Cornwall and views from the South West Coastal Path https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2021/6/cornwall-south-west-coastal-path-lizard  A few photos from our week walking along the South West Coastal Path on the Lizard in Cornwall. The walking was just fantastic and the views and industrial heritage along the way just amazing. If you've walked along the Cornwall coastline you're definitely missing out, it's just wonderful.

A Chester sunrise wander https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2021/5/chester-photos-sunrise-river-dee A few Chester photos from my sunrise wander working on the LIFE Dee River restoration project. The colours were almost autumnal in the warm, mist-filtered sunlight, I just love being out first thing in the morning (5.00am), even in a busy place like Chester you have the place pretty much to yourself which makes the time even more special.

North Wales sunrise photography on the River Dee near Bala https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2021/5/north-wales-sunrise-photography-river-dee-near-bala  A 4am start yesterday to catch sunrise in North Wales on the River Dee at Llandderfel near Bala, working on the fantastic restoration project LifeDeeRiver being managed by Natural Resources Wales. Rather than feeling like a spring morning though it had a definite sense of autumn... -2 degrees and mist swirling above the River Dee as the sun started to rise.

Day 2 of the LifeDeeRiver project - Erbistock to Chester location scouting https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2021/3/lifedeeriver-project-Erbistock-to-chester Today was my 2nd day working on the LifeDeeRiver project with Natural Resources Wales and today’s plans was to scout possible photo locations between Erbistock and Chester. As before lots of mileage to cover today so the alarm went off early again and I’d decided to catch the sunrise at Bangor on Dee. 
 

On the way the cloud cover looked a little heavier than had been forecast, nothing unusual there, so I wasn’t overly optimistic of catching some morning colour in the sky but one thing you learn as a landscape photographer in the UK is never say never!

I arrived plenty early again and after a short wander around the riverside it was quickly apparent that the view from the bridge over the River Dee was the best option, the sun was rising behind the church so the composition from here definitely worked. Camera setup it was just a waiting game, with fingers crossed. Fortunately my luck was in and some light made it through the clouds to add some colour to the sky.

A day exploring the River Dee on the LifeDeeRiver project https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2021/2/river-dee-lifedeeriver-project-north-wales  Yesterday was my first day working on the LifeDeeRiver project with Natural Resources Wales, with the main plan being to find the most photogenic stretches of the Dee between Carrog and Bala. With lots of ground to cover I decided an early start was definitely a good idea so the alarm was set and sunrise at Carrog decided upon.

Driving through the darkness of early morning small pockets of mist appeared and disappeared which got me a little excited that a misty sunrise  in the Dee Valley at Carrog might be awaiting me, what a bonus for my first visit to this location that would be. I arrived nice and early, a good 40 minutes before sunrise, and the river was shrouded in mist, swirling around the quaint buildings making up the small village of Carrog.

I walked the viewpoints and decided on the bridge across the Dee as my first shot, the Dee was in partial flood and ripping through the valley so the noise on the bridge, shrouded in mist, was a little eerie as I awaited the sunrise. As things turned out the mist was pretty persistent, hovering around the village, swamping the rising sun and shrouding the Berwyn mountains in the distance. Patience paid off though and as it started to lift I took this shot of the wide flow of the River Dee passing below the village buildings of Carrog. A 3 stop ND filter just lengthened the exposure to flatten out the ripples in the river... my first photo for the LifeDeeRiver project sorted and the rest of the day to walk the riverside views heading towards Bala.

A cloudy day in Snowdonia - but 5 minutes of magic at sunset https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2020/12/snowdonia-snowdon-horseshoe-sunset-glyderau-mountains  A cloudy day was forecast today but they can make for the most interesting days out withe the camera so I decided I'd have a wander on the lower slopes of Snowdon. The cloud was rolling through the valley of Nant Gwynant and looking pretty spectacular as it drifted slowly through the Llanberis Pass below me. Snowdon summit played a game of hide and seek all day, and won, never revealing itself from behind the layers of cloud.

