View of the Senni valley from Fan Nedd in the Brecon Beacons, Wales.

Derfydd aur a derfydd arian

Derfydd melfed, derfydd sidan,

Derfydd pon dilledyn helaeth,

Ond er hyn ni dderfydd Hiraeth.

  

A traditional Welsh poem about Hiraeth.

 

Hiraeth is a Welsh word that cannot be translated as there is no similar English word - the closest to it I suppose would be grief or loss – but it is more than that.

 

Taken near Capel Curig in Snowdonia. Sun just over the horizon and the mist came down

 

Took this pic after a lot of rain coming down the valley

Looking out to Wales from Sandy Point, near Weston Super Mare. It was dark and the lights across the border were magical.

A trip to Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales provides the photographer with ample opportunities to shoot images of our industrial heritage. This weekend was, I'm a little embarrassed to admit, my first time at this site. I have seen it sign-posted while on my travels but after seeing an image of a fellow-'flickrer' I decided to take a look for myself. I'm pleased I did.

Fisherman at the Alwen Reservoir, near Nantglyn, Denbigh, North Wales. I thought the image was improved by turning it into black and white in order to create a silhouette rather than the colour version. The silhouette adds to the mystery of the stranger angling.

One of my favourite places to visit in Caernarfon on a sunny evening. The castle's good too.

Bridge over the outflow of the Afon Glaslyn from Llyn Dinas, Gwynedd, North Wales

I have been trying to shoot this type of image for some time. It hasn't quite come out the way I wanted it to. The water misting over the rocks came out the way I wanted but my D7000 appears to be taking 'soft shots'. This was taken at Rhos-on-Sea near Colwyn Bay, North Wales.

Castell Y Waun yn Chirk yn ymyl Wrecsam, Gogledd Cymru. This sentence is as far as my Welsh language goes thus far but I am learning at my local college. Anyway, this castle is medieval and is under the care of The National Trust - very close to another NT property: Erddig. Rumour has it that Charles I stayed a night here during the English Civil War (1642-1649) before his execution in Whitehall, London.

TEXTURA IMPRESIONISTA (Textures by Kerstin Frank)

 

Visitando Trevelín, uno no deja de asombrarse con las historias de los pioneros que ocuparon esta región a fines del siglo XIX. Quería reflejar en una imagen la belleza de ese lugar soñado por los indígenas y los colonos galeses, que fue denominado antiguamente como el Valle Hermoso (Cwm Hyfryd en galés) y el trabajo de gente esforzada.

Trevelin es una localidad situada en la región de Patagonia Argentina, en la provincia de Chubut.Su denominación es de origen galés (en Cymraeg o galés significa: casa o pueblo del molino; tre = casa, pueblo, velin = molino ). En efecto, fue el núcleo de la colonia argentina de origen galés Valle 16 de octubre fundada oficialmente en ese día de 1888.

 

By visiting Trevelin, one does not cease to be amazed with the stories of the pioneers who occupied this region at the end of the nineteenth century. I wanted to reflect in a picture the beauty of that place dreamed by the indigenous and the Welsh settlers, which was called formerly as the Beautiful Valley (Cwm Hyfryd in Wales) and the work of people commited.

Trevelin is a town located in the Patagonia region of Argentina, in the province of Chubut.His name is of Welsh origin (in, or Wales means: home or mill town; tre = house, people, Velin = mill ). In effect, was the core of the colony of Welsh origin argentina Valley OCTOBER 16 officially founded on this day in 1888.

 

The cattle are waiting. It's time for them to move back down the valley,

to greener grass and less severe weather.

In the distance is Mynydd Mawr which is sometimes referred to as the 'elephant mountain' because of its shape when viewed from a particular angle. Behind Mynydd Mawr lies the mighty Nantlle Ridge which, I have heard, is one of the best places to hike in Snowdonia - unfortunately one of the ridges may be to exposed for me to walk across. Thankfully there is no such concern for hiking the Ranger Path of Snowdon which is accessible to most walkers.

Fel oeddwn yn gadael, mi fuais digon ffodus i ddal y haul yn disgleirio drwy agoriad uchaf gwyneb yr hen felin.

 

As I was leaving, I was fortunate enough to catch the sun's descent through the top opening on the face of the old mill.

