Photo post, or tips and ideas for photography, interspersed with the odd bit of equipment review too.


Peace at Ynyslas

With the bank holidays over I headed out for an early morning stroll around the dunes at Ynyslas. It’s good to see that the Ringed Plovers are nesting here again and that the nature reserve wardens have fenced off a few areas in an attempt to give them some peace and quiet. There wasn’t much...

A Bugs Eye View

One nice thing about having the garden under control is the fact that whilst feeling ill with Covid I’ve at least been able to sit in the garden without an over-whelming urge to do some work on it. Everything is tidy and doing well so I’ve been able to just sit and chill. It’s not...


Sunrise at Ynyslas

Thought I should share a nice photo of the sunrise over Ynyslas. Looking East towards the rising sun with the beach behind me. As you can see, it’s not a terrible place to live, even if this was the last bit of sun we saw for a while! It’s been raining pretty much the whole...

Dramatic Sunset

Just a couple of photos of a fairly dramatic sunset from a late afternoon stroll on the beach. You can’t ever have too many sunset photos.


Golden Hour at Ynyslas

I only just managed to get a bit of a walk in today before it got dark. It did mean that I was treated to a sublime sunset as I did so. First Aberdyfi was glowing in the golden light ahead of me. Behind the sky was aglow and reflecting on the unusually calm waters...

Wandering Around Ynyslas

It was a chilly start to the day today. Minus 2 degrees Celsius with a heavy frost. Back Pain I didn’t sleep much last night thanks to my back pain. I don’t know what’s wrong with it but it feels like a typical compressed disk type pain and there’s little I can do to make...

Snowy Scene

Just a quick snowy scene from the weekend – with a nice wintry filter too.

Tuesday Morning Sunrise 2

A Tuesday Morning Sunrise

It’s not looking too bad out there for a Tuesday morning in December. It’s 8am, the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station is reading 1ºC and there’s lovely sunrise. There’s a decent surf rolling into the beach and it’s all overlooked by a thin crescent moon and the bright light of Venus. Lovely!

Walk Home 1

The Dreary Walk Home from School

Morgan doesn’t have a set way of getting home from school. Sometimes he meets Anna and I in work and gets a lift home. Other times he gets a lift with a friend. Sometimes he gets the bus to Borth and then I pick him up from there. Other times he’ll get the bus most...

Photos From Home @ Ynyslas

The snow melted today and the sun came out so I couldn’t resist a little stroll around Ynyslas. Sometimes it’s easy to take where you live for granted but doing so when you live here would be a crime, so here a few photos from home at Ynyslas.