I took the chance that sunset might give me a chance of a decent photo and my patience was rewarded with just a few minutes of magic light. The sunset looked pretty good over the Snowdon Horseshoe but looking behind me, over the peaks of the Glyderau mountains was even better so I manged to get shots of both before more cloud rolled in and it was time to make my way back down the Pyg Track and head off home.... all in all a day full of atmosphere, great to be out in with the bonus of a couple of nice photos!

Stunning sunrise above snow-capped Tryfan Snowdonia's most majestic mountain https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2020/12/tryfan-sunrise-snow-north-wales-mountain-snowdonia  I've been trying for a snow-capped sunrise photo of Tryfan in Snowdonia for a few years now but the conditions have never quite combined to produce the image I'd wanted...until this morning. With snow having fallen on the Snowdonia peaks the night before the weather forecast for early morning showed a small window of opportunity before more snow and hail moved in, I had to give it another try so the alarm was set for 5.45am and down to Tryfan I went.

The viewpoint of Tryfan isn't too high, around 600ft, but in winter it's a paddle through constant mud and water to get there... if you're going make sure your footwear is waterproof!! The snowline was just below the viewpoint alongside the Afon Lloer which made footing at the side of the waterfall a little tricky, as did the 30mpf gusty wind which seemed to be having fun blowing the contents of the waterfall frequently onto the camera lens and me! The first few minutes after sunrise didn't look overly promising, cloudy and no hint of sun but the winds worked in my favour soon after with the appearance of some breaks in the cloud cover. Another 15minutes later and a little bit of magic happened... the rising sun broke through the cloud to light up the sky in suble, orange tones. It only lasted for 20 minutes before the snow moved in but what a 20 minutes, I'd waited several years for this winter sunrise photo of Tryfan so fantastic to get the shot I'd hoped for at last... in fact not just the one but several.

If you'd like to see the photos you can find then in the Snowdonia photos gallery, for larger views of the Tryfan sunrise photos below just click on the individual image:

A misty morning of stunning reflections on Bala Lake in Snowdonia https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2020/11/misty-morning-reflections-bala-lake-snowdonia  A day chasing the winter morning mists today and Bala Lake (Llyn Tegid) turned out to be the ideal spot with not only mist shrouding the surrounding mountains but some rare reflections on Wales's largest natural lake. I arrived mid-morning and spent a while admiring and photographing the atmospheric view. I decided to hang around until late afternoon and headed to a favourite spot of mine to grab some photos of the mountain views of Arenig Fawr, one of Snowdonia's less frequented mountains.

A photo day on the stunning Traeth Llanddwyn near Newborough on the Isle of Anglesey https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2020/11/traeth-llanddwyn-newborough-anglesey-photos  An early start to arrive at the stunning Traeth Llanddwyn near Newborough on the Isle of Anglesey. Sunrise combined with high tide and strong winds which made taking photos both dramatic and challenging. The cloud over the Snowdonia mountains created some amazing sunburst whilst the strong winds saw the waves crashing against the usually tranquil golden sands. Having begun the morning near to Abermenai Point as the tide receded it made Llanddwyn Island accessible so I headed in that direction. Walking along the beach the wet sands glistening in the intermittent sun early on producing some fantastic reflections which got better as the afternoon started to fade. The original idea was to stay around on Llanddwyn island to photograph the sunset but the heavy cloud cover returned and the sun faded from view... time to head home and review a highly enjoyable days photography, rather rewarding as it was the first time I'd ventured onto Anglesey for over 6 months. This year hasn't been the easiest time for photography, or much else, let's hope 2021 gets better!

Anyway enough of me rambling on here are the photos from the day, all are availble to view in my Anglesey photos gallery too.

Adobe Photoshop 2021 problems - this might be the solution https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2020/11/adobe-photoshop-2021-problems-the-solution So the new version of Photoshop is out and there's quite a few new features added. For landscape photography I guess perhaps the most interesting one, depending on your ethics, is the "Sky Replacement" tool. 
Whilst I'll probably not use it, Photoshop have certainly made it easier than ever to drop in a more interesting sky, although whilst the process might be easy matching the light and "feel" of the foreground remains challenging.

