As Requested

Waterfall off Llyn Ogwen Smooth

As requested by Alison, a re work of a shot I took down, I wasn’t quite happy with it, this is much more to my liking and the balance feels just right.

It was very windy and a little perilous  as there is a drop behind where I was stood on a slippery rock, wind almost gale force and the waterfall at full throttle….Still


What a location, going back in 2 weeks time to spend a day there, cant wait..

hope its to your liking Alison



How We Suffer For Our Art!


Tongue firmly in cheek title! you may laugh but boy did I get a soaking for this one, behind me a 9′ sea wall and the sea already knee deep just lapping above my wellies…then I got hit by this and it was game over for the night. I made the shot then grabbed my tripod hoisted it above my head just as the main wave hit me up to my midriff….

Now I don’t know what women feel when hit by freezing cold water about their nether regions but as a man I can tell you the pain was quite alarming to say the least…I wonder if they do neoprene boxer shorts for photographers? now there’s an invention…better patent it quick .

The shot itself hopefully imparts the ferocity of the sea and it was extremely windy. I like to think that if I was going to go as it were this would be the way to take me to Tog’s heaven, but I was quite a  wussy and legged it after this shot..lol
