StillWalks Featured Video

This weeks featured StillWalks video is from a place I am looking forward to seeing over Easter. I hope the weather is good – although it is a place that is wonderful in any weather conditions!

You can watch it on your computer, mobile or HDTV (via USB memory stick).

A Winter That Never Happened

We did not have Winter this year where I live – last Winter, however, was different.

Having said that, his new StillWalks video is obviously from last Winter. I have only just completed it and would like to present it as this week’s featured video before the we are completely out of the season that never happened.

This featured StillWalks video will be available on this blog all week and will then revert to a small sample version. The video features Lower Lliw Reservoir near Swansea, South Wales.

Waymarkers

The footpath, the rock and the signpost.

All are waymarkers from my point of view and if I were doing a StillWalks production of the area I have been posting about all week, I would certainly make use of objects like these in the photography for the video to help provide a sense of progression through the landscape.

The area is of course the Loughor Estuary near Llanrhidian on the Gower Peninsula and I walked in both the directions that this signpost is pointing.

Btw, I consider the word “waymarkers” to be one word (like footpath or signpost) but the computer seems to be arguing with me – stuff the computer!

This week’s featured StillWalks video is set a few weeks ahead of the current date in terms of the time of year but the flowers and activity of the birds celebrate the beautiful sunny weather of Spring with gusto and are a welcome change to the wild, wet and windy weather we had through Winter.

Hereford Cathedral

Not affected by the flooding River Wye, Hereford cathedral is still undergoing repairs.

The tree in this photo conveniently hides the scaffolding covering the main side entrance to the cathedral. I was tempted to enhance the effect of the lowering sun on the front of the building but decided in the end that it was enough like a picture postcard already!

Rising and Receding Waters

Water levels rise incredibly quickly but it can take a lot longer for them to recede.

The peak of the water level in the River Wye at Hereford was probably several days before we arrived there and as can be seen, it covered the park and playing fields nearby. We were unable to complete our walk on a circuitous route  because we were not waiting suitable shoes for the mud the flood had left. I suspect it will be some time before it is practical to play on the fields again.

After the Flood – A New StillWalks Video

This winter in the UK brought wind and rain.

Again and again and again! We may now be coming out of that wild and windy season but many people are still suffering from the effects of all that water or fallen trees. I am sorry for those people but also glad we were not included amongst them.

StillWalks featured videos are back again this week with “City River Walk – After the Flood”. The city is York, the river is the Ouse and the time is April 2012. The Ouse regularly floods as a result of rain falling higher up the course of the river. I assume that the residents and businesses situated alongside it the river bank are suitably prepared for these events and have systems in place to deal with it.

However, it is when the unexpected occurs that tried and tested systems are put to the test and this Winter they were certainly tried and tested everywhere in the UK. Some systems were satisfactory . . . others were not!
