The Beast From The East

Worms Head, Rhossili Bay

Well, I guess with all the snow we had recently you are expecting lots of snowy photos of Gower… However, I think we are the only place in the country that didn’t get snow. I’ve tried to found out why and it’s apparently our location. When snow comes from the north and east, the Brecon Beacons trap the clouds and they dump all the snow before they get to us. It seems the only way ……

Llyn y Fan Fawr in the Snow

Llyn y Fan Fawr and Fan Brycheiniog

With fresh snow fallen, we decided it was definitely time to visit Llyn y Fan Fawr. It is one of our favourite areas of the Brecon Beacons and far away from the hoards of people who head up to Pen y Fan – don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame them. After all, two days ago we went up to Pen y Fan and thoroughly enjoyed it. Mountains to me are about solitude and peace, ……

Today, I woke with frost on my hat!

On our way up to the ridge by Corn Du

Every so often, life brings on experiences that put you back in touch with the world and help shape your future. It all started when we realised we had a free evening and I said “hey, we should camp in the snow”.

Two days later, we were enduring one of the hardest walks we’ve done. I had 25Kg on my back – that’s 4 stone in old money! I ……

Fan Brycheiniog with the PANSTARRS Comet, Andromeda Galaxy, Cepheus, Cassiopeia and Vega

The latter part of this winter has been brilliant (winter is my favourite season) and, whilst I was disappointed by the first snow in January when it was overcast and misty, the March snow has stuck around with a lovely high pressure meaning clear skies. Thanks to all this, I was able to make this exposure.

Pobbles Beach in the Snow

Pobbles Beach

This is a follow on to a previous blog post about my trip in the snow to Pobbles Beach and Three Cliffs Bay. I have spent some time processing another photo from that trip which I took whilst standing on the viewpoint overlooking the three cliffs. As mentioned previously, the view to Oxwich Bay was hazy and not particularly great. However, looking the other way across Pobbles Beach, the view was a lot better and ……

Gower Snow 2013

Overlooking Pobbles Beach

It has been a while since I posted a blog entry and the main reason is that I’ve been working on a site redesign, making it simpler and quicker. That is the site you’re viewing now! I did manage to get out in the snow and spent some time on the cliffs at Pennard and on Three Cliffs Bay.

I arrived at Southgate car park at 6am and promptly got stuck in the snow by driving ……

Landscape Photographer of the Year 2012

Each year I enter the Take a View Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. They have several thousand entries, so people don’t expect to win – instead, the aim of most photographers is to get their photos into the book and on display in the National Theatre in London. A photographer called David Byrne won the overall competition, but I am absolutely delighted to have one of my photos commended and to get one of ……
