Norway Day 5 – Hiking the Besseggen Ridge Trail

This was by far the best hike I did during my short time in Norway. The Besseggen Ridge lies well far into the interior of the country, possibly why we had great weather on our hike! The hike is 14km long between Gjendesheim and Memurubu. You can hike the ridge first and get the ferryContinue reading “Norway Day 5 – Hiking the Besseggen Ridge Trail”

Norway Day 4 – Reinheimen National Park

Following our previous night sleep wild camping in the mountain pass, we packed up the tent and drove down what seemed like an endless valley. We passed several lakes and stopped off in Reinheimen National Park at Billingen Seterpensjonat, which was a small restaurant next to some spectacular waterfalls. We ordered the house speciality whichContinue reading “Norway Day 4 – Reinheimen National Park”

Our Winter Castle

This is one of the last photos I’ll take in the UK this year and I think it’s definitely one of my favourites of the year. Dolbadarn Castle sits between Llyn Peris and Llyn Padarn near Llanberis. I have walked up to it many times over the years and wondered how I would photograph it.Continue reading “Our Winter Castle”

Mountaineering Adventure in the Ogwen Valley

I stayed overnight in my campervan in the Ogwen valley in County Conwy so I could wake up to freshly fallen snow and a winter hike! I walked up from Idwal Cottage towards Llyn Idwal below the steep cliffs of the Devils Kitchen. On my way I met fellow photographer Ben Hughes and product photographerContinue reading “Mountaineering Adventure in the Ogwen Valley”

Ribblehead Viaduct Aerial Photography

I grew up just down the road from Ribblehead viaduct at the top end of Ribblesdale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, but because it was always there for me, I didn’t take the time to photograph it. As one of the most popular landscape photography landmarks in the UK, I thought I’d try andContinue reading “Ribblehead Viaduct Aerial Photography”

Some Autumn moments

My wife Rosy and I took a walk in Gaer Fawr, a Woodland Trust site near Welshpool. The leaves were starting to change colour and there were mushrooms everywhere! The colours were a real mix of green, yellow, red and brown. My favourite image is the mushrooms on the logs surrounded by leaves and berries.Continue reading “Some Autumn moments”

Cornwall Collection

Here is a small collection of recent landscape photos from Cornwall. The seascapes are breath-taking in this part of the country and definitely worth a trip, for a surf, ice cream, lounge on the beach or just a general wander about. All images are available to purchase in my online store.

Caernarfon Walls

I love the town of Caernarfon with its ancient walls and castle. Narrow streets full of shops and bars lay within and you really feel like you’re stepping back a few centuries. I took this one using the monotone preset in-camera with orange filter selected. This cuts out a lot of the blue and aquaContinue reading “Caernarfon Walls”

The Lonely Tree

Last week I spent a good couple of hours trying to decide how I would photograph this infamous tree. The subject of many landscape photography prizes, the view changes over the year depending on the water level and also over time with surrounding vegetation. As a well known Welsh icon I thought it would makeContinue reading “The Lonely Tree”
