It’s been a while since I last posted here but a lot has been going on! I can’t announce it yet as we haven’t got the final box ticked for the go ahead yet but it’s a biggie. We should find out this week so fingers crossed….

Meanwhile, here is a selection of photos I’ve recently taken:

Epic Iceland

The Aurora Borealis and a frozen lake at Snæfellsnes

I was lucky enough to go to Iceland in February this year. The hope was to see the Aurora but even if we didn’t, we would have a great time in the scenery there. It was with disbelief that we saw the aurora on the first night in Reykjavik! We went on to see it a further four times out of nine nights in total! The best time was on the return trip from a ……

West of Galway

Roundstone Bay

A few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to go on holiday to Ireland. We stayed in Roundstone, west of Galway, in a lovely cottage. Naturally, it was a great excuse to take lots of photos! Here is a selection:

Broad Pool, the Moon and the Milky Way

Broad Pool, the Moon and the Milky Way

Earlier this week, my new Canon 6D arrived – I decided to swap from the 5DMkII to the 6D for its superior noise at ISO6400 as I am doing more and more astrophotography. The forecast was for clear skies last night so I headed out to Broad Pool on Gower. I knew the moon would be out, but that was fine as you can still shoot astrophotos with the moon in the sky. I spent ……

Moonrise in the Brecon Beacons

Moonrise with Fan y Big and Brecon

I have seen countless sunrises (and sunsets) but I have never witnessed a ‘moonrise’. I knew the moon would be coming out so was expecting it, but what I wasn’t expecting is how it felt. The moon is typically white in the sky so that was I was expecting. I was shooting photos of Pen y Fan when I glanced across and say a bright ball just peak above the horizon. It’s difficult to explain, ……

Cefn Cyff and Brecon from Fan y Big

Following on from the previous blog post, here is another photo. By now, the moon had risen and was high in the sky. It is amazing how much light the moon produces! It was bright enough for me to cast a shadow! After I had finished at my first location, I walked back to Fan y Big. The wind was pretty strong at the summit so I decided not to post on the ‘diving board’ ……

Above The Clouds At Night

Corn Du, Pen y Fan and Cribyn with The Plough

After becoming bogged down in admin work, I decided it was high time that I headed out for some photography. The forecast was for it to be misty all day, clearing for sunset and night. However, the moon was set to rise just as the stars got dark enough and it was an almost full moon which meant the stars would wash out. But I did have a moonlit landscape in mind so headed out ……
