Who doesn’t like a hollow tree?
As my daughter commented the shape here is reminiscent of a shape made by a cartoon character crashing through a wall
This photo was taken looking up from the rock fall where this [url=http://www.blipfoto.com/entry/1621807]pond is formed[/url]. I guess the tree must have been there prior to the rock slip and has carried on growing, rather precariously.
a disused stable and barn near us, with some imposing gates and a kinda prisoner of war feel to it
The Clash and Class War? I wonder how long this graffiti has been in place. Mind you, it seems quite apposite in today’s climate.
Apparently Doctor Who has been hit by the recession and has had to downsize the Tardis (only on the outside)
I risked life and limb for this shot. Actually there is a pedestrian crossing and I disobeyed the ‘cross quickly’ instruction to take this.
Not a film quote this time, but a song lyric. And shame on you if you don’t know it.
This is known as the iron bridge and used to be the only crossing over the Taff for about 8 miles. The [url=http://dicmortimer.wordpress.com/2011/10/10/to-ton/]original iron bridge was swept away in 1877[/url] and this one is steel.
It’s a little known fact that all Professors have a portcullis and draw bridge, in order to keep out the learning hordes
[url=http://www.castlewales.com/coch.html]Castell Coch[/url] is a ‘faux’ castle, or a folly, built to resemble medieval castles in the 1870s by the Marquess of Bute. I guess as time progresses there won’t be much distinction between it being a real castle and a mock one.
I’ll probably do a few shots from the vantage point. I like to think of it as ‘our castle’.
In winter these rows of vines at Gelynis Farm remind me of the rows of crosses on Normandy beach memorials.
