Talybont Reservoir

Always keen to search out new viewpoints in the Brecons, I spotted Tor y Foel on the map and thought it looked a prime spot for an overview of Talybont Reservoir. The location wasn’t particularly pleasant due to a rather large number of flies, but I came away with a photo I think I am happy with! Click on it for a much larger version.

Cefn Cwm Llwch Panoramas

The forecast yesterday was for partly cloudy conditions over the Brecon Beacons so I set out after the evening meal and climbed 427 metres over 2.5Km to Cefn Cwm Llwch to shoot a panorama of Pen y Fan. Typically, I had to stand around in the bitter wind whilst the sun was behind the only large cloud in the whole sky… Eventually, the sun sank below the cloud and the landscape was bathed in golden ……

My plan was to climb to the top of Fan Brycheiniog and look down onto Llyn y Fan Fawr for sunrise. I set the alarm for 4am and started walking ……

The Carmarthen Fan in the Brecon Beacons

Last Friday I went for a walk to capture a photo of Llyn y Fan Fach on the Carmarthen Fan in the Brecon Beacons. Unfortunately, the weather was very hazy so it was so good but I did capture a couple of photos on the way that I am happy with!

Happy New Year and No VAT

You’ll be pleased to know that as I’m not VAT registered, I don’t charge VAT so my prices won’t be going up :-) I will pay more to various suppliers but I shall absorb those costs myself as they’re pretty minimal. My new 100x40cm panorama framed photos I ……

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.
