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.”

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

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.

Llandudno Pier
Against the odds of breaking my neck on the slippery rocks i managed to get a long exposure image of the Llandudno Pier, a seaside resort on the coast of North Wales, UK. At 2,295 ft the pier is the longest in Wales and the fifth longest in England and Wales
Conwy Castle

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

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rare

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

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.
1925 Dodge
1925 Dodge Four Tourer
1935 Vintage Morgan
1935 morgan 1000cc From 1910-1952 the Morgan Motor Company sold a huge variety of different three-wheeler models. They all had in common the independent front-wheel-suspension, the arrangement of the engine in front plainly visible and rear-wheel-drive. Seating was for two or four persons.

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
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
1926 GN Parker
The GN was a British cyclecar made in Hendon, North London, from 1910. The name derives from its founders, H.R. Godfrey (1887-1968) and Archibald Frazer Nash (1889-1965). Production ceased in 1923 but the company kept trading until 1925, which is odd as this is a 1926 model.
1930 Delage D8
1930 Delage D8 Cabriolet 4060cc Delage was a French luxury automobile and racecar company founded in 1905 by Louis Delage in Levallois-Perret near Paris; it was acquired by Delahaye in 1935 and ceased operation in 1953.
