Astrophotography Workshop

Arthur's Stone, Gower

If you didn’t already know, I run astrophotography workshops and teach people how to take photos like the ones here with their DSLR and normal lenses. Last week I ran one such workshop on Gower with someone who had been on a daylight workshop with me. After a few goes at arranging a date, the skies were finally clear and not only that, the Milky Way was incredibly visible. The first place we stopped was ……

Four Beaches in One Day

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 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 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 ……
