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

Pirates Of Machynys Bay

Much of my photography is taken around the same area of Llanelli, Machynys Bay. It has some great sunsets and can be wonderfully dramatic, but it can get a bit samey and that means inspiration tends to wane at time. I’m pretty sure many photographers feel the same way about their own local areas. Whilst… Read More

Nitro Circus In Llanelli

On 17th June I was lucky enough to be an official photographer for the Nitro Circus event at Parc Y Scarlets, Llanelli. In case you’ve not heard of Nitro Circus it’s basically a bunch of guys and girls on various bikes and contraptions doing stunts. It’s all quite incredible and full of action. The bulk… Read More

The Icons Of Mumbles

On Saturday 7th May we headed down to Mumbles. The reason being was because Swansea Museum had tweeted that “Bristol Channel pilot cutter Olga will be racing her sister ships in a rare sprint in Swansea Bay. 7-8 May, 10am”. On looking at the website it was advised that the best place to see the… Read More

Brecon Beacons Puddleography

In the current issue (April 2016) of Digital SLR Photography there’s a lovely article about using puddles. Puddleography has it’s called “gives you an alternative view of your surroundings”. A lot of my photography uses sea water to reflect the skies so I quite like the idea of using puddles elsewhere. At the weekend we… Read More

Back On The Photography Blogging Trail

Eagle eyed readers will have noticed that firstly there’s not been many blogs for a while and secondly the site has had a name change. The latter is due to ‘’ moving on to new owners. As much as I liked ‘tog’ as a photography domain, the price was right and it’s sale paves the… Read More

Badger Watching At Dinefwr

Did you know you could go badger watching at Dinefwr near Llandeilo? No nor did I! I always thought that badgers came out at night and that it’d be too dark to photograph them but again that’s not the case. During the summer you can visit a special hide to watch the badgers in action…. Read More

Wales National Air Show In Swansea

Over the weekend it was the Wales National Air Show. This is a free event which takes place in Swansea and this year there were displays from The Red Arrows, Sea King Rescue, Team Raven and Tigers Parachute Display Team. Other planes on show included The Vulcan, Spitfires, Typhoon and Royal Navy Black Cats. Fortunately… Read More

Spanish Ruin Sunset

I’ve recently come back from a holiday in Spain so the next few blogs will probably be about shots taken during that time. Along with Jude, I spent a lovely week in a town called Calasparra, which is North of Murcia. It’s not your typical Spanish holiday destination as it’s not near the coast, but… Read More

Sunset At Sandy Water Park

The wonderful thing about photography is that sometimes you don’t need to go too far from home to capture a shot. On Sunday (5th April) the sky in Llanelli was looking perfect for a beautiful sunset so we jumped into the car with the intention of heading to Burry Port. However as we passed Sandy… Read More
