When Castell Coch is too far away to shoot….

Hi there – I drove up to Castell Coch near Cardiff yesterday and managed to not get a decent shot of the castle. But I did shoot two or three nice woodland scenes. This is just a three minute video which you might like. If you do, a “like” in YouTube really helps the channel.

Now, back to editing my pictures from Venice.

St Ives Harbour at Dawn

After quite a few grey days, the forecast for the next morning was great, so at 04:20 I set an alarm and went down to the harbour for some blue hour and sunrise photography. I was pleased to find the tide was out but there was still some water across the harbour. This meant that the boats were not afloat (and therefore liable to move on the water during long exposures), and the sunrise was a treat.

Dawn in Lowestoft

We spent the weekend in Suffolk. We couldn’t get on a preferred campsite so we ended up in a budget hotel for a couple of nights. Yesterday I got up at 4am and headed to South Beach in Lowestoft for the sunrise. I was great to feel the sun on my face, the breeze in my hair and listen to the sea as it settled on the beach before retreating once again.
