    The walk home this evening

    It's not been bad at all. I can only remember three or four indifferent evenings in the last two months!

    The walk home this evening

    I've been out filming most of the day and conditions were a bit 'meh'. On my walk home I noticed some nice stuff going off in the distance but didn't think it would reach me. Once I got with 500 metres of my house I realised I'd. better be quick! The track to Siabod - Snowdonia - Wales by...

    Lockdown landscape photography

    How's everyone coping with this lockdown situation, especially regarding scratching our photographic itches? I'm very fortunate in that I live in a very photogenic area but my hillwalking and mountain photography has been curtailed. The upshot is that I have been spending time exploring my...

    A sense of scale - Snowdonia

    The figure on this occasion wouldn't take much work to remove but when I'm on Lliwedd it's all about capturing the scale and the only way to do that is to have a mate stand on one or other of the two peaks. Also, I include them a lot because I regularly supply the outdoor magazines with images...

    Snowdonia sunrise

    I love this, Nigel! One of the problems with photographing on Crimpiau at this time of year is that the heather is very dark which makes for drab foregrounds. The frost certainly negates that problem!

    A sense of scale - Snowdonia

    Hello folks, long time no post! I effectively took the summer off from photography as the season doesn't inspire me and has always left me frustrated. This year after putting the camera away for a few months I feel that my mojo has returned and my enthusiasm for taking photographs is as it was...

    THE TENTH fotoVUE photo-location guidebook is about to be published

    Hi Nigel, it was great to meet you today. I am notoriously grumpy at the best of times when at the cafe but the last two weeks have been especially difficult as I am having a spot of bother with anxiety issues. Seeing you sitting there with the book gave me a little boost and was a timely...

    First shot of the year - Snowdonia

    Hello folks. I haven't posted in ages and due to getting my book finished I felt my photography suffered a bit last year. I aim to put that right in 2019. Last night I was guiding a group up Moel Siabod for the New Years Eve celebrations and didn't get down until 3am this morning so felt a bit...

    I find the UK boring for landscape photography. Please change my mind!

    Very well put @Stuart Mc, I agree with every word ;) By the way, I did visit your gallery to say hello on my recent trip to Lakeland but, of course, it was a Monday! I was really disappointed but had a good look through the window, fantastic :)

    I find the UK boring for landscape photography. Please change my mind!

    You're putting words in my mouth, Steve. I merely offered my opinion without suggesting what others should or shouldn't do. If the novelty of the new is what some crave in their 'work' then so be it. That said, I stand by my view that a truly meaningful connection with landscape can only be...

    I find the UK boring for landscape photography. Please change my mind!

    I am passionate about Britain's landscapes and more specifically those of Snowdonia, my home for the past five and a half years. It would take a photographer with very little imagination or vision to find what we have in these islands uninspiring. Am I the only one who finds the concept of...

    Misty Lane - Croesor

    These old Welsh lanes are magnificent places, full of atmosphere and ghosts of the past. ;)

    Misty Lane - Croesor

    Hello folks! I had a quick blast up Cnicht yesterday evening but the clag descended as I ascended so no views were had on the mountain and no photographs either. However, on the way down the mist was very low so I snapped a quick shot of my mate Dave. I wished I'd had more time to work on...
