlle Valley, north Wales, UK. The Dorothea Quarry specialised in the production of blue and purple slates, mostly for roofing. Slate is a metamorphosed shale and that in Snowdonia is of Ordovician age. The quarry officially opened in 1829 though illegal quarrying in and around Nantlle had been active throughout the eighteenth century. Further investment was made in 1835 but production did not really get underway until the building boom of the latter nineteenth century. The Dorothea Quarry is five hundred feet deep and the last four hundred are in water. Around 1900 the company experimented with electric pumps to keep the quarry dewatered but was dissatisfied with them. Accordingly, in 1906 they installed a Cornish engine by Holman Brothers of Camborne, said to be the last ever built. The engine pumped ten gallons per second from five hundred feet working in a shaft of 465 feet depth. Its two coal-fired Lancashire boilers fed steam to a sixty-inch diameter single cylinder that rocked a cast-steel beam of twenty-three tons. The engine worked until 1951 when it was replaced by a sixty horse-power electric pump. It did brief duty in 1956. The engine and its house remain intact though the pump assembly has decayed and the boilers have been vandalised by copper thieves. The quarry closed in 1970

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

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

Field Of Daffodils

The Anchor

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.
