Places to go and things to see

Intro

Seeing new places and discovering something new has always appealed more to me than anything else, I don’t like the term ‘Holiday’ as it suggests relaxing on a beach to most. To me a holiday is a chance to explore new places, get lost and discover different cultures and landscapes. I like to keep a journal of the places I’ve been and places I’d like to go, I do have a lot to add here from previous trips so keep your eyes on this space.

Singapore & Sydney City Photography

This is a bit of a different post from the usual landscape photography that I publish. In September I took a trip to Singapore and Sydney, I wanted to get out with the camera as much as I could while there. I have to admit I didn't get as much chance as I'd hoped but...

Landscapes from Waun Fach, Brecon Beacons

Waun Fach is one of the highest peaks in the Brecon Beacons and is the highest peak East of Pen y Fan. Located just South of Talgarth Waun Fach is easily accessible and on a clear day the views are spectacular, or as I found out even on a misty day they can be equaly...

An evening on May Hill, Herefordshire

May Hill is located between Gloucester and Ross on Wye, Herefordshire and is protected by the National Trust. You can drive pretty much within half a mile from the top and stroll up from the car park. I headed over to get some pictures of the sunset over the Brecon...

A summer’s day in the Brecon Beacons

So it's mid August and the weather is fantastic, where better to spend the day than on the mountains in the Brecon Beacons. I planned a pretty straight forward route and headed over to the Beacons with a friend around lunch, the weather was just amazing in all...

Summer Woodland and Waterfalls. Brecon Beacons, Waterfall Country

With a sudden feeling that summer is quickly passing by I decided to take a trip down to the Brecon Beacons Waterfall Country yesterday, it was a stunning day and with a load of rainfall last week I was hoping to get some good shots of the waterfalls. I picked up my...

Summers Evening in Elan Valley, Rhayader

Elan Valley is a little gem hidden in the Welsh countryside and best known for its dams and reservoirs, it's a places that pretty easy to get to and no matter which direct you come from the drive is just spectacular. Making the summer evening I thought I would take a...

Llyn y Fan Fach, Brecon Beacons. Photography and walk.

Right in the middle of the west Brecon Beacons National Park is a mystical lake, high up in the mountains, the Llyn y Fan Fach lake sits at the foot of the Black Mountain. Even without the folk tales the lake has a sense of eery silence to it, almost entirely...

Snowdon, Y Lliwedd and Pyg Track Routes

Earlier in January I took a short break in North Wales and went up Snowdon. Last time I went up Snowdon was 2014 in August and it was a little underwhelming from what I remember, apart from the congestion on the tourist Miner route the whole thing was a little too...

Isle Of Skye, Scotland. Part Of Ben Nevis Trip

Carrying on from the Ben Nevis during my Scottish trip I planned to travel up to the Isle Of Skye, it is a place that I've wanted to visit for quite some time. After a couple of days in Fort William and a successful hike up Ben Nevis we set off on the short trip from...

Ben Nevis in Autumn

Ben Nevis has been on my list of places to go for the last year, it would be the last of the three peaks in the UK to summit after going up Scafell Pike in February and Snowdon in 2014. I set a date to go up to Scotland at the end of October for 4 days. I set off from...
