Glendurgan gardens in Cornwall. The pink petals come from a rhododendron overhanging the path. On the left of the path is a camellia flower, in the distance are bluebells on the bank and I think the white shrub is an azalea. A three-shot HDR image processed in Photomatix and then edited in the GIMP.

Cogs in a gunpowder mill at Kennall Vale in Ponsanooth, Cornwall. Machinery in the gunpowder mill was driven by water from leats in what is now a nature reserve.

+Chris Bowness We walked slowly. It was an enjoyable day, although I'm glad we listened to the advice and took cold weather gear for the summit. By the time we reached the bottom, my knees were suffering and it was the final descent, over the uneven path that was the biggest trial for me. The day was varied and the visibility was mostly good, so we enjoyed ourselves much more than when we walked up Snowdon.

Glenfinnian viaduct, made famous by the Harry Potter films, although sadly we didn't see any flying cars on our visit.

+Mark Huckle Thanks Mark. A friendly farmer told us that the train was coming and advised us on the best spot from which to photograph.

Such a good case, with easy access to all of the ports on the Pi through the removable lid.
High quality Raspberry Pi case for your Model B Plus   Features: 3 piece construction for better access and assembly combinations. High gloss top plate (for high value) and textured sides (hard wearing). Better air flow (for some who may be over-clocking their device). Route for FFC, & IDE harness whilst replacing the top plate for a more complete aesthetic. Improved on-board connector access. We've removed more base material so that t...

Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, UK. Really enjoyed the visit, the castle is not a ruin and is still lived in by the Percy family. The weather was perfect and I love the portability and features of my Canon EOS M.