‘Sven’s House at Llanddwyn’

A good flickr contact of mine is Sven Loach. He’s ‘Down South’, in London, whereas I’m ‘Up North’ here on Anglesey. His pictures are scenes of London. Wether an urban landscape or a street candid, they are always interesting and tell a story, often with a wry and subtle humour. If you have the time, have a wander through his stream.

So, this picture shows his ideal ‘getaway’ in North Wales. Somewhere to stay when he wants to get away from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of urban life. (In need of a little t.l.c., Sven, so bring a paint brush)

South Stack (Welsh: Ynys Lawd) is an island situated just off Holy Island on the northwest coast of Anglesey.

I have noticed that the subject of many of my recent photos has been mountains; unfortunately most of them have been from ground level. I believe I am subconsciously pining to get hiking again - I hope to post images from high altitudes again pretty soon. This shot was taken in Llanberis at the foot of the disused Dinorwic Quarry.

For top pics: 'Minimalistic long-exposure landscapes'. Some info for you - f20, iso 100, 15 second exposure at dawn. The sun rose just above the headland. All yours...thanks.

 

Original comment was: Foreground interest? Not today - how about 'Stand in the sea and take the shot' interest.

Worth it? What do you think :)

December diary theme: a few of my favorite things. Anyone who has watched my photostreams over time will have seen sunrise & sunset in the greenhouse and its rosebay willow herbs [really two of my favourite things]

 

the school holiday flower...starts to burst into flower as the holidays approach and then is fluffing seed for the return in spetember!

When I was a child I could see a rural red telephone box with a bank of rosebay willow herb above it.

A painted entrance gate to someone's private drive. Needless to say the person who had parked in front of it clearly didn't have their native tongue depicted here.

We didn't travel onto Bardsey Island but instead admired it from the tip of the peninsula. We were expecting a bright sunny day for our hike but it was overcast from the time we arrived until the early evening. However, by the time we arrived back at our B&B at Rhiw the sun had come out so we jumped back into the car and took a few shots from the top of Mynydd Mawr in Aberdaron.

Following on from my image of South Stack with it's guillemots we have an image of Ellin's Tower complete with guillemots. All I did to achieve this change from lighthouse to tower was a 45 degree step to my left.

View of the North Wall of Cardiff Castle. For those of you not familiar with Cardiff, this setting is only a two minute walk from the main shopping streets, you gotta love it here!

Shot from Llyn Tegid (Bala lake) in Snowdonia, North Wales. Just passing on my way to Dolgellau and took the opportunity to grab a couple of shots.

A splendid view can be had of Castell Dinas Bran and over Llangollen from the top of Trevor Rocks.

Heidelbeeren sind eine beliebte Beerensorte für die menschliche Ernährung. Sie lassen sich sowohl frisch verzehren als auch in der Küche verwerten. Sie färben aufgrund der enthaltenen Anthocyane beim Verzehr den Mund und die Zähne rot bis blau. Anthocyane in der Heidelbeere sind auch für ihre antioxidativen und entzündungshemmenden Eigenschaften verantwortlich.

I didn't want to take the shot from this angle - it is the most popular and I think overused - however it is a beautiful site. This is the bridge and tea rooms at Llanrwst which is around four miles from the beautiful Betws y Coed in Snowdonia. The leaves on the tea room turn red in the autumn and increase the overall beauty of the image.

Built to cater for the large influx of visitors,from Victorian times onwards...the original parish church,St.Michaels,was too small for this task...even though the population remains small,at about 600:

St.Michaels was the original Betws-y-Coed....in English,The Prayer House in the Wood.

A PICTURE OF THAT TO BE UPLOADED LATER...

"Come into this church. Leave aside your worries and fears. Leave all to God and trust in His unfailing love. Know that heartfelt prayers for all mankind are daily offered humbly and in faith and knowing, go your way in peace"

The idea for this picture came about after looking looking at caeciliametella’s photostream.

I find her use of strong colours, patterns, lines, shapes and abstracted forms to be constantly different, interesting and inspiring :))

Please click and enjoy her work.

Sliding - I have my RAW set up for my preferences. I played around with the white balance to get these blues. 'Clarity' slider always pushed well over on my pictures. In elements - I combined two images to compensate for differences in exposure between sea and sky. Cropped and straightened to get the square crop. Lasso tool to select the water area, and an adjustment layer to tweak the levels. Unsharp mask to finish.

 

HSS! My first contribution to the group :)
