View from the top of Mount Snowden. 😊 I watched people hiking to the summit through the window of my train. πŸ“š Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales (elevation: 1,085 metres above sea level). The highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands, it is located in Snowdonia National Park, Gwynedd, North Wales. The summit can be reached by a number of paths, and by the Snowdon Mountain Railway, a rack railway opened in 1896.Β  The train which carries passengers the 4.7 miles (7.6 km) from Llanberis to the summit station, takes approximately 60 minutes to reach the top (depending on the number of sheep that decide to block the track). The summit also houses a cafe called Hafod Eryri. The cliff faces are significant, and the mountain was used by Sir Edmund Hillary in training for the 1953 ascent of Mount Everest. #cymru #wales #DiscoverCymru #VisitWales #ExploringWales #thewalescollective #genuinebritain #bestofengland #visitengland #travelworldmap #photosofbritain #prettyenglishcountryside #bestukpics #mountsnowdon #my_natural_feature #epictravels #travel_drops #travel_captures #travelshotba #capturingbritain #ukgreatshots #englishcountryside #featureyourphoto #LifeoftheUK #englandsbigpicture #traverseengland #ukscenery #yesbde #excellentbritain #snowdonmountainrailway

You cannot mention Portmeirion (Gwynedd, North Wales) without reference to 'The Prisoner,' a 17-episode British television program first broadcast in 1967. βšͺ'The Prisoner' starred, and was co-created by, Patrick McGoohan (known only as Number Six), a former government agent who abruptly resigns from his job and is then imprisoned in The Village. Despite his numerous attempts at escape, Number Six is trapped in The Village by floating, glowing "rovers," mysterious, balloonlike devices that capture those who try to regain their freedom. The final episode, prophetically named 'Fall Out,' aired on February 01, 1968, and resulted in bafflement and anger among the show's viewership to such an extent that McGoohan (reportedly) had to leave the country and go "into hiding" for a few days as dissatisfied viewers stormed his house. The finale intentionally avoided answering any mysteries regarding the origins of The Village, its intentions for Number Six or his reasons for resigning. McGoohan also wrote and directed several episodes and served as executive producer. #cymru #wales #DiscoverCymru #VisitWales #ExploringWales #thewalescollective #genuinebritain #bestofengland #visitengland #historicengland #photosofbritain #prettyenglishcountryside #bestukpics #my_natural_feature #britishseaside #britishseasides #travelshotba #capturingbritain #ukgreatshots #englishcountryside #featureyourphoto #LifeoftheUK #englandsbigpicture #traverseengland #ukscenery #yesbde #excellentbritain #portmeirion #northwales #bestunitedkingdom

Have a good start to the week. Here’s a picture from the beautiful Widemouth beach from a few weeks ago.
- I recently went @rockandsouladventures weekend where I did rock climbing, abseiling, surfing, and yoga in the beautiful North Devon πŸ™πŸ„β€β™€οΈ πŸ§—β€β™‚οΈ None of my friends and family could come on the adventure with me, so I decided to go by myself! πŸ’β€β™€οΈ Attending by myself did not matter as I met the most amazing people!!! ❀️ We can miss out on many opportunities in life because we fear the unknown and trying new things and to do things by ourselves. Every time I've taken the plunge and tried something new and adventured by myself, I've always had the best experiences and created the best memories. Moreover, I've met the best people along the way! - My advice to anyone, no matter what your circumstances are: single, in a relationship, parent, student, retired is to go on an adventure by yourself or a retreat- they're so many that cater for all different types of sports, hobbies, and health. You'll grow as a person, create memories and meet new people who you'll be friends with for a very long time! ⭐️ - What is your next adventure? #wemovemountains #amateurohotographer #surflifeuk #freeexercises #simpleashannah #walklifebalance #womenwalking #womenexplorers #whynotadventure #bestukpics #excellentbritain #outdoorpicture #surfuk #nofearenergy #trysomethingnewnow #nextadventureplease #adventurewomen #northdevonliving #newhobbyinthemaking #letsadventurebegin #firstyogaclass #firstsurf #surfuk #climbuk #abseiluk #baggypoint #devonadventures #northdevoncoast
York Minster. The present building was built between 1230 and 1472. Due to numerous fires, fixes and restorations, the Minster has been examined extensively.

