I'm lucky enough to travel a lot but I also aim to understand a place in some depth. So I like to find out about the local history, sociology, wildlife and local arts. I prepare for a trip by looking up photos of the famous sights, they're usually a good guide both about the local visual interest and also a warning of what has already been done or over-done.
I try to use the tools of modern photojournalism and photography to communicate how I feel about a place. You’ll see that I have used Portrait, Street, Interior, Historical, Abstract, Landscape, Historical, Wildlife, Phone-camera and Selfie genres at different times for specific effects.
Dawn over Snowdonia in North Wales; this view is looking across the village of Rhyd-Ddu towards the rounded summit of Moel Hebog (782 m.). My hike before breakfast took me 45 minutes up the Snowdon Ranger Path to a crossroads at about 380 m.
Snowdon (1085 m.) stayed clear after breakfast except for some wisps of mist, viewed from the pass at Ffridd Ucaff, just up from the rails of the Welsh Highland Railway, the 1 ft 11 ¹⁄₂ in narrow gauge heritage railway running between Caernarfon and Porthmadog.
And the Afon Glaslyn, the river Aberglasyn at the Pass of Aberglasyn.
