Posted by Stuart Herbert on August 7th 2011 in Travel Photography Puzzlewood in the Forest of Dean is like no other woodland around With its knarled trees twisting pathways and canyons of collapsed caves it s a like something out of a fairy tale or many popular television shows We were very lucky to catch it on a bright sunny day in late April the place abuzz with children of all ages scouring the woods looking for Easter bunnies hiding out in the trees and rocks Sadly we didn t see any tree borgs or any weeping angels and definitely no Amy Pond or any mad man with a box and fish custard But we definitely had a great time and if you re ever thinking of visiting the Forest of Dean we do recommend making Puzzlewood one of the places you go to see Copyright c Stuart Herbert Blog Twitter

This week s theme features Scotland s National Museum of Flight once more It is home to a wonderful collection of aircraft both military and civilian The star attraction of the museum is undoubtably Concorde G BOAA but there s plenty of other aircraft to see and enjoy too and we certainly didn t get around all four hangars plus all of the outside exhibits in a single day To bring this week s theme to a close my wallpaper today is this shot of a set of aircraft windows from one of the planes in Hangar 2 I like the way that the light is reflecting on the windows giving the appearance that I ve photographed a toy rather than the real thing But it also turns out to be a pertinent choice for today as today is my last day with my current employer before I take flight for a new town and a new challenge I hope you ve enjoyed this week s photos from the National Museum of Flight they re amongst my favourites from our day at the museum It s a wonderful place to visit with a camera just make sure that you get there early because there s far more to see and explore than you can fit in a whole day I ll be back on Monday with a new theme for next week s wallpaper Copyright c Stuart Herbert

This week s theme is the streets of Edinburgh Scotland s capital city I ve only spent a day in Edinburgh with my camera to date but instantly fell in love It s a much older city than Cardiff with a richer history that the Scots have preserved in a way that the Welsh sadly haven t It s also a much cleaner city than London and in my experience the people are much friendlier too There is much to explore through a lens and I am looking forward to a longer stay there soon To finish off this week s photos and indeed the current theme of the streets of Edinburgh what better way to end a Friday than with a pub The Half Way House is very aptly named as it is found half way up or down depending on your starting point a huge flight of stairs that form one of the alleys in Old Town I admit I chickened out on account of my crocked knee and didn t get to find out whether the assent decent was worth it Answers on a postcard please or in the comments below I hope you ve enjoyed the last two weeks of photos from the streets of Edinburgh I ve got plenty more of these still to share with you for future weeks so look out for them when I return to posting about this enchanting city later in

    of Berwick upon Tweed and we were instantly captivated by its wonderful setting on the coast with the backdrop of Bass Rock To enter Tantallon Castle you cross this modern sturdy bridge The deep moat it crosses was part of the formidable defences against armour and siege towers but with the advent of cannon Tantallon was nowhere near as impregnable and it fell to Cromwell s army in 1651 His army s artillery did substantial damage to the castle walls and especially to the towers creating much of the ruins that you can visit today Copyright c Stuart Herbert Blog Twitter Facebook

theme is Tantallon Castle on the Scottish coastline in East Lothian just outside North Berwick We visited it in September 2010 whilst exploring the coastline north of Berwick upon Tweed and we were instantly captivated by its wonderful setting on the coast with the backdrop of Bass Rock The green stone cladding on the Mid Tower aka the Fore Tower is very unusual and really stands out against the red stone used to build the rest of the curtain wall of Tantallon Historic Scotland were part way through restoring the cladding allowing us to get a good idea of what this will look like when the work is complete Copyright c Stuart Herbert Blog Twitter Facebook Photography Merthyr Road Daily Desktop Wallpaper 25 9 Twitter If you re reading this in the RSS feed my original blog post also

summer of 2009 Mrs H and I went on an ill fated fortnight s holiday in beautiful North Wales basing ourselves just outside of Barmouth Although some of the photos I took that fortnight have featured in my desktop wallpaper series this is the first time that I ve pulled together all the shots taken on holiday by theme One of the common features of Welsh castles as apposed to English castles built to keep the Welsh in line is that they re extremely well hidden and normally very small Castell y Bere near Craig y Aderyn fits that criteria perfectly Even with a good map we had a devil of a job finding it you can drive right past it and not notice it is there even after all these years of peace between the English and the Welsh Copyright c Stuart Herbert Blog Twitter Facebook Photography
