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.

Towards Pontypridd

A Great View

This week’s theme evolves around things up in the sky.

Spotted this paraglider, flying over Avebury, enjoying the amazing view of one of the world’s great neolithic sites.

Soaring Above

I’ve got plenty more photos to share from our Easter break in Snowdonia, but I thought it’d be good to have a change of theme and celebrate the sunnier weather with a collection of shots of things in the sky.

To kick things off, here’s someone soaring above the magnificent neolithic stone circles of Avebury.

Project 25×9, because some photos deserve a wider perspective …

Barn And The Rhinogs In Snow

To bring the week to a close, here’s a scene from just to the north of Harlech and its railway station. Spotting this from the car, there was no way I could carry on until I’d grabbed a shot showing this barn with the Rhinog mountain range in the background.

There’ll be another 25×9 shot on the blog tomorrow, and I’ll be back on Monday, probably with some more photos from Snowdonia. Have a great weekend!

Railway Line And Snowy Mountain

I couldn’t decide which photo I prefer – this one, or yesterday’s photo of Harlech Railway Station taken from the main road. Both have their strong points, so I’m going with this version of the shot for today’s wallpaper, and I’ll let you decide which one you like the most.

Harlech Railway Station

Harlech Railway Station lies on the plain below Harlech town and the world heritage castle, with the main road around Harlech and down to the beach cutting across the single track that leads up from Barmouth. It was particularly deserted on Easter Sunday, giving me plenty of time to safely grab this shot from the road.

Horse And Mountain

Today’s wallpaper continues the Easter in Snowdonia theme, and is another superb guest photo by the wonderfully talented Mrs H.

If you look closely at yesterday’s wallpaper photo, you can just make out this horse on the near horizon. I shot that photo full-frame, which limited how much I could pick out just the horse, but Mrs H was using a crop-sensor body, which allowed her to get much tighter on the horse than I could.

Easter Sunday In Snowdonia

Continuing the theme of Easter in a snowy Snowdonia, here’s a lovely shot taken from the front of our hotel on Easter Sunday, just as we were checking out.

If you’re thinking of booking a stay in and around Harlech, I highly recommend staying at the Maes-y-Neuadd hotel, especially if (like me) you suffer from a food allergy. It’s a wonderful place with lots of character and fantastic food, and they did a fantastic job of making sure that they served up food that I could safely eat. We’ve been there a couple of times now, and we’ll definitely be going back again at some point in the future.
