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 […]
We haven’t seen much sun so far this summer, but here’s proof we’ve seen some!
While out doing a walk for Country Walking magazine today, I snapped a photo of the Clun Valley … and by teatime it was on the telly 😉
Giant daffodils dwarf Shefali!
Snapped at 9am, on the BBC1 One o’clock news national weather forecast at 1.30pm.
Not much cloud over South Shropshire for the Midland’s Today roadshow at Craven Arms today.
Not only did my photo get used in the weather forecast today … … but I got an honourable mention too!
I’ve lost part of my name! I’m just Simon here, not Snapper Simon 😉
It was worth waiting until the clouds started burning off before I did my walk this morning. Otherwise Midlands Today might not have used this!
More snowy weather this morning, which meant Snapper Simon nipped out to take a photo … in time for Shefali to use it on her lunchtime broadcast … … and then she used a different one in the evening broadcast … And I had to […]
I think today’s snow has taken a few by surprise. It wasn’t a lot, but it was enough to make an impact on some photos, so I uploaded one to my BBC WeatherWatchers account. Then I was sitting eating my lunch, watching the BBC’s One […]
Shefali used one of my WeatherWatcher photos today to show that while Staffordshire had lots of snow, Shropshire had all the sunshine.
Storm Gertrude is coming … so here’s my photo of the calm before Getrude, taken from Ragleth Hill today, and used on BBC Midlands Today.
Sunshine! The low mist took a while to clear, but with such clear blue skies I had to climb up onto Ragleth Hill yesterday. The stillness in the air was wonderful, and there was strength in the heat of the sun, even though it’s only […]
It’s going to be another cold night, so BBC Midlands Today used my WeatherWatcher photo taken earlier on my walk today of the Burway closed due to snow and ice.
I’ve just found out that Shefali Oza used another of my BBC WeatherWatchers photos on the regional weather forecast last night. That’s two images within a week. We must have good weather round here! (Mind you, when I moved to Shropshire, people always said we’d […]
It’s been an interesting few days since the start of the New Year. We’ve had several problems with our phone line. Voice calls haven’t been possible, nor have we had access to the Internet. It’s always interesting having to adjust to a different way of […]
