  1. well life has got in the way but today was my first outing with the camera of 2020... didn't go far but it was good to get out ..this is at broad pool on the gower peninsular
  2. i saw an image posted somewhere of the clarewen dam in the elan valley....i thought it was awesome but i've never been able to find it again but i wanted to my own twist on it so i've been 4 times in the last few months but for the pic to work the dam had to be overflowing and every time i went up there it was dry even though all the other dams were overflowing like hell ....on the last visit it was finally overflowing....but only just so i had to make do ..last pic is of the caban coch dam
  3. right lets try again ..checked the weather and knew that storm atiyah was coming in so i decided to try porthcawl ...been there many times over the years but this was the first time with the camera plus the first time in a storm ..it was a hell of a spectacle ..i was very lucky as my camera tripod blew over and banged the lens on the floor...it was the old 18-55 kitlens and it caved in the filter thread but it still works so im not too bothered..thank god the camera is ok and it wasnt my 11-18 lens as i'd be crying my eyes out
  4. Thanks... Might as well delete this and I'll start again tonight when I get the chance... Thank you
  5. I posted this from my phone and the 4 pics aren't showing..... Aaaaaagggghhhh.... Do me a favour and delete this thread..... I'll post a new one from my laptop tonight
  6. Well the weather said there was a storm coming ... Boy were they right ... It was my first visit to porthcawl in a storm... What an amazing spectacle
  7. early start this morning ...drove down to wisemans bridge near saundersfoot. it was another happy accident day 3 of these images were part of bracket sequences that leap out at me in lightroom . it was nice to get out as i was smothered in a cold and have a totally knackered knee so i couldn't walk far
  8. The stones are Pentre ifan burial chamber
  9. last weekend i went down west wales for the day ...i was in a 10 stopper kind of mood so most are with that on ....started in amroth for the sunrise then over to pentre ifan burial chamber then on to ceibwr bay...i got a bad knee at the moment and climbing on the rocks at ceibwr bay put paid to any exploring so i will be back to explore more in a few weeks
  10. That old hard drive has come up trumps again.... Found these from 2013... Funny that I hadn't processed most of these... Funny how your eye for a pic changes over time..... From crosby beach and the another place statues.... Handy I was only living about few miles away in Liverpool so it was a local haunt for me... If I remember rightly it was my first outing with my Sony 11-18 DT lens.... Its now my go-to lens
  11. still searching that old hard drive ...found my favorite image ...i got this as a canvas on my wall ..was at the malpas yesteryear rally back in 2010 and found this car in the autojumble ...quick chat to the vendor and he let my put mr jones in the car..i had to hit photoshop hard to remove the stall in the backgound ....which i am crap at so it probably stands out a mile ..we had a pair of dog sunglasses which i'd left in our car...i so wish i'd had them and put them on him ..it would have made the pic even better
  12. Was looking through a old hard drive this evening.... I found this... Taken way back in Feb 2010...i my opinion its the best pic I've ever taken... It was a once in a lifetime moment... I think I was on a meet with the talk photography forum... The tiger walked through the Bush and looked straight at me... I had my old sony a200 up against the chain link fence... I'll never forget checking the screen and seeing what I got... A moment in time captured forever
  13. Revisited the elan valley today... My friend said she'd drive and wanted to test out her new camera and lens..... Canon 6dmk2 and 24-105 L series lens... She's only been using a dslr since July... Gotta say I was a bit envious... But im happy with my Sony a68 and have no plans to upgrade... So onto the pics.... The colours up there this week we're amazing.... Much better than last week... Shame there was no reflections so tried to be a little different
  14. A friend that I've been helping learn photography wanted a trip out today so we went to mumbles for the sunrise..... And later in the day we went to the elan valley.. It was happy accident day today... Put the tripod on the floor on its lowest setting.. Put the camera on it ... It wasn't pointed in the direction I was gonna take pics... Switched it on and glanced at the screen..... Wow... A composition I hadn't seen was on the screen... Had to take it didnt I took a few others as well
  15. Just had to try and take a pic this morning... It was an amazing sunrise
