I promised to continue the story of the day when I shot the Sunrise at Mumbles lighthouse. As it was still very early and the weather forecast told mostly overcast during the day I decided to visit one of the iconic trail of the Brecon Beacons, the Four Falls Walk. After a short stopover at Sainsbury’s I was on the road. It took me only 45 minutes to get to the car park. Unfortunately it was a pay and display car park and I didn’t have any coin with me. So I had to look for a different solution. Fortunately I remember seeing a small car park halfway there. Eventually I chose that one which was a good decision. The waterfalls were much closer.
Finally Spring has arrived. Last week we had three days with temperature rising above 25 degree Celsius. Nature was waiting eagerly for this. These unusual hot days boosted everything. You can see daffodils, tulips, shrubs and trees in bloom all at the same time. Bluebells and Wild Garlic started to grow and develop their flowers. It's been almost a year when I last time used my lenses for macro photography. After a long cold and wet winter I really wanted to go out to lie down in the woods and just enjoy photographing these small wonders.
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.
