This is a new gallery for 2003 of pictures taken in the UK - to which I'll add specifically photographs of my favourite haunts, starting with a bright winter's day in Llandudno.

Click on a thumbnail for a larger view of the photograph.


Llandudno promenade from Gloddaeth Street junction.

The Little Orme from Gloddaeth Street junction.

The Great Orme from Llandudno Pier

Mid February 2003 on Llandudno Pier - 5 degrees but the sun is shining.

Looking along the pier towards the promenade.

August 2002. It may have been busier in the summer, but look at that sky.

A collection of sailing dinghies gathered for one of the regular international yacht club meetings.

A popular tourist bus service. The Little Orme from the pier

Promenade from the pier.

This tiny thumbnail hides a panoramic view of Llandudno promenade.

Low tide

Say it with flowers? Colwyn Bay towards Liverpool. Colywn Bay towards Llandudno
You can't beat an old Roller. The beach at low tide ... ... and again ...
... and again. The pier. Llanberis - Snowdonia
Another beauty spot in Snowdonia July 2006 and this is the first rain we have seen since March (though I don't suppose the locals hereabouts can say the same) A wider view of that storm.
Difficult to spot through the haze in this picture but even the view to sea is marred with windmills. Mostyn Street Mostyn Street again
Llandudno's Holy Trinity Church The Great Orme, popular with climbers Goldfinches on the Great Orme
Early evening on the promenade ... ... deserted in late April 2007 Archaeological site of the stone age copper mines on the Great Orme
More mine workings ... ... and one of the tunnels ... ... and another.
The pier at low tide    

Colwyn Bay

Colwyn Bay towards Rhos on Sea The beach at Colwyn Bay ... ... and again

Harlech Castle

The magnificent castle at Harlech The castle entrance Looking out from the battlements ...
 ...again ... ... and again ... ... and again.


One of the longest piers in Britain has now been restored Its still a couple of miles short at low tide however.   Now that's what you call a beach
The long walk back. Almost there. On a clear day you can see the Blackpool Tower from here. No sign of the sea, but there is a lake on the right.
To Liverpool .... eventually. The sea is there ... really.  

Whitby, Filey & Bridlington

Whitby Abbey Whitby Harbour entrance Whitby - The River Esk
River Esk towards the sea. August 4th 2003 and 29°C Hundreds of holidaymakers take to the beach at Whitby This replica of Captain Cook's ship "HM Bark Endeavour" is a popular tourist attraction.
The Whitby Harbour lighthouse The beautiful quiet beach at Filey Filey beach looking south
Bridlington beach north of the busy harbour Bridlington harbour wall It's been a long day - time for a cup of tea from the flask before we hit the motorway.


The prestigious Eden Project near St. Austell and the reason for my visit to the area. The coastal path From Lands End to Sennen Cove. If you are wondering why this beautiful beach is deserted, then you should see the car park charges.
That beach may be deserted but there are a few clowns surfing! The beach at Looe Looe Harbour
Looe again. Hell's Mouth A pleasant oasis from the grasping nature of the county - Tregarton Park camp site near Mevagissey
The sign says it all. Sheltering from the weather near Bedruthen Steps - the car park for which, incidentally, was locked. Escape to Devon and the tranquillity of Dartmoor where there are no car park charges and no wheel clampers. There's even an honesty box at the visitor centre. You wouldn't find that in Cornwall.
