Freezin’ February

Well, the Beast from the East is approaching, apparently, but that’s nothing that unusual for us here in the Welsh Borders. We get snow quite frequently here – Church Stretton isn’t nicknamed Little Switzerland for nothing, you know!

Still, I missed Shefali’s use of my photo on last night’s late evening broadcast, but thanks to the BBC iPlayer I managed to catch up on the broadcast. It seems Shefali began her broadcast with my image … peeking through her opaque introductory slide …

Lunchtime Snapper

Having met up with friends in Much Wenlock this morning, I decided that on my way home I would stop off somewhere along Wenlock Edge to do my daily walk.

Snowless Sunshine Snapper

After all the snow we’ve had, a chance to capture some sunshine and green fields!

Stokesay Snapper Simon

Decided to stop as I was passing Stokesay Castle today, to take a photo. I thought it looked gorgeous in the early morning sunshine. Turns out it was a good idea after all, as Shefali used it on the main regional evening news broadcast.


Grey Snapper

Our grey skies seemed to be just what Rich Davies was looking for when showing Midland’s Today viewers what sort of weather we’d had today!

Snapper Simon Snaps September Sunshine


After all the rain we’ve had recently, it was nice to capture a bit of blue sky and sunshine on my walk this morning. Not sure it’s going t last, though!

Seaside Snapper

Yay! Even when I’m on holiday, I can snap a BBC WeatherWatcher photo. Here’s my piccy on the BBC Look East regional news weather broadcast.

Blue Sky Snapper

After a rather grey and miserable August day, Snapper Simon found a bit of blue sky this evening, for Shefali.

After a wet and soggy day yesterday, it was glorious to be able to get up onto Ragleth Hill this morning. Some blue skies could be spotted and it was warm in the sunshine,, but the clouds certainly looked threatening.
