Doors open at 6.30pm, hope to see you there! 🙂

Rain, rain, rain.

Nothing but rain all this weekend, so no chance for any decent outdoor photography. So here’s a quick post of a shot from January this year. This was a 1 hour nighttime exposure of Penmon lighthouse. The Earth’s rotation during a long exposure like this shows in the trails that the stars make in the sky. Polaris, the North star is just out of shot top left and if you line up your camera to face it, all the other stars in the sky will appear to circle around it. The orange/pink colour in the sky is ambient light from streetlights in Llandudno and Anglesey.
Hope you all had a great weekend 🙂

Just for fun…

My dog Jake and I took a quick trip to the beach this evening, me for some windy weather photos, and Jake, well, just to get wet I think. Like most dogs he loves the sea and makes it his goal to get as wet as possible just before we leave for maximum car-seat soaking impact. Mission accomplished Jake! 🙂

Pure bouncing joy 🙂

and.....pose.

Just for sheer comic expression 🙂

Introducing…Nancy Yvonne, 7 days old.

Today we finally got to meet the beautiful Nancy Yvonne. Just 7 days old 🙂 What a well-behaved baby! She slept almost the entire time and was the perfect model. Was a real pleasure to meet you Nancy 🙂

Rhosneigr Watersports

Yesterday morning started off very wet, and despite being all ready and loaded up to go and enjoy the Threshing day in Amlwch, we decided to give it a miss once we got there and saw how wet and muddy the field was.
Instead we decided to go and shoot some windy weather images, and the best place for that? Rhosneigr!
Here’s a few from yesterday…

 

This surfer couldn't find the right spot to get going!

Dave Holdsworth – Woodturner

I just want to take a moment here to say a huge thank you to Dave Holdsworth, a very talented woodturner and good friend who is based in Penysarn, Anglesey. His work is absolutely beautiful, and tonight I went to collect a gorgeous bowl that he has made for me to use as a prop for future shoots.


You can see more of Dave’s fantastic work here…

Whilst I was there his wife Claire very generously offered me the loan of this beautiful chinese pail.

A big thank you to both of you, both items are gorgeous and I can’t wait to use them 🙂
