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…
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.
A selection of my Snapper Simon appearances on the BBC. 😜
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…
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…
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!
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.
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.
It may say 30th June on the calendar, but it hasn’t felt like June for nearly a week now. And BBC Midland’s Today weather presenter Rebecca Wood commented how in Church Stretton the hills have been obliterated by low cloud!
I caught some breaks in the clouds above Ludlow town centre, while out stretching my legs at lunchtime today.
Even drizzly walks have their highlights 😝
When I go away to the Lake District, I usually wake up early on the first morning (excitement!). And this time was no different, something the early dawn chorus no doubt assisted with. So, despite it being 5am, I got up and ventured outside.
It was a tad blowy up the top of Ragleth Hill today, something you can judge for yourself here: But as you can see, there were blue skies, so I took a photo too. I tried uploading it to the BBC WeatherWatchers website, but couldn’t because for some strange reason there was no 4G signal…
Well, I wasn’t the only one out snapping photos in the glorious sunshine today but, and I know I might be slightly biased here, I think she saved the best until last 😝 (see video below)
Snow and fog in one photo today. Well, it was probably low cloud, rather than fog. But it was flippin’ freezin’ up on the top of Ragleth Hill today. Still, the fact that Midlands Today liked the photo enough to use it, shows it was worth the climb!
Woke up to a light dusting of snow and fog this morning. Thought I’d head up Ragleth Hill, just in case I could climb above the fog. Didn’t. 😞 But I did take this photo and uploaded it to the BBC WeatherWatchers website. An hour later Matt Taylor was using it on the BBC News…
The weather yesterday was horrendous, resulting in a lot of flooding across Shropshire today. People said I was mad to go out on my daily walk, but I think Shefali was pleased I did 😉 The photo does sum up the day’s weather.
Shefali liked my photo of Ape Dale, near Church Stretton that I snapped today, while out on my walk.
Lovely to see Shefali using my October sunshine image on the lunchtime regional news programme today. (and it also appeared on the BBC Shropshire news website).
BBC Midland’s Today liked my photo of the Stretton Hill’s missing summits today. (Felt like November, not September!)
Snapped again on the regional weather forecast!
BBC Midlands Today did a big feature on the Church Stretton Arts Festival today, and then Shefali did the weather and used one of my WeatherWatcher photos, taken on my walk earlier today. A good day for Church Stretton publicity, I think.
It’s August! Hence why I was able to snap the fog this morning. At least Midlands Today liked it!
Well, the forecast for today was one of dryness and sunshine, so I took the opportunity to tackle one of the routes I need to do for Country Walking magazine. Having climbed out of the Clun Valley, along Offa’s Dyke, I needed to stop and take a breather, so whipped out my iPhone to capture…
We haven’t seen much sun so far this summer, but here’s proof we’ve seen some!
