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 ……

A Quick Visit to Fan Brycheiniog

Pen y Fan and Corn Du

Our summer has been incredibly busy and we’ve barely had time to breathe. And even this weekend when we’re at a music festival, I have to leave there at 5am on Saturday to go to Brecon for the craft fair before returning to the festival again in the evening. It’ll be a long day but I do love attending the Brecon craft fair and meeting lots of people.

Late last week, we took 4 of ……

A Breath of Fresh Air

Worms Head, Rhossili Bay, Gower

An Epic Start to 2016

Sgwd yr Eira

Firstly, I’d like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! After working extremely hard in December with the lead up to Christmas (we worked 30 days straight, sometimes 100 hours a week each!) we finally got a chance to get out into the countryside. Being couped up inside for so long isn’t easy for people who love the outdoors so much and today was our first day without any kids. The weather forecast wasn’t great ……

Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015

Me with the 100x40cm photo printed out

Every year I enter Take a View’s Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. This year, I was lucky enough to have one image short-listed – that meant I had to send off the full-resolution file along with RAW files for inspection to make sure it adhered to the competition rules. A couple of days ago I had an email to tell me my short-listed photo had been commended by the judges and had won a ……

Shooting The Liberty Stadium

The Liberty Stadium, Swansea

I was recently asked to provide photos of Liberty Stadium as my client wanted a fresh view of them. Aside from the obvious one from the road, I wasn’t sure what scope there was for providing a different sort of photo. My business (and personal) partner, Anneka, knew of a place to go so we headed up in typical August summer weather – strong winds with occasional rain. At least the clouds would be interesting…
