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, ……

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 ……

Astrophotography Workshop

Arthur's Stone, Gower

If you didn’t already know, I run astrophotography workshops and teach people how to take photos like the ones here with their DSLR and normal lenses. Last week I ran one such workshop on Gower with someone who had been on a daylight workshop with me. After a few goes at arranging a date, the skies were finally clear and not only that, the Milky Way was incredibly visible. The first place we stopped was ……

Four Beaches in One Day

Caswell Bay

It was without any planning or warning that we took the day off work yesterday. Well, I say day off, we took the day off from work to work. Instead of opening the shop, we drove down to Oxwich Bay – Oxwich is a difficult beach to photograph and one we get asked for all the time so we decided to see what we could do. With the sun peaking out from behind the clouds, ……
