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

It has been quite some time since I last posted a blog and so much has happened. We have been to lots of events such as the Wales National Airshow, the Gower Chilli Festival and also regularly attend the Uplands Market and the Marina Market every month. We have the Gower Show tomorrow and the Brecon Summer Fayre later this month. We also recently moved house which took us far longer than we expected and ……

An Early Start at Langland Bay

Langland Bay

I set the alarm for 4:30am this morning and headed down to Langland Bay for sunrise. It was pretty cloudy and I didn’t hold much hope out, but about 20 mins after sunrise (I didn’t see the sun) the sky lit up and a few minutes. I took several shots trying to get the wave just right, a sort of hit and miss affair.

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 ……

The Milky Way at Tears Point on Gower

The Milky Way from Tears Point

Last week I ran a One to One Workshop on Gower at Penmaen Burrows and Three Cliffs Bay. We finished after sunset and just 20 minutes later, Venus was very visible in the bright sky so I knew it was going to be a good night for astrophotography! After the client left to go home, I drove to Rhossili and walked along the cliffs towards Tears Point. The Milky Way is particularly good in the ……

Three Cliffs Bay in Infrared

Three Cliffs Bay in Infrared

Yesterday I had the delight of running a One to One half day Landscape Photography Workshop. Once again I was fortunate with the weather and, although cold, it didn’t rain. One of our stops was an amazing viewpoint overlooking Three Cliffs Bay. I spotted the patterns in the rock and suggested my workshop attendee use them as foreground. Whilst she was photographing the scene, I used my Infrared converted camera to take this photo.
