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”

Menai Bridge Aerial Drone Flyover

I made this video back in September before the Menai Bridge closed for repairs. The Menai bridge is one of two bridges that connect Anglesey to mainland Wales. Local businesses and residents can’t wait for it to open again due to the traffic and congestion the closure has caused, and also the dependence on theContinue reading “Menai Bridge Aerial Drone Flyover”

Sunset on Anglesey

I was treated to an absolutely fantastic sunset a couple of weeks ago at Porth Cwyfan near Aberffraw on Anglesey, Wales. I had the camera on a tripod with some ND filters on so I could reduce the light and smooth the water. I also got the drone up in the air and got someContinue reading “Sunset on Anglesey”

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”

Bwa Gwyn

I had a great evening photographing the coast around Rhoscolyn on Anglesey, Wales. The weather was changing quickly and the strong wind from around the headland was bringing in a fresh chop on the sea. As the waves lapped into the cove I decided it was best to capture the waves over a few secondsContinue reading “Bwa Gwyn”

Llandudno Pier

It was a great day for black and white photography with some moody skies and empty streets. After walking up around the Great Orme, I thought I was happy with the shots I had on my DSLR camera, but on the way down I really started to like the symmetry and little bits of asymmetryContinue reading “Llandudno Pier”
