Orion Constellation, The Moon and Tor Bay

Orion, the Moon, Tor Bay and Oxwich Bay

This is a follow on from the previous blog post when I went out to shoot stars on Gower. I had left Emma and headed down to Penmaen Burrows on my own – I was pleased to see there weren’t any more cars in the car park, so it meant I had the place to myself. I went to the viewpoint of Tor Bay that I use on my Workshops and set up behind a ……

Rhossili Bay Stars at Night

Rhossili Bay, The Helvetia Wreck, The Milky Way and The Plough

Last night I headed to Rhossili Bay to photograph stars. I’ve shot star trails there before, but this time I wanted to capture the stars as pin pricks. I had checked everything but had forgotten to look at the moon forecast so was a little disappointed when I saw there was a half-moon high in the sky, but the weather has been so bad recently that I decided to go anyway. I met up with ……

Brandy Cove Sunrise

Brandy Cove, Gower

It is pouring with rain this morning and I have a rather large backlog of photos I haven’t processed. I was scrolling through and a morning trip to capture Brandy Cove at sunrise caught my eye. In particular, it was this photo that I thought it was worth spending some time on. When I took the photo, I was perched on a rock and waiting for waves to come in so I could capture the ……

Pobbles Beach in the Snow

Pobbles Beach

This is a follow on to a previous blog post about my trip in the snow to Pobbles Beach and Three Cliffs Bay. I have spent some time processing another photo from that trip which I took whilst standing on the viewpoint overlooking the three cliffs. As mentioned previously, the view to Oxwich Bay was hazy and not particularly great. However, looking the other way across Pobbles Beach, the view was a lot better and ……

Gower Snow 2013

Overlooking Pobbles Beach

It has been a while since I posted a blog entry and the main reason is that I’ve been working on a site redesign, making it simpler and quicker. That is the site you’re viewing now! I did manage to get out in the snow and spent some time on the cliffs at Pennard and on Three Cliffs Bay.

I arrived at Southgate car park at 6am and promptly got stuck in the snow by driving ……

A Photo a Month from 2012

Three Cliffs Bay from Penmaen Burrows

Happy New Year!

2012 has been a great year for me and it will have to be an amazing 2013 to beat it! Here are 12 photos, 1 from each month.

January 2012
I spent several hours on Mynydd Illtud sat in the car passing time by learning French whilst frost formed on the grass. Every few minutes, I had to get out of the car in the pitch black and take another photo for the “stack”. Farmers ……

An Epic Rhossili Sunset

Worms Head, Rhossili Bay

A couple of weeks ago I led a Landscape Photography Workshop at Rhossili. The forecast was interesting and we did have a very long rain shower, but there was sun and we were blessed with wonderful lighting conditions! For sunset, we decided to climb Rhossili Down and photograph the bay from above. The clouds were absolutely amazing – some of the best I’ve ever seen! This, for me, has to be my photo of the ……
