Large Panoramas of Gower and Brecon Beacons

I’ve added a new page to this website to showcase my new huge panoramas. Click on the Panoramas tab on the menu to see them in all their glory!

Please note that the website has been updated and simplified since this post so that page is no longer available. Instead, the panoramas are inside the usual ……

Rhossili Bay and Helvetia Wreck

After a lot of rain, the weather finally improved so I drove to Rhossili yesterday afternoon with the aim of adding to my new collection of panoramas that are wider than the eye can see. I’ve got 3 or 4 new ones, but have only processed one so far. They take quite a bit of processing power – this photo is comprised of fourteen 21 megapixel images! The final image is 1.4 metres at 300dpi ……

Langland Bay and Caswell Bay

With the weather being mostly pouring rain this week, I headed out on the only good half day that was forecast and was joined by Paula and Piran. We parked at Langland Bay and walked to Caswell Bay, stopping to take photos along the way. We even discovered a new path that took us above Caswell Bay so we could look down on the beach! I’ve always struggled to get a good photo of Caswell ……

Langland Bay Panorama

With the prospect of heavy rain all week next week, I made sure I went out this morning to take advantage of sunrise. The tide was perfect for Langland Bay, so I got there at 7:25am, found my location and stood drinking coffee and watching the sea getting ever closer to cutting me off. I had to wait a little longer due to a cloud bank obscuring the rising sun which meant I had to ……

Three Cliffs Bay, Tor Bay and Oxwich Bay

Following the success of the 100x40cm panoramas I introduced in the December exhibition, I went out yesterday in the first break in the weather for a few days with the aim of capturing some new panoramas. I spent 2 hours walking around Penmaen Burrows and Three Cliffs Bay whilst taking various new photos. Here are a couple of new ones – you can click on them to access the buying options but please note that ……

Alive in the Brecons

It’s below zero and is windy; the sun has set and it’s getting dark; it’s an hour’s walk to the car; I’m at 720m asl in the Brecon Beacons; I’m wearing thermals, base layer, 2 micro fleeces, fleece coat and waterproof/windproof coat to keep warm; it starts snowing. That sort of thing can make you feel really alive, in touch with the landscape around you and is exactly where I was lucky enough to be ……

Autumn in the Black Mountain

After a poor night’s sleep due to injuring my back somehow, I drove out to the Black Mountain to look for a new Carreg Cennen Castle viewpoint. The weather was lovely, clear and warm and a delight to be outside. I stopped on the way when I saw the mist in the valley below me. This photo was taken near the quarry by Foel Fawr before the hairpin bends drop you off the Brecons.
