I have had a chance to process a couple more photos from my very early trip to Craig Cerrig-gleisiad in the Brecon Beacons this week. Whilst I was waiting for the sun to rise above the cloud bank, I was trying a 10-stop long exposure photo – I was about to do another when suddenly the sun appeared. I quickly put the 10 stop filter to one side (carefully, because it’s made of glass!) and composed this photo.
Just over half an hour later, I was in a different location – I knew there was some cotton grass in great condition thanks to the trip last week so had headed there. I used my wide angle lens to get down low and compose this photo.
I am particularly pleased with this photo – so pleased, in fact, it has usurped a photo of Sgwd Isaf Clun-gwyn to become the cover of my 2014 Brecon Beacons Calendar, which will be on sale soon….
