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 ……

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, ……

A Quick Trip to The Black Mountains

Llangorse Lake and Pen y Fan from Mynydd Llangorse

We finally had some spare time and the weather forecast was good so we jumped into the car and headed east to Mynydd Llangorse. We climbed part of the hill in the diffuse sunlight, keeping an eye on the band of clear sky that we knew would give us beautiful side lighting. We sat on the side of the hill with bilberries staining our clothes and flies that were a cross between a flying ant ……
