"This is a picture of Agona, a small town in Ghana, a few miles northeast of the second largest city Kumasi. The long road in the picture is the Jamasi road that leads from Kumasi to Jamasi. The area is still fairly untouched, you can still experience the natural beauty of Ghana, away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities". Taken by K Owusu

The Marcher Lords

"Shropshire countryside pan composed from several shots covering 180 degrees merged in Photoshop. Shropshire is part of the Welsh Marches, so called because Marcher Lords once marched here, establishing their territory by fighting and building castles. It was all once part of Wales right up to the river Severn, but the English took away all arable land up to the Welsh mountains, and that's where the border is today complete with mostly ruined castles".

Eat dem Plants!

"Common chickweed is an edible plant which grows everywhere and is flowering the whole year. It stops when it is freezing and then it can disappear, but there are so many seeds around the plant that when it is good weather again it starts growing. In summer when it's hot and dry it will disappear too and start again in autumn. Birds like the weed and we can eat it too as salad. There is a certain medical use". Taken by Wolverlei

We were only at snorkel depth but the sights were amazing, the corals, the jellies (yes they were about so we had to wear 'stinger suits') and the fish, everywhere we looked and in every colour".
