brilliant website 🙂
It was some time ago since i visited Snowdon, i thought that some of my followers would love to see photos from there. It is great experience to walk up Snowdon, yes it takes a bit of time but it will stay with you forever.
If you planning your trip, make sure you have lot of water and some food. You may also take some cash with you as during the day there is cafe open half way up and at the top.

Mark Simms showcases his winning Photo from the People’s Photography Exhibition.
The shot below of an incredibly cute Asian Short-clawed Otter has been voted 1st place in the nature category of the People’s Photography Exhibition. It was taken at the Martin Mere Wetlands Centre in Lancashire on a bitterly cold and windy day last Christmas. The exhibition was organised by Cetra Studios as part of the 2012 Heswall Arts Festival.
I think it is fair to say that I am a very happy Otter today…..;0)

Another great Wirral based photographer
I stole Chris away from his writing again on Sunday and took him off in the quest to find autumn. We have come to the conclusion that its late, going to be wishy washy green and gold with only a hint of red. So i am just going to have to keep my eyes open, my camera ready and shoot everything that takes my eye in my quest to find the beautiful colours of autumn.
We went up to Thermopylae Pass Birkenhead, the house and land was owned by the Vyner family, for some reason they later moved the house to Royden Park, then we went on to Bidston Hill. We had incredible light on Sunday, there was a light or not so light mist in places and as the sun burnt it off it created these amazing shafts of light and if you caught it at the right angle, well…

Mark Simms shares his latest Blog feature
Built between 1842 and 1854, St George’s Hall is considered one of the finest examples of Neo-classical architecturein the world…..it is designated as Grade I listed. Scandalously it was allowed to fall into disuse and disrepair during the 1980’s, but thanks to a multi-million pound refurbishment it was re-opened in April 2007. It is now used for a variety of cultural, community, civic and corporate activities.
Without question it is one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings and stands at the heart of the city’s cultural quarter. It is certainly one of my favourites. However it does present the photographer with a bit of a problem…..its size is truly monumental. This coupled with the fact that it is surrounded by a number of other large and impressive buildings, streets, roundabouts and the general hustle and bustle of city life, makes trying to get a clean shot of the whole…

Another great post from Mark Simms
The War Memorial, which stands at the heart of Port Sunlight village, was commissioned by William Lever(later Lord Leverhulme) to commemorate those of his Sunlight Soap Factory employees who gave their lives during the Great War. It was designed and sculpted by Sir William Goscombe John and took five years to complete from 1916 to 1921.
These shots were actually taken in the Summer of 2011 – and they are just a few of a number of “old” shots that I have been meaning to share on my blog for some time. As I recall, when I took these, I was actually at a joint 60th birthday/40th wedding anniversary bash at a local hotel in Port Sunlight, but I managed to sneak out for half an hour with the camera. I’m glad I did because the late evening light was beautiful, bathing the memorial in a warm summer glow…
