Lovely photo Hugh. We’ve visited a few different parts of Wales; Anglesey, Porthmadog, Carnarvon and Hay-on-Wye. All have been incredibly beautiful. KL ❤
Good to hear that you have enjoyed your visits to Wales, KL. I’m fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the UK. We’re travelling up to the Snowdonia National Park at the end of the month, which I’m looking forward to visiting. I’ll be taking plenty of photos, of course.
Very lucky ❤️. Have a wonderful trip. 😊 KL.
Well Hugh, I see a very blue sky and the sun illuminating those Welsh Valleys! In watching the “All Creatures Great & Small” TV miniseries, I like seeing the Yorkshire Dales and all those rolling hills and the farms dotting the landscape. I am always late to this party, but I am going to share my link of a Cormorant bathing in a man-made lake at Heritage Park.
Is it the new series of All Creatures Great & Small that you are referring to, Linda? The show was originally made in the 1980s, but a new version came out a few years ago, which is just as good.
Thank you for your link.
Yes, the new series Hugh, which will soon be in season three for you – our season three will be in January 2023. I also saw the original series, plus have read most of the books. As an animal lover, I’ve enjoyed the series very much. I came here in the middle of my work day to give my condolences to you on the passing of Queen Elizabeth. I feel sad about it, having grown up in Canada and I am still a Canadian citizen. I am thinking of that sweet video you sent to me of the Queen and Paddington Bear having tea during her Jubilee Celebration.
Yes, a sombre day with her passing, Linda. But we shall celebrate her life. She worked and gave us her duty right up to the very end. The world will be sadder without her, but we also look forward to new beginnings with our new King. I did think about stopping publishing posts during this tragic time, but I’ve heard it said that she wanted all our lives to carry on as usual after she passed. And I shall do what she requested.
I watched a lot of retrospectives on her life yesterday Hugh. She was a remarkable woman and the only Monarch most people knew. I will watch with interest from afar as to King Charles III. Did you see the brief Tweet by Paddington Bear on the Queen’s passing? It was sweet and to the point. I am sure her beloved Corgis are already feeling the loss. Stay calm and carry on will be in everyone’s mind as you get through the next 12 days and beyond.
I think I spotted a few unicorns! They are Welsh right?
Absolulty! And they are the makers of welsh Chocolate.
Makes me want to go there, tomorrow! (Or whenever the sun is shining next).
Hopefully, you’ll be able to make it down to the valleys one day, Paul. I’m lucky in that I live in a beautiful part of the world.
I don’t live far from The Lake District and The Peak District which are both beautiful, but I’m sure I’ll make it to the valleys one day.
This reminds me of scenes in South Africa as well. Open landscape, valleys, and green and love the blue sky and clouds .
Thank you, Esme.
I love all the shadows and textures in this image, Hugh! I’ve seen similar scenes like this east of Sacramento going toward the Sierra Nevada foothills and in the more open areas of Eastern Washington. Gorgeous!
We are so lucky to live not far from the Welsh valleys, Terri. It’s a beautiful place all year round, although the roads during the snowy winter can be terrifying. The temperature is usually a good 10 degrees colder too.
lovely photo, Hugh 🙂
Thank you, Ladylee.
Looks very similar to southeastern Utah, except it was a tad dryer Theresa couple of days ago.
I’ve just seen your tweet, Liesbet. I agree they look very similar, although the Welsh Valleys tend to be much greener because we get so much rain (even during the summer drought).
Cool, with some bonus clouds!
We always have clouds in the sky in Wales. They help block the sun and keep it cool.
Not in the Central Valley of California! In the summer, they’re mostly gone!
