Jubilee Tower 200

Monday, October 25th, 2010

It’s not often you get live drumming, lazer lightshows, multimedia art and fireworks on top of your local 1000 foot hill. The Moel Famau Jubilee Tower 200th anniversary celebrations where a huge success. It was wonderful to see thousands of people braving a evening cold on top of the hill to watch the Jubilee Tower 200 lightshow and fireworks. The last of the big images shows the lantern procession off the hill.

After many requests this week, I am making prints of any of the above images available for purchase as fine-art photographic C-Prints. C-Prints are very high-quality professional prints, printed with archival quality inks on archival paper (like you see in museums and galleries). Contact David for more information on sizing, framing and cost options.

A quickly grabbed shot of the post-sunset glow over Snowdon from the summit of our local peak Moel Famau this evening. Mt Snowdon is made up of the three peaks on the left of the horizon.

The Sinister Snowman

The brief sunshine through the freezing cold today reminded me of one of my favourite poems by Wallace Stevens:

One must have a mind of winter
To regard the frost and the boughs
Of the pine-trees crusted with snow;

And have been cold a long time
To behold the junipers shagged with ice,
The spruces rough in the distant glitter

Of the January sun; and not to think
Of any misery in the sound of the wind,
In the sound of a few leaves,

Which is the sound of the land
Full of the same wind
That is blowing in the same bare place
For the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.

It snowed today. Actually it really snowed today. It snows occasionally around here during winter, but not until around December or January. I think there was a wee little man that enjoyed the early snow even more than I did…
