Daffodils Beside Brown Lenox

I recently went over to the site where the Newbridge Chainworks operated by Brown Lenox and Co, Ltd, once stood. The site is reached by a bit of a torturous route if you’re going to stick to public footpaths; one has to walk round to Pontypridd Railway Station, and then round the outside of Ynysangharad Park and cross the sliproad that goes down to the A470. And then you have to go all the way back afterwards. I’m assuming that they’ll do something to improve this if they build a supermarket on the site.

(Of course, we could still be discussing this in another 10 years time …)

But, whilst I was there, I couldn’t help but notice this wonderful spread of daffodils growing beside the road. The setting sun meant that the light was against me (I’d already used the best of the light to take some snaps of Unity, which I’ll upload soon), but I like the gritty look that the conditions ultimately gave this photo.

The Largest Glass Floor In Europe

Download the full-size picture (2048 x 1370) to use as your desktop wallpaper.

Following on from yesterday’s shot of the pub in Portsmouth Harbour, my desktop wallpaper today is another shot from the same trip around the harbour back in November 2006. Taken from ground level (if memory serves, from the boat), this is a shot looking up at what was (and possibly still is?) the largest glass floor in Europe, in the observation deck of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth Harbour.

Tomorrow’s desktop wallpaper will be the view looking down through the glass floor 🙂