Just a heads up before you upgrade though, the new version is more demanding on your PC, especially your graphics card. If your current one is over 4yrs old it's unlikely to be up to the job. You'll soon know as you get the dreaded error "Could not complete your request" and whilst you can disable GPU support Photoshop runs painfully slow so basically factor in around £200 for a new GPU... I'm just awaiting delivery of mine!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nz0qLMmdOg4

If anyone does find the need  of a new graphics card I can recommend the Gigabyte Geforce GTX "Mini".... not nearly as expensive as the top gaming cards but still runs Photoshop comfortably, has 2 HDMI ports if you run 2 monitors and also it's fine if you only have a 300W PSU, no need to upgrade that too as you would with the higher end graphics cards. It's also pretty small so should fit in pretty much any case, just needs 2 "knockouts" where the PCI-E slot is.

Stwlan Dam to Cwmorthin slate quarry - the industrial heritage of North Wales https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2020/7/stwlan-dam-cwmorthin-slate-quarry-industrial-heritage-north-wales Another wander through the amazing industrial landscape near Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales. This time I climbed to Stwlan Dam and crossed over to Rhosydd and Cwmorthin slate quarries. The cloud dropped on my head just approaching Rhosydd which creating some fantastic atmosphere amongst the old ruins... although a little eerie at times if I'm honest. If you enjoy industrial heritage this really is a "must see" area. You can find details of Cwmorthin in my photo location guidebook, Photographing North Wales.

Nikon lens choice for landscape photography - a difficult decision? https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2020/7/lens-choice-for-landscape-photography-north-wales-nikon  

It's definitely a dilemma choosing what lenses to use for landscape photography, zooms, primes, focal lengths, how many to carry.

The temptation is often to want to cover every single focal length so the obvious option would be a 24-70 zoom and a 70-200 or 300 zoom. You're then missing the ultra wide though so you might want something like the Tamron 15-30 f2.8... and then you think I'm missing a prime, so you buy a "nifty 50". perhaps a 50mm 1.8... the problem then is twofold:

1. You want to carry them all with you... that's some weight & bulk!

2. When you're out with the camera you end up spending far too much time deliberating which lens to use.

So keeping lens choice simple can be the best way... for landscapes you generally have time on your hands so changing lenses isn't an issue which means prime lense are a great option... they're usually lighter, sharper, less bulky and have less distortion and vignetting. I usually just carry a 20mm, a 45mm and then for the longer end do throw in a zoom, a 70-200F4... F4 as I don't need the speed of a 2.8 which is a bulkier/heavier lens and actually has just as good image quality for landscapes where you're generally shooting at small apertures.

Coincidentally this guy has pretty much the same setup as me, worth a watch of the video... note too he mentions that limiting the focal range of lenses you carry can actually help with composition too!

Llanberis Lonely tree - a moody day at Llyn Padarn in Snowdonia https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2020/2/llanberis-lonely-tree-llyn-padarn-in-snowdonia-photo Me & the wife had a night in Llanberis, Snowdonia last night and with the weather warnings decided to stay off the mountain tops and do a more sedate walk around Llyn Padarn. We passed the famous "Lonely Tree", which never is by the way, and to be honest I wasn't going to take a photo as the clouds were looming and wind blowing. We watched the clouds flying over the peak of Snowdon for 5 minutes or so and then a small break just allowed some fleeting sun through so I thought I'd see whether a black & white photo might work... didn't want to take the more obvious shot just including the tree so included the "Lonely Bench" too 😃 Be interested to see what you think?

Rhosneigr sunset - Isle of Anglesey https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/12/rhosneigr-sunset-anglesey-photos  I spent the end of the day on Saturday awaiting the sunset at Rhosneigr on the Isle of Anglesey. The wind was blowing and the air cold and just a couple of brave souls were in the water, a wind surfer and a kite boarder... rather them than me, my 4 thermal layers were struggling to keep me warm on dry land!!

A stormy day at penmon Lighthouse on Anglesey North Wales https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/12/stormy-day-penmon-lighthouse-anglesey-north-wales  Had a drive around stormy Anglesey yesterday starting at one of my favourite places on the Island, Penmon Lighthouse (Trwyn Ddu). The winds and very high tide created some dramatic looking waves so I hung around for a few hours to enjoy Mother Nature's show. Here are some of the photos from the morning including a black & white conversion of the stormy seas.

