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…

1. Corn Du and Pen y Fan from Upper Neuadd Reservoir
January 16th: This was my first trip out for a while and I was so blown away by the light and the scene that I spent over an hour on this spot! What caught my eye was the ice that was vaguely ……

Infrared and Rivers

Afon Pyrddin in Infrared 'false colour', Brecon Beacons National Park

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’ ……

Three Cliffs Bay in Infrared

Three Cliffs Bay in Infrared

Yesterday I had the delight of running a One to One half day Landscape Photography Workshop. Once again I was fortunate with the weather and, although cold, it didn’t rain. One of our stops was an amazing viewpoint overlooking Three Cliffs Bay. I spotted the patterns in the rock and suggested my workshop attendee use them as foreground.

Infrared on Moel Gornach

Summit cairn on Moel Gornach, Black Mountain

I even managed to get some photography in using my Infrared camera. This ……

Upper Neuadd Reservoir

Corn Du and Pen y Fan from Upper Neuadd Reservoir

In mid-January, I decided to visit Upper Neuadd Reservoir for the first time in years. It was also my first proper photography outing of 2013 as redecorating my daughter’s room had taken precedence. When I arrived, I couldn’t believe my luck as the conditions were amazing! I made my way to the water’s edge and got my camera out. I tried to get in a position where the peaks were reflected in the water whilst ……

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 ……
