Sheffield Winter Garden Fountain

Sheffield Winter Garden Fountain

This small, ornate water fountain was found in Sheffield Winter Garden, one of the largest temperate glasshouses to be built in the UK in the last 100 years. Although I was only in there for a very short time I could see that there was a lot to explore and photograph, both in terms of the 2000 plants from all around the world and the outside of the glasshouse, which is equally interesting to me.

Floral Garden on Filey Coast

Floral Garden on Filey Coast

Walking down a fairly step road from the Tesco car park to the beach, looking over a high wall I saw this scene and my first reaction was it was time to get my camera out. Just as I put my camera to my eye a small child started playing / walking right in the middle of the picture, so I had to wait a couple of minutes for him to move into a less obvious part of the garden. Big thanks go out to Ciaran for recommending a trip to the town of Filey.

Roman Forum Garden

Roman Forum Garden

On a guided tour of the Roman Forum I noticed this lovely spot out of the corner of my eye and although I couldn’t wait around for the people to move out of the picture, I still thought it was worth sharing. I like the two symmetrical buildings which are surrounded by dozens of orange trees.

Natura Sun Apartments Swimming Pool

Natura Sun Apartments Swimming Pool

I was fortunate enough to enjoy a ten night stay at the Natura Sun Apartments in the Algarve area of Portugal last month. This was the view from the balcony from one of the first floor apartments looking down on the swimming pool. In the foreground you can see the showers and just behind the bridge in the background there is a small children’s pool. If any readers are looking for nice self-catering accommodation around Albufeira I can recommend the Natura Sun Apartments.
