Photo of the Week – 14 August 2011



This Week’s Photo

I could easily have picked one of the photos I took during my last days on the Jamboree – last Sunday night, we were shipped from Sweden to Finland, and then the whole unit split up to stay with local families in what is known as Home Hospitality. However, tremendous as the entire Jamboree was, the last three editions of Photo of the Week have been devoted to events from it, so I decided to pick a shot taken today, up Mount Snowdon during our short North Wales break, to offer a change.

I took it just minutes after reaching the cloud-covered summit of England and Wale’s highest mountain, when suddenly the sky cleared revealing the spectacular view surrounding us on 360°. Above everything else, this shot reminds me what a beautiful place Britain is, and how very fortunate I am – having met people from every corner of the Earth over the past twenty days – to live in it.

About ‘Photo of the Week’

Every Sunday, I post a photograph taken at some point during the previous seven days. I know that many of the photos featured will not be of enviable quality or stunningly artistic composition, but then the aim is mainly to give me something to nostalgically look back over at the end of the year.
