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 ……

Alive in the Brecons

It’s below zero and is windy; the sun has set and it’s getting dark; it’s an hour’s walk to the car; I’m at 720m asl in the Brecon Beacons; I’m wearing thermals, base layer, 2 micro fleeces, fleece coat and waterproof/windproof coat to keep warm; it starts snowing. That sort of thing can make you feel really alive, in touch with the landscape around you and is exactly where I was lucky enough to be ……

Sunset on the Pen y Fan Massif

Last night, I decided to head out to the Brecon Beacons to see what sunset would offer. It took me just under an hour’s walking to reach the spot I wanted.

After the 2 panoramas, ……

A Google search found some photos, some of which ……

Sunset on Cribyn

On the 31st of July 2007, I drove to Lower Neuadd Reservoir and walked up to Cribyn for sunset. Occasionally, I tend to build up a bit of a back log of photos to process. For some reason, this trip was one of those that ended up in the back log. I’d processed a couple, but that was as far as I got until now. I suspect these really should have been with the Photolibrary ……

The Black Mountains

The Black Mountains are the furthest of the Brecon Beacons ranges from me so I rarely go there. I didn’t go there this time either, but I used my long lens to capture Sugar Loaf at sunset. I had gone to photograph Pen y Fan and Corn Du, but it was shrouded in persistent cloud.
