Autumn in the Lake District

Managed to sneak in a few hours with the camera..couple of dawn/early morning shoots. One at Kelly Hall Tarn  and the other was incidental photography as I was driving over the top of Wrynose Pass!

Moelwyn View Holiday Cottage

Well it has been a very busy year…..I have spent most of my spare time working on and overseeing the renovation of an 1860’s Quarryman’s cottage in Snowdonia for a holiday let business. Finally finished last month and have just had my first guests leave after a 16 day booking. It is in a fantastic location. I have set up a page on my photography website with info and if anyone is interested in making a booking please contact me directly for pricing and availability. It is in a great location for photography, outdoor activities and accessing local tourist hotspots.

Trip to Sri Lanka

Had a recent cycle touring trip to Sri Lanka which was fantastic. Independent trip with a friend. Made up our own route. Took the Fuji XT1 and one smallish lens so easy to pop in a bar bag. Monkeys, tea plantations, Sri Lankan beer, curries, samosa’s and  a wild elephant coming onto the road only yards away from where I had just cycled past…It was quite the adventure!

Been a while since I’ve had a chance to get out with the camera.   I love these slate fences. Seen in the South Snowdonia area near Nantlle and the Ffestiniogs. I always look at images with landscape and portrait view in mind as sometimes an image works better when viewed in a specific format. However, with this one I could not decide so have printed both and they will soon be available in Bodnant Craft Centre and the Galeri at Betwys Y Coed.

Trip to the Alpujarras

Just returned from a trip to the Alpujarras in Spain to photograph the almond blossom. Not fully out in some places due to the cold weather (colder than expected) but in the Lecrin Valley and the Sierra de al Contraviesa some almond groves were in full bloom. Beautiful to see. Great walking on the many long distance walking routes in the area…..plenty to explore both in and outside the small villages…..Will leave it until mid-February next time or head further down towards Malaga where the blossom season is more advanced…More images can be found in the Gallery section under ‘Travel Photography’.

Goodbye 2017….Hello 2018…!!

2017 is almost finished with and looking forward to more time out with the camera in 2018. Just booked a trip to the Alpujarras in February to photograph the almond blossom and trip round Ireland in the campervan on the cards. All in all 2017 has been pretty busy.

Successfully awarded the Welsh Photographic Federation Distinction back in November for a panel of 12 images. Have attached the Hanging Plan…title was ‘At the Water’s Edge’.

 

 

Delivered a few camera club talks and one to the Royal Geographical Society (regional group). More talks pending in the next three months…..may look at another photographic challenge…possibly the Irish Photographic Federation…lots to think about and put into action..but isn’t that what a  New Years Resolution is all about:-)

And here is my last image from 2017….from my local stamping ground..the beautiful Dee Valley near Llangollen. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

The Lleyn Peninsula

The beautiful Lleyn Peninsula is stunning at this time of year…..managed a few days over there last week and even did a boat trip to Bardsey Island. Something I have been trying to do for years but the weather gods were always against me…..images can be found in the ‘Angelsey and Lleyn Peninsula’ gallery.

A trip to the woods….

While waiting for the mountain bike to be repaired I did a walk in Llandegla woods, (home of ‘One Planet Adventure’ mountain bike centre)  and hit lucky with some lovely evening  light….I have added both images to the North East Wales Gallery.
