Even when I’m holiday, I’m still looking for great BBC WeatherWatcher photos, and last week, while on holiday in the Lake District, two of my images were used.
The first was bright an early on the Sunday morning, at 7.14am (I’m not normally up that early on a Sunday, but it was the first full day of my holiday and I was raring to go!). Now, I didn’t see this originally, because I was still outside in the garden of my self-catering holiday accommodation taking more photos. Thankfully, a friend got in touch via social media and brought it to my attention.
I thought that cloud over Ludlow looked menacing! It seems Shefali thought so too. It does look reminiscent of April shower clouds. Perhaps we have turned a seasonal corner. Although, there are still rumours of snow over the Easter weekend. Proof that we certainly get a lot of weather here in the Welsh Borders!
Here in the Welsh Borders we’ve still got some snow hanging about. If you look carefully on this BBC WeatherWatcher photo, you’ll see a smidgen of white in the top right on the Long Mynd.

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 …
26th February 2018 – BBC 1 Midlands Today – Late Evening broadcast
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.
What Wenlock Edge does well is tantalising views. New trees, mainly ash and some silver birch, are thriving, and the good paths along the edge weave their way between them, which means that the vista across west Shropshire is good, but it doesn’t quite work as a photograph (your photo looks more like a view with a barcode in front of it!)
After all the snow we’ve had, a chance to capture some sunshine and green fields!
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.
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!
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!
