Landscapes and Post-Industrial South Wales

Stuart enjoys taking great photos and uncovering the stories behind them.

His main photography project is Merthyr Road - a look at the history and the legacy of the industrialisation of the South Wales Valleys.

Solar Cells

To finish the week, here’s a set of solar cells, spotted beside the lighthouse on the Brough of Birsay up in the Orkneys. I was surprised at the patterns hidden in the cells; I think they’re beautiful.

Wooden Slats

This week’s theme is another collection of different textures, and to kick it off, here’s a close up of some wooden slats on the outside of one of the barns at Avebury in Wiltshire.

They're Everywhere

To finish this week’s wallpaper, a shot of the vividly orange flowers that you’ll find all over the mainland of Orkney. They’re in the towns and villages. They’re out in the countryside. They’re everywhere.

Seeking The Sun

There’s something other-worldly about these flowers, standing on their own as they seek the sun.

Purple Against The Pale

I love colour contrasts, such as this shot of these purple flowers against the sea of very pale stalks of the plants.

A Wall Of Green

This week’s theme is all about plants that have caught my eye when out and about.

I’m probably very guilty of posting many different variations on this type of shot, but I hope you don’t mind :) One of the reasons I switch to Canon is because I prefer how it sees greens, and I think it makes a nice wallpaper behind a desktop of icons.

The Fan

This week’s theme is all about plants that have caught my eye. To start off, here we have an extreme close-up of a fan of leaves, as seen outside Salisbury Cathedral.
