Snow At Rhossili 2019

Snow finally hit South Wales on the 1st February and it’s law that you must go out with a camera. Now I’m not hardcore like those who camped out on Pen-y-Fan or who trudge miles through the snow. Instead it’s a nice warm car and head out onto Gower. Our first stop was Cefn Bryn… Read More

Why Do You Photograph Lego?

Ok so it’s been a while since I blogged. I had hoped to be a lot more prolific in 2018 and was full of intent to get back in the swing of things as 2019 started. Anyway, the plan is to get writing and uploading photos on a much more regular basis. I now have… Read More

Sunflowers At Rhossili

Last week a friend of mine told me that there were fields of sunflowers at Rhossili. She’d spotted them whilst out horse riding and let me know where to find them. I’ve seen a lot of fields of flowers pictures – mainly lavender – but hadn’t had the time to travel. So, as Rhossili isn’t… Read More

Carrot Cake Energy Ball Cakes

Since my operation and subsequent healthier lifestyle I’ve avoided making cakes using refined sugar. To date I’ve managed to find a handful of recipes that help satisfy an urge for a sweeter treat. I’ve tried making energy balls a few times and last week opted to try carrot cake energy balls. There are just a… Read More

Getting Back On Track

The aim for 2018 was to sort this and my photography blog out and at least for the first couple of the weeks of the year that was on track. Since then it’s been pretty much downhill as I’ve ended up back in the hotseat and in front of a computer for what feels like… Read More

Focusing On The Year Ahead

The problem with being a part-time blogger is that missing one week can quickly become one month and so on. And that’s been the case with OLD and my photography blog (jasondale.co.uk). So to try and be a tad more organised I’ve merged the two blogs. The intention is to be more proactive in terms… Read More

Attack Of The Crohn’s – Part 5

When I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease back at the end of December 2015 I was told during my first consultation in March 2016 that I’d undergo regular check-ups. The consultant suggested that these check-ups would take place every six months or so. As it happened my first “six month” check-up actually took place in… Read More

How The One Thing Saved Me

I’ve just returned from a three day stay on Skomer. If you’re not aware, Skomer is an island off the Pembrokeshire coast and it is the home of loads of Puffins. Access to the island is limited but you can stay overnight – perfect for getting extra time to photograph the Puffins. I was on… Read More

American Playboy – The Hugh Hefner Story Review

Mention Hugh Hefner to pretty much anybody and they’ll immediately conjure up images of a man surrounded by beautiful ladies at the Playboy Mansion. However, there’s a lot more to Hefner judging by the “American Playboy – The Hugh Hefner Story” series on Amazon Prime. Set over 10 episodes, this docu-drama gives us an insight… Read More

When Life Knocks You Down – Do A Burpee!

Just over a year ago I walked into my neighbour’s garage for my first ever personal training session. In the past, just the thought of exercise was more than enough for me plus with a lean frame – or skinny beanpole look – I never actually felt unfit or the need to be fitter. In… Read More
