Trees In Bute Park

Although most visitors to Bute Park in Cardiff may only really notice the wide open spaces of the playing fields, or the gorsedd stones left by a previous eisteddfod, it is the trees where the beauty of Bute Park truly lies. As well as the arboretum (which contains some of the finest examples of trees in the UK), the playing fields are ringed with trees, casting their cool shade down onto anyone walking or cycling by who needs shelter from the sun.

Under The Trees

Hope you all had a good weekend. We’ve reached the halfway point of August, and it won’t be long now until the holiday season is over and the kids are heading back to school for the start of another academic year. And I’ll be heading back too to start teaching again after a little bit of time away to recover from my car accident. With that in mind, this week’s theme is the Week of Woodland Wallpaper. Five working days, five wallpapers of what I hope you’ll find to be wonderful woodlands to stare at whenever you’re sat in front of your computer.

This shot was taken during a walk in the woods at Gethin to the west of Merthyr Tydfil just over six years ago. I’ve no idea how I got this effect; I’ve certainly never been able to reproduce it again, but I’m glad that it happened on such a nice shot.
