Here in Manchester, England we had a bit of snowfall this week, so I took a bit of time off work to fly the drone over it. I managed to fly at Harsthead Pike without issue, but at Dovestones it was too windy to get the drone up unfortunately so I just took some photos instead.

It was my Birthday on the 18th of July, so on the weekend we decided to have a few days in Wales and see some more of the beautiful Welsh scenery.
We visited Bala, Porthmadog, Ffestiniog (on the train and by car), Criccieth, Ruthin and various other places in-between. On the way to Porthmadog, our first stay we called in to some fisheries we have visited before, and had lunch, we met a lovely older couple called Barry & Sue and ended up chatting for ages to them – It’s always nice to meet new people and learn about them (there was no space for them to sit when they arrived so we invited them to our table, a nice habit we have, and it has made us some great friends here and in Asia, you should try it 🙂 )
Here are a few photos and then a 9 minute video of the journey, from the train, the car, the drone and the DSLR.
I hope you enjoy the photos and video and look forward to your comments.
I was at work until this afternoon and decided to do a little gardening while the sun was shining. Imagine my surprise when I spotted a Dragonfly sat atop my now headless tulips. After a few minutes he was still there so the camera was grabbed, at this point it had my most used Sigma 18-70mm Art Lens installed, a few shots later, he’s still there, so then I ran in and grabbed my Canon 300mm Lens with IS, I cracked off some more shots and then decided to get the Manfrotto tripod and the 100mm Sigma Macro lens, these shots are of course the best. I managed to get very close to him, he flew off a few times but came back, I even got that on video but the lens was on auto-focus so messed up a bit. I have been back out to get some better video but he’s nowhere to be seen, I just hope he returns tomorrow 🙂

I thought it was about 5 years ago, but it was 7 years ago, how time flies 😮
It was taken in Haworth at a 1940’s weekend, I was walking back to the car and saw this lady leaning in the doorway, the camera was off, so i quickly fired it up and snapped this lovely candid shot. The photo got thousands of likes on Social Media but I never found out who she was to give her a copy.
Last weekend (20th May 2018) at Howarth’s 40’s weekend, I was looking for this girl, I had almost given up on the hope of finding her when whilst sat having a brew, I noticed a girl behind my parents, I was not 100% sure it was her, so asked my Dad and he said he thought it may be her too, so I asked her, and YES, it was her 🙂 WOW, what are the chances? I now would like her to see this but forgot to ask her name – bloody crazy I know :p
We had a nice drive out on Saturday with friends while the weather was great.
We went to a place we found the weekend before on the way to Wales with lovely fields of Gold (I think it’s Rapeseed?)
This is my favourite photo of the day 🙂
