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.

New images……..





I ventured down to the Ceredigion coast in May and to South Wales to have a look at Nash Point in Glamorgan. Fantastic rock formations…just got around to looking at the memory card of images and sorting a few out….Had a busy few months. At the start of the month I was in Edinburgh for the opening evening of Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year. Great to see my Berneray seascape in large print and meet some of the other photographers…looking forward now to Autumn and some great seasonal colour!!

The Heather is here!!!

I love the time of year when everything turns purple. The heather is starting to show and almost in full bloom in some areas, the wild croscosmia is going to be out in the next few weeks and the water lillies are in full swing  in some of the lakes and tarns of Snowdonia……time to get out with the camera again. Image of Y Garn and Foel Goch taken this weekend from Llyn Ogwen!

Bluebell heaven

Some new images taken for the Llangollen Tourist Information Centre…I came across this local scene a few weeks ago. Unusual to find so many in a field and not in a shady woodland……
