I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300 & SX150 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer!

Taunton, Somerset, United Kingdom
Caption: Two photos stitched together to show part of the castle, the other part of the castle had scoffolding on it & you don't want to see that! The great hall in Taunton castle was the site where the Bloody Assizes where held after the failed Monmouth Rebellion (the last battle on English soil) in 1685. Hundreds of people who had followed the Duke of Monmouth into battle near Westonzoyland (known as The Battle of Sedgemoor) were tried by Judge Jeffries & either hanged flogged or sold into slavery.
