Bioluminescent Plankton

Bioluminescent Plankton at Aberavon, Wales

With all the bioluminescence that has been happening on the South Wales coastline recently, it meant we just had to get out and see it for ourselves. It had been seen on Oxwich Bay on Friday night, so Saturday night saw us at Oxwich Bay waiting for the magic to happen. But nothing happened…. There were a lot of disappointed people. As I came back to the car from checking out the water, a car ……

An Amazing Night at Three Cliffs

Three Cliffs Bay with Sirius and Airglow

Last night I had an Astrophotography Workshop at Three Cliffs Bay. After almost cancelling because it was cloudy and raining when we met, we spent a good few hours out on the cliffs taking photos before going back to the cars. When my client had left, I walked all the way back out to the cliffs by myself. Half way, it started raining again and I almost turned around and headed back to the car, ……

An Epic Rhossili Sunset

Worms Head, Rhossili Bay

A couple of weeks ago I led a Landscape Photography Workshop at Rhossili. The forecast was interesting and we did have a very long rain shower, but there was sun and we were blessed with wonderful lighting conditions! For sunset, we decided to climb Rhossili Down and photograph the bay from above. The clouds were absolutely amazing – some of the best I’ve ever seen! This, for me, has to be my photo of the ……

Happy New Year and No VAT

Happy New Year to everyone! Hope you all had a good Christmas break. Everyone in the UK will be aware that the VAT rate went up today. You’ll be pleased to know that as I’m not VAT registered, I don’t charge VAT so my prices won’t be going up :-) I will pay more to various suppliers but I shall absorb those costs myself as they’re pretty minimal. My new 100x40cm panorama framed photos I ……
