Porthmadog

 

A harbour town situated on the Glaslyn Estuary, Porthmadog is rich in maritime history and is an excellent base for touring the surrounding area. It has a number craft shops and restaurants. The town was named after W.A. Maddocks whose ambitious "Cob" embankment scheme led to the town's name, which translates as "Madog's Port". In times gone by, it was a vital, busy shipping port for the international slate trade, brought down from Blaenau Ffestiniog. The maritime history depicts its proud past.

 

Greetings. Wishing everyone a happy day. Thank you for your kind comments and support.

Taken at Loch Leven last year. For my foreign visitors, I've added notes. Further to the notes, let me also explain that:

 

1) Great Britain is the land mass made up of Scotland,England and Wales.

2) The United Kingdom is actually properly called "The United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland", which clearly doesn't need any further explanation.

As much as I love Provence and would have loved to visit it again this year during Lavender time, my busy schedule didnt allow that, so I at least made sure I finally visited lavender fields in UK, unfortunately I was too early as the spring was too long and harsh..

 

Unfortunately I was treated only with cloudless skies, so not typical for UK !! but hey the weather for few weeks was nothing close to being typical, funnily enough people have been posting photos of temperatures reaching 29C or 30C, I thought that was really funny, having had temperatures near to 60C in Kuwait !!

Clachan Bridge - Single-arched, hump-backed, masonry bridge. Also called "Bridge Over the Atlantic". It links the the Scottish mainland to the island of Seil. This photo was photographed by balleyer.

My first shot of the london eye using my first second hand camera bought a week earlier before taking this shot! the lovely Nikon V1.

Tras pasar la mañana en Clapham Jt. volvimos a London Victoria para comer y acercarnos al encuadre que tenía pensado para cazar el "Belmond British Pullman" de vuelta a London Victoria. Tras un buen rato esperando y rezando porque no se nos cruzara ninguno de los cientos de automotores que por allí pasan cada hora, por fín hizo su aparición la enorme 35028 "Clan Line", una Merchant Navy 4-6-2 class reconstruida en 1960, con la bonita composición de coches Pullman y por suerte sin ninguna unidad en las vías paralelas que tapase el tren.

The Parade Gardens in the City of Bath is a wonderful place to spend a lunch hour. The park was full of people this sunny day in the United Kingdom.

  

Después de fotografiar tres trenes a la salida de Goathland, volvimos a la estación para coger el siguiente tren histórico a Grosmont, la estación colateral. Allí visitamos el primer túnel ferroviario y el taller de la asociación que mantiene el ferrocarril, desde donde fuimos andando hasta un paso superior en medio de la campiña donde disfrutar del paso de los trenes.

 

En la imagen la Black Five 44806 se esfuerza en subir un tren Pullman entre las estaciones de Grosmont y Goathland (donde se encuentra la mayor pendiente de todos los ferrocarriles históricos ingleses) durante una bonita tarde soleada en el North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