Autumn wander around Snowdonia - Moel Siabod sunrise Penmachno Roman Bridge and Swallow Falls https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/10/autumn-swallow-falls-snowdonia-moel-siabod-sunrise  Had a day wandering around Snowdonia this week to see how the autumn colours were looking. I arrived early to catch the sunrise with the original plan being to take another photo of the famous lonely tree at Llanberis but the cloud was shrouding Snowdon summit which looked to block the chance of sunrise light.... a queue had already formed at the tree too so I decided to head over to the Pinnacles above Capel Curig instead, hopefully sunrise behind Moel Siabod would be decent. Fortunately it was, some lovely autumn sunrise light!

Next stop the popular waterfall, Swallow Falls on the outskirts of Betws-y-coed and the autumn colours were really looking bright here the sun having risen into the sky lit the woodland up nicely and really made those colours "pop".

On to a spot I'd not visited with the camera before, the so called Roman Bridge near Penmachno. A stunning little gorge on the Afon Machno with the autumn colours really adding some nice detail to the shot too. I spent quite a while here as the light was changing, direct sun on the water making exposure a bit tricky.

Final stop of the day was a riverside wander from Betws-y-coed up to the Miners bridge. I've photographed Miners Bridge several times and this trip didn't offer anything new so I concentrated on the woodland itself. My Irix 15mm lens came in really handy for a slightly different photo of the pine trees.

A sunset and sunrise at Moelfre on Anglesey, North Wales https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/10/sunset-sunrise-moelfre-anglesey-north-wales-photos  I had an overnight stay at the lovely coastal village of Moelfre on Anglesey this weekend so it was a shame not to try and photograph the sunset and sunrise. Sunset was pretty challenging, infact just a 5 minute burst of dramatic colour over the fishermans cottages although it was a pretty special 5 minutes. I caught a blue hour photo of the Richard Evans statue on the way back along the coastal path too. Sunrise was a bit more successful with the old lifeboat station providing the main interest. Kindly the local fishermen had left a few lobster pots on the beach to add some great foreground interest.

Photo editing and why it's useful - jpg vs raw shooting https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/8/photo-editing-and-why-its-useful---jpg-vs-raw-shooting Photo editing is one of those subjects that's often frowned upon, sometimes justifiably as results can be way off what the person taking the photo saw, but most times editing is actually an essential part of photography and the only way that you can capture the scene as you actually saw it. Even with modern advances in camera technology they're still some way away from having the amazing abilities that our own eyes have. Just to try and demonstrate this I've posted 2 versions of the same scene... a rather wonderful sunset behind Conwy castle in North Wales.

I shot this in both .jpg and Raw format.... just in case... jpg is the format that your camera/phone outputs to produce a finished image without you doing any editing, Raw however must be edited (it's essentially a digital negative).

Pretty much every camera's metering system is programmed by the manufacturer to try and protect the brightest part of a scene.. so on a landscape it's trying hard to keep those lovely sunset colours in the sky. So with this in mind the bottom image is the one I left to the camera (jpg), the top image is the one that I edited (Raw). Whilst my camera left to it's own devices did a great job of keeping most of the colourful sky you can see how dark the castle, the town and Conwy Mountain in the background look.. this isn't how it actually looked, by eye I could see much more detail of all those dark features.

That's why editing is an invaluable part of photography as shooting the top image in Raw format allowed me to edit it to much closer replicate what I actually witnessed, it really is pretty close to how my eyes saw it.

Modern cameras, and especially phones, have many inbuilt "auto" modes or HDR modes to try and cope with this situation and are doing an increasingly good job of it.... but remember the editing has to be done by someone, these days it's simply a choice of you either letting the camera manufacturer decide on the best edits and it being done inside the camera as you take the photo... or by shooting Raw, you making the decision instead and do your own editing.

The reason that many us now edit our own photos isn't that we want to create some weird, over enhanced image, it's that we like to think we'll do a better job of replicating what we actually witnessed. The camera manufacturer didn't have the luck to see what we did so can only produce settings based on what they think a landscape image should look like.... an impossible task as light and colour is ever changing.

