This Friday’s beer is Corona Extra, with a small wedge of a tiny orange, from a tiny orange tree we got from the supermarket. They are quite sour oranges so only suitable for cocktails and drinks flavouring!
This week marked our 1st wedding anniversary! We had a trip out to Barmouth Beach. I have to say the Welsh coastine is something else. Going straight from the beach to mountains, it’s an absolute dream!
I’ve been working a lot on my composition with landscapes recently. Trying to remove the clutter from scenes while retaining what makes the scene interesting. Unfortunately, at Barmouth there is a car park right in the middle of the town on the seafront, which is incredibly convenient for parking, but not so much for photography. In the above shot I used the sand dunes to hide the car park and street, whilst still having the masts from some of the boats and beach scene in the foreground to create points of interests. Combined with the dramatic mountains in the background I think the shot turned out very well. Sometimes I find cloud shadows annoying, sometimes I find them useful. In this case they work nicely to create depth in the image and also highlight certain features, such as the farm half way up the hill.
It was great to see so many small businesses opening and it was nice to have a coffee and some moules frites by the seaside at the Lobster Pot (nearly all the waste there is biodegradable FYI!). Everyone was social distancing nicely and using hand sanitizer, so I had no concerns. #HeadWest, get over there. It’s great!
