Hello
AT the end of the month I am going to the west country for a few days. Was wondering if anyone got any ideas for some good shots? I am going to Blists hill for 1 day but thinking of going to snowdonia or somewhere after that. But open to ideas?
Thankyou
Emma

I hate to bring this up but Snowdonia isn't actually in the West Country.

tell that to the Welsh

Wales is part of the UK as is Scotland , but both are countries in their own right.

I was always under the impression that Wales was a Principality of England and not a country in its own right, hence the reason the Welsh Flag is not included in the Union Flag???

Anyway, I say give them and the Scots their total independance. Then English people wouldn't have to subsidise their free prescriptions

Sorry

Shrewsbury would be worth a visit, long time since I've been though.

If you're going to Blists Hill then you will be in Ironbridge, Shropshire. Which is where I live, and unfortunately it isn't part of Wales no matter how hard I try to claim it for the homeland! :

If that's your destination then you're in for a treat. It's a world class museum in a World Heritage Site, and the whole area is a photographers dream - or nightmare? There is just so much to see and do here.

The last one is my local pub, run by a great French chef so the food is first class.

When you get to Snowdonia, perhaps make a point of visiting Portmeirion, the place where "The Prisoner" and countless other TV and film productions were filmed.

definitely a full day of photo possibilities, with new visual treats at every turn.
Best regards, John

Visit Snailbeach Leadmine remains and the rock formations called the Stiperstones. The Swallow Falls, The Pistel Ryader Falls, Snowdon Mountain Railway, The Festiniog railway.
As John says, Portmerion is a top photographic location, with italianate buildings and facades, gardens, woodland walks and beaches. Be seeing you.
Friendly Regards
Graham
