The Beast From The East

Worms Head, Rhossili Bay

Well, I guess with all the snow we had recently you are expecting lots of snowy photos of Gower… However, I think we are the only place in the country that didn’t get snow. I’ve tried to found out why and it’s apparently our location. When snow comes from the north and east, the Brecon Beacons trap the clouds and they dump all the snow before they get to us. It seems the only way ……

Caswell Bay in the Early Hours

Caswell Bay with Airglow

After my visit to Three Cliffs Bay, I wasn’t ready to head home yet so I thought about where I could go next. It was around 1am and I was starting to get tired so Caswell Bay was the obvious place as I didn’t have to walk far from the car. I parked the car in the very empty car park and nipped up on to the coast path. I took a few shots and ……

An Amazing Night at Three Cliffs

Three Cliffs Bay with Sirius and Airglow

Last night I had an Astrophotography Workshop at Three Cliffs Bay. After almost cancelling because it was cloudy and raining when we met, we spent a good few hours out on the cliffs taking photos before going back to the cars. When my client had left, I walked all the way back out to the cliffs by myself. Half way, it started raining again and I almost turned around and headed back to the car, ……

Llyn y Fan Fawr in the Snow

Llyn y Fan Fawr and Fan Brycheiniog

With fresh snow fallen, we decided it was definitely time to visit Llyn y Fan Fawr. It is one of our favourite areas of the Brecon Beacons and far away from the hoards of people who head up to Pen y Fan – don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame them. After all, two days ago we went up to Pen y Fan and thoroughly enjoyed it. Mountains to me are about solitude and peace, ……

A Visit to Sgydau Sychryd

Sgydau Sychryd

It’s been quite a while since my last blog post so here is a short post to get things going again. We had a short walk today at Dinas Rock – naturally, I took my camera with me. When we arrived at Sgydau Sychryd, this view looking down onto the river, waterfall and bridge caught my eye so I spent some time composing this photo. I like the way the bridge is in the to ……

This Photo was Taken with Pain

Mewslade Bay, Gower

There are times when you have to suffer a little for your art and Sunday was one such day. We took a family trip to Mewslade Bay and I, of course, took my camera with me. When we got there it was overcast but we could see that the sun would soon be coming out. Sure enough it did and I took a few photos. However, I couldn’t quite get the angle I wanted. The ……

Drunk on Sunlight

The Most Amazing Sunset Ever at Rhossili, Gower

I hadn’t really checked the weather forecast but knew it would be cloudy around sunset so didn’t really expect to see anything when we went to Rhossili yesterday. When I got to the car park, the sun was behind the edge of a very large cloud bank. I walked as quickly as I could down to the cliffs and managed to see the rays of the sun peaking out from behind the clouds and was ……
