Langland Bay and Caswell Bay

With the weather being mostly pouring rain this week, I headed out on the only good half day that was forecast and was joined by Paula and Piran. We parked at Langland Bay and walked to Caswell Bay, stopping to take photos along the way. We even discovered a new path that took us above Caswell Bay so we could look down on the beach! I’ve always struggled to get a good photo of Caswell ……

Three Cliffs Bay, Tor Bay and Oxwich Bay

Following the success of the 100x40cm panoramas I introduced in the December exhibition, I went out yesterday in the first break in the weather for a few days with the aim of capturing some new panoramas. I spent 2 hours walking around Penmaen Burrows and Three Cliffs Bay whilst taking various new photos. Here are a couple of new ones – you can click on them to access the buying options but please note that ……

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.

Langland Bay

I recently discovered that there is a higher viewpoint of Langland Bay than I normally use when shooting sunrise there so I nipped out this morning to have a go.

Before I went back home, I went down to the water’s edge and took a photo with my 10 stop ND filter to see how it looked with a 6 minute exposure.

Mumbles Pier and Lighthouse

Last Tuesday morning, I set the alarm for 4am. That’s the trouble with summer – the sun rises so early! 5:09am so the BBC Weather site told me. Add in time to get dressed and have something quick to eat, then drive there, walk to the location, set up and finally be ready to take the photo. I was only standing around for about 10 minutes before the sun rose. And sometimes the sky before ……

Sunrise at Llyn y Fan Fawr

On Saturday morning, I ventured out in the snow at 6am and drove into the Brecon Beacons. There was snow on the road, but not enough to cause a problem. The conditions were difficult underfoot as it was icy and dark. Sunrise itself wasn’t that spectacular as there were no clouds in the sky, but afterwards I spent a while photographing the ice on the lake. The wind was bitterly cold and I started to ……

Frozen Afon Pyrddin and Sgwd Gwladys

On Saturday, the three (four including the baby which hasn’t been born yet!) drove to Pontneddfechan to walk along the river to see Sgwd Gwladys. The path was treacherous in places but we made it to the confluence and from there on in, the scenery was amazing!