Hope this made sense and you found it useful... I appreciate editing certainly isn't for everyone and in reality it isn't always necessary... most of my travel photos are taken in jpg. When the light gets challenging as in this photo though editing makes a really big difference.

The sun rose above Beaumaris Pier across the Menai Strait creating some wonderful light on the water and across on the Snowdonia Mountains.

I had my first wander around this place yesterday evening, I'll definitely be going back and it's certainly going to feature in the 2nd edition of my photo location guidebook, Photographing North Wales

North Wales photo locations - places to visit https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/4/north-wales-photo-locations  North wales has some great photo locations, here are just a few ideas you might find you want to visit the next time you're in North Wales....you might find my photo location guidebook, Photographing North Wales, useful too.

Llanddwyn Island, Anglesey

An amazing place on Anglesey with stunning views across the Menai Strait to Snowdonia. A "must see" on any trip to North Wales

Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia

My own favourite location for an easy wander in Snowdonia. Surrounded by stunning mountains on all sides Cwm Idwal is a "must see" Snowdonia location if visiting North wales

Castell Dinas Bran, Llangollen

The ruins of Castell Dinas Bran sit above the picturesque village of Llangollen in North East Wales and make a dramatic location to admire the views of the Dee Valley. The nearby Llangollen Railway, Pontcysytlle Aqueduct and the Horseshoe Pass all make this a special area to visit

Autumn is an especially good time for photography around Llangollen as the autumn mists often fill the valley floor.

Caernarfon & Conwy castles

Any visit to North Wales isn't complete without exploring an ancient castle or two and Caernarfon & Conwy are two of the best. Don't miss out on this amazing heritage

Llanddwyn Island sunrise photos - stunning morning on Anglesey https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/4/llanddwyn-island-sunrise-photos-anglesey-north-wales  Llanddwyn Island and Newborough beach on Anglesey in North Wales is a special place at anytime but when sunrise is as beautiful as it was on Friday it's on a whole other level of special. As luck would have it I was guiding a fellow photographer on a 121 photography workshop and I'd planned the sunrise start at Llanddwyn... it certainly didn't disappoint, infact I think this was some of the best light I've seen at Llanddwyn with gorgeous pastel colours and soft tones, what an amazing morning.

Lligwy beach sunset on Anglesey https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/4/lligwy-beach-sunset-anglesey-north-wales-photos  Lligwy beach on Anglesey, near the village of Moelfre, is a wide expanse of golden sands and a great spot for sunrise and sunset photography. I hadn't visited the beach for a long time so thought it was about time I did so on Thursday evening I arrived a couple of hours before sunset. Initially things didn't look promising, the sky was completely devoid of clouds and a gentle breeze was not helping my chance of any reflections in the sea water pools left by the outgoing tide. My luck changed however just 20 minutes before sunset as a rather photogenic cloud rolled in and the breeze all but disappeared.

We're just back from a couple of days based in Grasmere where the weather was barmy, these photos of our walk onto the Langdale peaks and around Easedale Tarn were taken on the hottest February day on record... we were walking in T Shirts and wondering if we needed to apply suncream, that doesn't happen often this time of year.

New photos of Winter snow in Cwm Idwal & the Ogwen valley https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/2/photos-winter-snow-cwm-idwal-ogwen-valley-tryfan  Following the recent snowfall here in North Wales I spent a few hours wandering around my favourite place for photography, Cwm Idwal. The snow-capped peaks of the Glyderau and Carneddau mountains looked stunning with their winter coats on, especially my favourite mountain, Tryfan.

North Wales photography locations - My top 5 https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/1/best-north-wales-photography-locations My top 5 North Wales photography locations:

Best Snowdonia photography location

Cwm Idwal in Snowdonia is definitely my favourite "go to" landscape photography location for mountain views and stunning vistas. Why is this you might ask, well for one the stunning views are accessible to almost everyone (no need to climb a 3000ft mountain) being located just a 20 minute walk from Ogwen visitors centre along a clear, well trodden path that leads you to the shores of the glacial Lake of Llyn Idwal. At Llyn Idwal you have 360degree mountain views being surrounded by the Glyderau mountains on one side, with the unmistakable profile of Tryfan, and the Carneddau mountains and the equally photogenic profile of Pen Yr Ole wen on the opposite side of the Ogwen valley. If you only have time to visit one scenic location in Snowdonia, make it this one!

