Swing ride at Liseberg Amusement Park

Swing ride at Liseberg Amusement Park

Slänggungan or Wave Swinger is a fairground ride. I enjoyed the challenge of photographing a lot more than I would have done riding it. If you see one of these carousels and have a camera try a capture it. It’s tricky to get the sense of movement without making everything too blurred. Visiting friends in Gothenburg I wasn’t expecting to go to an amusement park. They had booked for us to go to a wonderful all you can eat restaurant which was awesome. After eating way to much we went for a walk around the park.

German Church in Gothenburg

German Church in Gothenburg

Christinae Church or German Church is in the centre of Gothenburg in Sweden. There has been a church here since 1623 for the growing German and Dutch congregation. The one we see today was the third church here, built in 1779. I didn’t go inside the church but I did spend quite a bit of time on the bridge with the pink flowers on it. There is a cafe on the bridge which made a great coffee and had some wonderful Swedish sweet treats to eat.

Snowdonia National Park landscape

Snowdonia National Park landscape

Heading back down from Snowdon’s Summit. This was the landscape we had walked up through and were about to walk back down. Glaslyn (Welsh for Blue Lake) is in the middle of the image. The much larger lake in the background in Llyn Llydaw (from the Welsh meaning Brittany lake). In framing this photograph I was keen to include the path we were walking along. Coming into left side of the picture is the Pyg Track which continues all the way to the other side of Llyn Llydaw. You can see the Miners Track which breaks off and goes right down to the lake side of both of these natural lakes.

Red door at Beaumaris Sea Front

Red door at Beaumaris Sea Front

Walking around the small Welsh town of Beaumaris was fantastic. There’s charming cottages, buildings and back streets. There’s even the large Beaumaris Castle. This bridge red door caught my eye and I couldn’t walk past it without taking a picture. I’m not sure what the couple behind the right side window thought or if they even noticed me. I didn’t see them until I edited the photograph once I got back home.

South Stack Lighthouse

South Stack Lighthouse

Off the north west coast of Wales is the island of Anglesey. Off the coast of Anglesey is the much smaller Holy Island. At the far north western point you’ll see this landscape. The South Stack Lighthouse is one of my favourite in Wales, if not the whole of the UK. Built in 1809 you can see why ships needed warning of the dangerous rocks below. This was the second or third time visiting south stack. You can walk right down to the lighthouse but I haven’t done this yet. I’d be good to know if the inside is open and if they let people go to the top of the light.
