As some of you know we’ve recently returned from a two-week road trip in North West America. I haven’t had time to go through all my photos but here are two I took on my phone in Yellowstone National Park.
The first is Gibbon Falls at about 8.30am. The light was just incredible and I am hoping the pictures I got on my DSLR do it some justice. The second picture is of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River and was simply stunning. Worth the hike back up the hill from the viewing point.

As we are travelling somewhere in the Pacific North West of America, I thought I would share some old pictures I took as WiFi and coverage is going to be patchy at best. These were taken some time ago and were my attempt at Black and White for a Photography course I was doing at the time. 

I like the raindrops one but feel the leaf could have been more in focus. I’m not sure if I was using too small an aperture and therefore getting too shallow a depth of field. But I thought I’d share them anyway!

One place I really wanted to visit in Wales before we left the UK was St. Fagan’s and not long before we departed, that’s exactly what we did. I was so glad we did as it is an amazing place to wander around. We spent a full day there and didn’t get to see all of it. I’ll be writing all about our visit soon.

This cottage, with the smoke coming out of its chimney, really caught my eye. It reminded me of my parents second home in Galway, Ireland, before they sold it. The walls were white, and during the winter there was always a fire going in the house. But they were lucky enough not to have a thatched roof. I didn’t spend a lot of time in that house but there was something special about it. It is now gone, replaced by a home in Portugal for their retirement instead. I’d say that’s a good trade-off.

Last weekend was the 26th annual Street Parade, the most attended technoparade in Europe. It takes place very year in Zurich, Switzerland, with the parade following a path around Lake Zurich. It is something BattleDad and I have been fortune to attend and it was absolutely amazing.
It was one of the most peaceful, yet exciting, techno events I’ve ever attended, if you say those two things in the same sentence about anything techno! We were in Zurich with friends for the weekend and, by chance, it was the weekend of Street Parade. We went down to the Lake early enough on the Saturday to get a spot to watch the parade. And we weren’t disappointed. 
The floats, costumes and music were everything we could have hoped for and more. And there were plenty of kids around, some even in elaborate costumes, taking part in the parade. One day we will return with BattleKid. But for now, I’ll share a few pictures from our visit in 2010.
