Black & White Seaside

Yesterday we had a bit of a roadtrip, visiting a few places in north Wales. One place where we stopped and took photos was Tywyn, where we had a wander up and down the seafront. It didn’t feel very summery as it was very windy and chilly. I was wrapped up in jumper and coatContinue reading “Black & White Seaside”

Blue Sky

No rain today! It was very cold though. I spent quite a long time outdoors as my daughter was at a Show Jumping competition, and then later we went for a walk. My fingers and toes were getting so cold! But it was lovely to see some blue sky for a change 🙂 This imageContinue reading “Blue Sky”

Cloud & Wind Time-Lapse

I’m not at work today so I decided to do some more experimenting with time-lapse. This time it was daylight which is helpful, and I had some cloud moving across the sky which makes it a whole lot more interesting. I actually did this through the living room window, which means there are a fewContinue reading “Cloud & Wind Time-Lapse”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

My favourite photos of the sea tend to be calm soothing photos like this one. I know waves can look dramatic and exciting, but I prefer calm and soothing … drifting away into the horizon. Of course, being me I also have a tendency to get distracted by smaller things at the seaside, like theseContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea”

Aberystwyth Castle

Today we had a little wander round Aberystwyth while we had some time to spare. We walked round the castle and along the seafront a little before it was time to go again. I liked the look of the castle ruins against the beautiful sky, and I’ve used HDR Efex Pro to pull together 3Continue reading “Aberystwyth Castle”

Dramatic Dunes

About a week & a half ago, Bruce and I went to Ynyslas sand dunes which are just up the coast from where we live in mid-Wales. As you’d expect, we had the cameras out and I took a fair few photos, but when I looked at them back at home, I was a bitContinue reading “Dramatic Dunes”

HDR Attempts

Bruce inspired me to have a go at bracketed shots and HDR and it really is quite fun. You can end up with a totally unreal shot that looks like a painting or you can tone it down to just accentuate reality and get more detail than you would normally get. Really cool stuff eitherContinue reading “HDR Attempts”

Peaceful Beach Views

We went for a little trip to Aberaeron yesterday – a town down the coast road from Aberystwyth – and enjoyed a sunny (but windswept) walk by the sea around the harbour. I took lots of photos, but these ones are my favourite calm, peaceful photos of the sea, the beach and gulls flying. ItContinue reading “Peaceful Beach Views”

Cors Caron in Spring (sort of)

A couple of days ago we went for another visit to Cors Caron. I’ve shown you photos of it in winter and in summer, and now we have spring … well, we would if it really was properly spring! At least these photos are sunny, and the ponds were only a little bit icy thisContinue reading “Cors Caron in Spring (sort of)”
