I have just moved the site to a new server which allows me to use mod rewrite within the Apache web server.

This is really great, as I have been able to make the URLs in the blogs section of the site much more search engine and user friendly.

One good thing about having lots of rain is that the waterfalls look really nice.

I was in the Brecon Beacons today walking around the Pen-y-Fan area and all the falls were full of 'rust' from the sandstone rocks.

While yesterday's picture of a Lipstick Cladonia shows one of the rarer plants, today's is of something completely and utterly common - Star Moss.

However, it really does look amazing close up.

Part of the Mountain Leader award is knowledge of flora and fauna in the British hills, so it was nice to spot this beautiful little lichen. I spent a whole day on Arenig Fawr looking for this particular plant and only found one all day!
