Caswell Bay and Mewslade Bay

I haven’t updated this blog for a while, mainly as I haven’t had much news for a while as I’ve been recovering from a chest infection. I’m pleased to say that I have now fully recovered!

The Shot I’ve Been After!

With the forecast of imminent snow, I decided to have another go at the sunset shot I wanted of the Pen y Fan Massif – I didn’t want a winter scene with snow… With -4 degrees C forecast at 800m, I knew it was going to be cold. On the way I had to go through a few streams – the backs of my trousers froze solid by the time I got back to the ……
