Gregynog

This week’s wallpaper theme revolves around Gregynog Hall, set in the heart of Wales.

Gregynog is owned by the University of Wales, and one weekend a year, it is my privilege to spend the weekend there as a Visiting Industrialist helping Aberystwyth University’s Computer Science Department’s second year students improve their job application and interview skills. This year, I took my beloved Nikon, and managed to get a bit of time on the Sunday morning to take a few shots in the morning mist.

Bath Bath Bath

To finish this week’s theme of an evening in Bath, my final choice of the week is this window display just beside the abbey. I can’t explain why, but there’s something in this that I find warming and welcoming.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s choices. Please come back tomorrow when I’ll be publishing all 10 shots from my evening in Bath.

Staircases

I can’t count how many times I’ve walked past these during daylight hours and never given them a second glance … but in the darkness, lit only by floodlights and the overspill from windows and street lamps, I felt that these metal staircases really leapt out at me. I’ve indulged in a blue treatment of this shot to allow the focus to be on form not the varied colours.

Lamp And Leaves

During my evening in Bath last week, I was always going to be up against the clock before darkness fell. But there was still plenty to photograph once the light was gone, such as this lamp illuminating the leaves of the tree that towers over it.

The South West

As the light began to fail in Bath last week, the shops started to come to life, their window displays really starting to pop in the gloom of dusk. One of my favourites is this display of t-shirts with “The South West” in large, bold letters, and all the depth of the shop behind.

Aerial Photography by the Abbey

Last week, I spent an evening in Bath (where I work for Gradwell) out and about with my camera. Now that the clocks have gone back, darkness comes swiftly on an evening, and I had a great time unwinding from a hectic couple of months exploring this charming little city. This week, I’m going to share the best of my photos from this shoot as my desktop wallpaper choices.

Bath is famous for its Abbey and its Roman spas, which draw many tourists each year, but I was more interested this time around in the exhibition of aerial photography that was going on outside the Abbey. The hardest part was getting a shot that wasn’t full of crowds of people admiring these photos; I think this shot showing just the one person makes for a more powerful image.

Barbed Iron Bench

This was originally supposed to be Tuesday’s desktop wallpaper, but it looks like the original post never got published 🙁 So here’s a Sunday bonus wallpaper instead.

Many of the benches in Berwick upon Tweed feature the same distinctive barbed iron design on their backs. I couldn’t tell you what it is meant to symbolise – a dragon’s tail, a fish tail? If you know, please let me know!