Best North Wales coastal location

Llanddwyn Island on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey is my favourite coastal photo location. It's blessed with a touch of the magical. It has stunning views across the Menai Strait to the Llyn Peninsula and the peaks of Yr Eifl (The Rivals) and it's just a 25 minute walk from the car park at Newborough Forest along the long, sandy beach. It's the ideal location in North Wales for sunrise, sunset or Milky Way photographs. As a bonus too, if you're lucky, you might spot one of Anglesey's red squirrels.

Best North Wales Heritage location

North Wales has an abundance of photogenic heritage sites but my favourite has to be Conwy castle, in the medieval walled town of Conwy. The castle sits imposingly on the banks of the Conwy Estuary and is a great location for sunrise and sunset photos. It's worth paying the entrance fee to wander inside too as the views down the Conwy estuary are excellent. The medieval walls of Conwy itself are also full of photo opportunities so do make sure you have a stroll along them.

Best North Wales Industrial heritage location

As well as its ancient castles and houses North Wales was once the slate capital on the world and the scars of the slate mining industry are still evident everywhere you go. As Mother Nature continues to reclaim these abandoned quarries though they're becoming increasingly more popular with photographers looking for something a little different. By far the most popular location, and my own personal favourite, is Dinorwig slate quarry that dominates the nearby town of Llanberis. A stroll with the camera makes for a fascinating glimpse into a past era and photo opportunities abound whatever the weather.

Best Steam Railway

As well as its scenery North Wales is reknown for its numerous heritage steam railways than run along now restored lines. Talyllyn narrow gauge railway in Southern Snowdonia is my absolute favourite. It's the worlds first preserved railway and runs along the quiet but beautiful Fathew Valley on an old quarry line. There are several stops along the valley which give you the chance to explore some of Snowdonia's lesser visited gems including the impressive Dolgoch Falls and a short journey away, the stunning glacial waters of Tal Y llyn.

Blood Moon lunar eclipse and evening light at Portmeirion Italiante village in North Wales https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/1/blood-moon-eclipse-evening-portmeirion-village-north-wales  Portmeirion Italianate village sits on the North Wales coast and is a wonderful, unique location to visit. We were lucky enough to be staying a night in the Italianate village on the same evening of the 2019 Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse so we set an early alarm for 4.30am to watch this amazing event. We were blessed with clear skies so views of the eclipse were perfect. In the evening I also had a wander around the village during the blue hour to photograph the colourful buildings.... and just to finish a perfect trip I caught the sunrise too.

Dinorwic tunnels and Dali's Hole https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2019/1/dinorwic-tunnels-dalis-hole  Another wander around the incredible Dinorwic slate quarry above Llanberis in North Wales this afternoon. The light wasn't great so concentrated on detail shots, especially Dali's Hole with it's bizarre reflections and dead trees. Also came across one of the wonderful recent addition by artist "Mary Mary", quarrymen paintings.

Photography workshops in Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia - take a look at the stunning scenery https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/12/photography-workshops-in-cwm-idwal-snowdonia---take-a-look-at-the-stunning-scenery As many of you are probably aware I regularly run photography workshops in the Snowdonia National Park here in North Wales, infact I've been running them for nearly 10 years now and they're increasingly popular as more and more people decide to visit the area. The base for my workshops is Cwm Idwal, a stunning glacial valley surrounded by some of Snowdonia's highest mountains; the Glyderau range on one side and the Carneddau on the other. 

The glacial lake of Llyn idwal is one of the main areas where we spend our time. The North Wales weather means it's an ever changing location; you'll certainly never take the same photo twice. On calm mornings there are breathtaking reflections, winter brings snow-capped peaks and on more challenging weather days it's packed full of drama. It's an amazing place for photography.

As a bonus just a short walk away from the lake are some wonderful waterfalls, the finest of them is Ogwen Falls, the outflow to Llyn Ogwen. After rain the water thunders through the narrow tree-lined gorge whilst in autumn the colourful heather covers the surroundings. Look behind you from the falls and there's the wonderful view down the glacial valley of Nant Francon; late in the day broken sunshine creates magical shadows along its full length.

