That is of course a rhetorical question given I have just come back from North Wales.
I have been to some lovely countries with beautiful landscapes like the Sahara Desert or Ngorongoro in Tanzania, the Tatra Mountains in Poland, and our very own Lake District just to name a few. They all stand out in my memory for their beauty, all differing wildly but equally jaw droppingly striking.
Sadly, all the photos are in the loft buried under boxes of Christmas decorations. One day (or month) I will catalogue them all properly, or at least put them into some albums so that I can relive the memories and share them with the children who I hope will see some fantastic landscapes themselves one day.
So instead I give you North Wales :)
This was the view from our living room window.
Yes, I know. This is Porthmadog harbour and Ffestiniog behind. The only downside to this view is that you had to climb steps equivalent to a 4 story house to get to the front door. Small price to pay.
And the same mountains as seen from Borth-y-Gest with a lucky (and rare) break in the clouds.
In the park in Porthmadog, playing with the kids I happened to look up and saw a horse on the top of the hill directly behind the houses. Weird to see a horse where you would normally expect to see a cloud.
Admittedly, not the most technically accomplished photo I've ever taken but demonstrates the point I feel!
Finally we took a trip to see Snowdon *ahem* on the wettest and cloudiest day of our holiday.
I'm going on a virtual journey around some stunning landscapes over at Sticky Fingers. Bring your passport!
