THE VOICE OF WALES

Posted by Picasa
Great! - we are back in business after being unable to post to Blogger for such a long time.

As a child one of my favourite voices was that of Wynford Vaughan Thomas -- this was when we only had radio. About four or five times a year he came on the radio to present a programme, I think, called 'Wales in Winter / Spring etc' or perhaps Christmas in Wales. He was able to weave using words alone a picture of deep snow drifts, summer meadows, wind blown curlews on a sandy estuary. It is hard to think of a more Welsh sounding Welshman. Such a treat.
The photos are of a plaque, placed and often stolen, above Machynlleth on the mountain road. From here many of the great ranges and peaks of Wales can be identified ... five minutes later you see NOTHING ... just mist.