Woken this morning with lovely autumnal sunshine streaming through the windows. I would much rather be back on a beach in Cornwall though πŸ– I’m off to watch my football team play this afternoon, anyone got any trips planned?
Here's an interesting idea: create an Italian-style village in the middle of Wales. Well, not the middle, exactly, since Portmeirion is actually in North Wales. But, an interesting idea nevertheless.πŸ“š The Central Plaza, Portmeirion, Gwynedd, North Wales. Designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village, Portmeirion incorporates fragments of demolished buildings, and includes works by a number ofΒ  architects. #cymru #DiscoverCymru #VisitWales #ExploringWales #thewalescollective #genuinebritain #bestofengland #travelworldmap #historicengland #photosofbritain #prettyenglishcountryside #bestukpics #my_natural_feature #britishseaside #visitengland #britishseasides Β #travelshots Β  #travelshotba #capturingbritain #ukgreatshots #englishcountryside #featureyourphoto #LifeoftheUK #englandsbigpicture #traverseengland #featureyourphoto #ukscenery #yesbde #excellentbritain #portmeirion #northwales
I have had a long love affair with tall ships and steam locomotives. I snapped this on my way back from Portmerion, and am hoping someone can identify it. 😊 Thank you to @matt.j.scholfield for identitying the locomotive as the Merddin Emrys and @bown2157 for the information that it is a Fairlie Patent locomotive owned by the Ffesiniog Railway. According to James, they own three of these rare double boilers. πŸ“š Merddin Emrys was built in 1879 to the design of George Percival Spooner and has spent its entire working life on the Festiniog Railway. Merddin Emrys is named after a legendary Welsh wizard who later became the basis for the wizard Merlin of Arthurian legend. #cymru #wales #ffestiniogandwelshhighlandrailway #VisitWales #ExploringWales #thewalescollective #genuinebritain #bestofengland #visitengland #travelworldmap #photosofbritain #prettyenglishcountryside #bestukpics #my_natural_feature #epictravels #travel_drops #travel_captures Β  #travelshots Β  #travelshotba #capturingbritain #ukgreatshots #englishcountryside #steamlocomotive #LifeoftheUK #englandsbigpicture #traverseengland #welshrailways #ukscenery #yesbde #excellentbritain

View of Westminster Abbey (West Towers) from the Jewel Tower. πŸ“š The Jewel Tower, a three-storey, crenallated stone building, was built between 1365 and 1366 to house the personal treasure of Edward III. It occupied a secluded part of the royal Palace of Westminster and was protected by a moat linked to the River Thames. The tower continued to be used for storing the monarch's treasure and personal possessions until 1512, when a fire in the palace caused Henry VIII to relocate his court to Whitehall. It is one of the few buildings from the medieval Palace of Westminster to survive the fire of 1834. (The only other significant medieval structures to survive the 1834 fire: Westminster Hall.) #bestofengland #bestukpics #traverseengland #britainstalent Β  #mywayinlondon #secretlondon #excellentbritain #mybestcityshots #capturingbritain #englandsbigpicture #bestunitedkingdom #mybritainwithlove #londonvisitof #londonl #londonthroughmycam #londonamazingcity #yourlondonadventure #itssolondon #london4all #londoncityworld #londonvibes #yourlondon #wonderlustlondon #londonforless #guesswherelondon #mywayinlondon #secretlondon #london4you #englishheritagesite #jeweltower #westminsterabbey

St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London. πŸ“šThere has been a church on the site since the medieval period. The earliest surviving record of the church is from 1222, (a dispute between the Abbot of Westminster and the Bishop of London as to who had control over it). In 1542, Henry VIII rebuilt the church to keep plague victims in the area from having to pass through his Palace of Whitehall. At this time, it was literally "in the fields" between the cities of Westminster and London. The present building was constructed in a Neoclassical design by James Gibbs between 1722–1726. #bestofengland #bestukpics #traverseengland #britainstalent Β  #lovegreatbritain #mywayinlondon #secretlondon #excellentbritain #mybestcityshots #capturingbritain #englandsbigpicture #bestunitedkingdom #mybritainwithlove #facesoflondon #londonvisitof #londonl #londonthroughmycam #londonamazingcity #yourlondonadventure #itssolondon #london4all #londoncityworld #londonvibes #yourlondon #wonderlustlondon #londonforless #guesswherelondon #mywayinlondon #secretlondon #london4you

Regrann from @jackiebarnes9218 - Penrhyn Castle, Llandygai, Bangor, Gwynedd, North Wales. A small corner of the castle, which I thought interesting because of the Snowdonia mountains in the background and the vines growing on the wall. πŸ“šPenrhyn Castle is a country house, in the form of a Norman castle. Originally a medieval fortified manor house, it was reconstructed in the 1780s. The present building was created between 1822 and 1837 to designs by Thomas Hopper, who expanded and transformed the building beyond recognition.πŸ“š Penrhyn is one of the most admired 19th century mock castles built in the UK. It stretches over 600 feet from the donjon (which contains family rooms) through the main block built around the earlier house, to the service wing and the stables. The castle is owned by the National Trust. #bestofengland #createandcapture #my_natural_feature #travel_drops #travel_captures #ntwales #featureyourphoto #ukscenery #walkinguk #travelawayeurope #naturalengland #britainstalent #mybritain #visitengland #ukpotd #scenicbritain #lovegreatbritain #photosofbritain #bestukpics #capturingbritain #ukgreatshots #traverseengland #yesbde #excellentbritain #chasingcastles #nationaltrust #penrhyncastle #gwynedd #bangor #genuinebritain

From our walk around Tintagel. Merlin's cove with an ND filter and a longer exposure to smooth out the water and the clouds. I was unsure which one of two to post to put a vote on my story. This won by a substantial amount
So this summer was the hottest on record β˜€οΈ It certainly made for some incredible images and I don’t mind that autumn πŸ‚ is on its way because of all the lovely weather that we had. This is another of that stunning sunset that we had on Widemouth Beach a week or so ago.
The Valley of the Rocks! I’ve just come back from Exmoor and whilst down there I visited the valley of the Rocks which was suggested by @keanudrone (give him a follow!) This coast line was spectacular to photograph! _____________________________________________________________ Camera: Sony A7III Lens: Sigma 10-20mm with metabones IV canon to Sony Settings: 12mm - f/14 - 1/40s - ISO 100 _____________________________________________________________ #exmoor #exmoormagazine ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
