Sunrise at Brandy Cove

Brandy Cove

It has been a long time since I’ve been out for proper photography, but this morning I headed out to Caswell Bay to meet up with Mark who I met on Facebook and Flickr. We’ve met before at my exhibitions but this was the first time out taking photos. Landscape Photography is a lonely business, often working alone, so it’s always nice to meet up with people. From Caswell, we walked the coast path to ……

Oxwich Bay

A few weeks ago, I took a trip out to Penmaen Burrows to overlook Oxwich Bay for sunset with Emma. Before leaving, I inspected the area using the Google satellite images and spotted a likely looking location to photograph Oxwich Bay from. When we got there, it wasn’t obvious where that spot was but there was what looked like an animal track leading out to the cliff edge. Curious, I walked along it and was ……

Sunset at Rhossili Bay and Worms Head

Worms Head and Rhossili

A few weeks ago, I ran a Landscape Photography Workshop that ended up at Rhossili Down. Whilst there, I spotted a great patch of wild flowers so at the next possible opportunity, I headed out there for sunset. When I got there, though, I was a little disappointed to find livestock have pooed all over it! Luckily, there were other wild flowers nearby so I set the camera up and waited. I really wanted the ……

Whiteford Sands

A few weeks ago, I went out to Whiteford Sands with Emma Jones. We were hoping for a spectacular sunset but were let down. On the walk out, we spotted some periwinkles that had been exposed by a low tide and had been crawling along the sand – see Emma’s blog post for photos. Whilst she was photographing the periwinkles, I spotted a small patch of barnacles.

Langland Bay

At the beginning of the month, I set the alarm early and headed out to Langland Bay for sunrise. The position of the sun meant I couldn’t go for the angle I wanted, so instead I headed out to Snaple Point. There was a smattering of sea thrift around, but not swathes of it unfortunately. I used my wide angle lens to include the beach huts, the sea thrift and the sun.

Three Cliffs Bay from Pennard

One evening last week, I met up with Emma Jones (who joins me at my exhibitions) at Southgate. When we arrived, it was raining heavily but the sun was out and lighting up the landscape beautifully. The rain stopped and the sun went in for the rest of the evening, but we headed out anyway. Despite the unfavourable weather conditions, I’m still pleased with what I photographed:

Pobbles Beach and Three Cliffs Bay

We then climbed ……

A Stormy Three Cliffs Bay

With bad weather forecast last week, I picked the only day that looked good for sunrise and headed out to Penmaen Burrows. As usual, the forecast was wrong and I got rained on rather than seeing clear skies. However, this time it worked in my favour. Here is one photo I took whilst getting rained on:

And here is another one:

Needless to say, the forecast was wrong for the rest ……
