Sgwd yr Eira

Firstly, I’d like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! After working extremely hard in December with the lead up to Christmas (we worked 30 days straight, sometimes 100 hours a week each!) we finally got a chance to get out into the countryside. Being couped up inside for so long isn’t easy for people who love the outdoors so much and today was our first day without any kids. The weather forecast wasn’t great ……

Today, I woke with frost on my hat!

On our way up to the ridge by Corn Du

Every so often, life brings on experiences that put you back in touch with the world and help shape your future. It all started when we realised we had a free evening and I said “hey, we should camp in the snow”.

Caswell Bay

I’ve had an extremely busy time of late and am slowly starting to settle down. I have been out and about taking new photos when I can and will be going out a lot in the following months. I will admit that summer is my least favourite season as sunrise is so early, but that can also have an advantage in that I can be back home in time for breakfast. Here is a selection ……

My Top 10 Favourite Photos of 2013

Pen y Fan from Corn Du at Night

As 2013 nears the end, I thought I would pick my favourite 10 photos that I’ve taken throughout the year. In no particular order…

On my trip to Sgwd Gwladus yesterday, I stopped at a picturesque viewpoint along the river. I set up the camera as usual and shot some normal photos. I then wondered how it would look with my Infrared camera so I got it out. It’s always difficult to see what you’re getting with Infrared but the results on the LCD looked promising. When I processed them later, I found that I preferred the ‘false colour’ ……