Hopefully these few words have helped you realise why I choose Cwm Idwal as my main base for Snowdonia group workshops, but just incase here are some photos taken in the area during the changing seasons and weather.

If you'd like to book on one of my workshops I still have availability for 2019, with all the details available through my website... here's a direct link

If you prefer a wander along a stunning beach in the light of early morning then my Llanddwyn Island/Anglesey workshop (new for 2019) may suit you better. Here's a link to that one too.

Conwy castle rainbows and night photos https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/11/conwy-castle-rainbows-night-photos  Had a wander around Conwy Castle on the North Wales coast this afternoon and had some wonderful luck with the weather. A heavy rain shower passed overhead whilst I was wandering around the inside of the castle producing some dramatic light and a stunning rainbow, one of the most vivid I've actually seen. After visiting the castle I had a wander around Conwy town in the "blue hour" which produced some nice shots from the harbour and medieval city walls.

Fortunately the Llangollen canal was pretty busy with canal boats so I managed to captured a couple crossing over Thomas Telfords famous aqueduct.

Dinorwic slate quarry above Llanberis - an evening wander https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/10/dinorwic-slate-quarry-llanberis-snowdonia-north-wales  Headed down to Snowdonia to catch the autumn colours but not quite there yet so I drove over to Llanberis and the fantastic Dinorwic Slate Quarry. Such a fascinating step back into Wales's industrial heritage, once the 2nd largest slate quarry in the world, now slowly been taken back by Mother Nature. Fortunately the evening light was kind with some great sunbursts over Llanberis and the lakes of Llyn Peris and Llyn Padarn.

Newborough Warren sunset & a Milky way shoot from Llanddwyn island on Anglesey https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/8/newborough-warren-sunset-milky-way-llanddwyn-island-anglesey A gorgeous sunset wander around Newborough Warren on Anglesey tonight photographing the warm rays of sun catching the golden Marram Grass in the dunes. I caught the last rays of the sunset from Traeth Penrhos and then wandered onto Llanddwyn island to wait out the Milky Way. The clouds were heavier than expected so the Milky Way played hide and seek through the night with just fleeting glimpses. The lights of the llyn Peninsula lit up the cloudy skies to look almost like a sunset shot, still a pretty special experience.

A night with the Milky Way at South Stack lighthouse on the Isle of Anglesey https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/7/night-milky-way-south-stack-lighthouse-anglesey-photos  Another night out under the stars photographing the milky way at South Stack lighthouse on the Isle of Anglesey. I arrived nice and early with the chance of a nice sunset and it didn't disappoint. Stayed around until about 2am when sea mist started to roll in which created some rather eerie light in the beams of south stack lighthouse just before the milky way faded from view.

Wonderful misty summer morning in Snowdonia today https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/6/misty-summer-morning-snowdonia-llyn-gwynant  A 5am start this morning and as luck would have it a rather nice one too. I arrived at Llyn Gwynant to find mist swirling around the lake so spent a little time watching the changing scenery. Next stop was Llynnau Mymbyr which also had some dramatic mist floating above the lake. What a great morning to be out.

A sunset trip to the Snowdon Horseshoe in Snowdonia North Wales https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/6/sunset-snowdon-horseshoe-snowdonia-north-wales  Another gorgeous evening tonight spending time in what's quickly becoming one of my favourite spots of Snowdonia. I had a wander up the Pyg Track from Pen Y Pass then onto The Horns. The views of the Snowdon Horseshoe are just stunning especially in the warm tones of sunlight tonight. Landscape selfies are all the rage these days so not wanting to feel left out I stood in front of the camera for a change. The views into the Llanberis Pass were pretty special too as the low light flooded the valley floor.

Cadair Idris - a fantastic mountain in southern snowdonia https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/6/cadair-idris-mountain-southern-snowdonia  Whilst in southern Snowdonia this weekend we took the opportunity to climb the fantastic Cadair Idris. It really is an excellent walk with amazing views all the way around... a "must see" location and a bonus that it's far quieter than the main areas of Snowdonia further North.

