Bluebells are already well on the way but also behind a bit in their usual life cycle. Last Sunday was too cold for early May. Temperature dropped around freezing at dawn. It was mostly clear sky with only a few clouds. The previous evening I decided to break my photography deadlock and go for a short stroll.
New year, new resolutions. One of them is that I'm going to do more photography and update my blog content fortnightly. We'll see how it goes. :)
I had two days holiday left from last year so I decided to take them and go somewhere to shoot seascapes. Winter is the best time to visit the south coast of the UK. Most of the time both the Sunrise and the Sunset happen in the right directions giving perfect shooting conditions. And also not to forget that you don't have to wake up too early and stay up too long for that. But there can be a disadvantage, the weather. It can be rough sometimes. I don't mind the cold but can't take strong wind. Fortunately it wasn't windy at all this time.
I had a free weekend without my family at the beginning of August so I decided to go somewhere and have a photo weekend. I wanted to go to the seaside to take some seascapes. I can either go to Wales or down to Dorset, they are the same distance from home. The last couple of years I spent some time at the south coast, now I rather picked Wales. I wanted to visit the Gower peninsula where I’ve already been to but that wasn’t a photo orientated trip. This time I focused on it as a photography location.
Recently it rained a lot, the walkways got really muddy. That's why I haven't been on a walk for a while now. But I definitely wanted to capture the autumn colours. The last weekend was just perfect for photography. I still didn't go for a morning walk but I've been to some really nice places.
Sunday morning was gorgeous, there was no wind and the sky was almost clear. The temperature was about 9 °C. Perfect circumstances for mist. I picked the same route for the first half of my walk. But this time in Ascott I turned South.