New gallery added to website: North Wales Milky Way & night photographs https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/5/new-gallery-north-wales-milky-way-night-photographs  I'm just starting to get more seriously into night photography around North wales so over the coming months I'll be adding more and more photos of the night sky including shots of the milky way. Snowdonia and Anglesey in particular have some excellent dark sky locations so it seems a shame not to capture more of them. I've therefore created a new photo gallery on my website, North Wales Milky Way & night photos so please do call back for a browse from time to time to see what new photos of the North Wales night sky I've photographed.

Thomas Heaton gives PHOTOGRAPHING NORTH WALES a nice mention in his Vlog https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/3/thomas-heaton-photographer-vlog-photographing-north-wales Popular landscape photographer and Vlogger Thomas Heaton gave my book PHOTOGRAPHING NORTH WALES a nice mention in his latest Vlog whilst travelling around the area. Unfortunately he left his copy back in Northumberland after having a good read through but I'm sure it'll come in handy next time he visits which he's certain to, the scenery we have around here brings everyone who visits the area back sooner rather than later.

Snowdon Horseshoe winter evening wander to catch the sunset https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2018/2/snowdon-horseshoe-winter-sunset-photos  I wandered up the pyg track towards Snowdon late yesterday and then turned off along The Horns hoping to catch a decent sunset. Whilst the light teased behind me on the summit of Moel Siabod the cloud was a little too heavy on snowdon drifting over the summit with just fleeting glimpses. Crib Goch was a little more accommodating

Snowdon Pyg Track winter wander - new photos added to Snowdonia gallery https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2017/12/snowdon-pyg-track-winter-snow-photos-snowdonia  An early start this morning to catch the winter sunrise from The Pyg Track route to Snowdon summit. The light lasted just 20 minutes until a blizzard moved in and covered the sun forcing a retreat to the Pyg Track café for a bacon buttie and warm up.

With the promise of the cloud breaking I stayed around Snowdonia until the end of the day calling at the Ogwen valley to take a photo of Tryfan and the snow-capped Glyderau mountains, the sun never materialised but a very pleasant end to a winters day just the same.

A snowy day in Snowdonia - new photos added to the Snowdonia gallery https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2017/12/snowy-day-snowdonia-north-wales-photos Snowdonia was looking awesome in a covering of winter snow today. I visited a few locations I hadn't been to for a while including the famous Swallow Falls in Betws Y Coed and the wonderful Miners Bridge. Obviously I couldn't miss a few mountain shots too so arrived at Tryfan for sunrise and ended the day there too.

Moody spring day in Snowdonia for my group photography workshop https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2017/4/moody-spring-day-snowdonia-landscape-photography-workshop Today was another of my Snowdonia photography workshops and the weather started out rather wet and moody. I arrived early in Cwm Idwal to have a wander myself and the rain was on and off. I was lucky to spot several of the local Welsh Mountain Goats roaming the hillside making some more unusual foreground interest with the misty backdrop of Pen Yr Ole Wen behind. Fortunately once the group had arrived the rain receded and the weather improved so we had some excellent moody light creating bags of atmosphere. Here's a selection of photos I too during the workshop.

New sunset photos of The Skerries from Carmel Head on Anglesey https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2016/5/sunset-photos-the-skerries-carmel-head-anglesey Wonderful night last night and as I was already on Anglesey having hosted a photowalk at Bull Bay for the Anglesey Walking Festival I decided to hang around for sunset. I've been meaning to visit Carmel Head in good light for ages so had a wander along the Anglesey Coastal Path to this dramatic headland.

121 photography workshop at Dinorwic Slate Quarry https://www.landscapephotographyuk.com/blog/2016/5/dinorwic-slate-quarry-photos-llanberis Sometimes as amazing as the mountain scenery of Snowdonia is the weather and light just don't play ball and big mountain photos just aren't going to work well...yesterday was one of those days. Out with Ian and Kath on their 121 we started at 5.00am at Cwm Idwal to cloudy skies followed quickly by heavy rain and haze..Dinorwic Slate Quarry to the rescue!! Even in poor conditions Dinorwig is full of contrast and texture, great at the moment too as the trees are bursting into colour looking fantastic against the grey tones of the slate
