Yesterday another chance of a promising sunset lay ahead so I jumped in the car and headed off to Dunraven Bay. A well known and well photographed beach, like so many along the Heritage Coast, but one I'd never been to before. Somehow I couldn't get settled there so decided I'd head over to Nash Point once again to catch the sun setting. This place never seems to disappoint and is most definitely becoming a favourite of mine.

What a lovely morning! Warm fresh air, good company with lots of help and advice, and good ol' Welsh mountain views - great for a technical exercise on how to make and create a panoramic image. Here is my very first creation, made up from 5 images.

Here are a few images to show you just how 'lucky' I was.
On Friday 13th January we were promised a little bit of decent weather for a change, so I charged up my camera batteries and took a drive down to Penarth Pier. It was a glorious day and Penarth was buzzing with people enjoying the lovely sunshine and blue skies. Whilst grabbing myself a hot chocolate and a nice toasted sandwich from Nicola's juice and coffee bar, I sat down next to an adorable lady called Audrey (in the large pic below) who I am told was in school with Margaret Thatcher and although MT was 3 years above her she said she still remembered her well! Audrey was also kind enough to pose for me so Audrey, if you read this, thank you so very much, it was lovely to meet you and as promised your picture will be on it's way to you soon!
Yesterday I went out togging with a friend to a place that I've never been to before, a place I have seen from a distance many a time whilst driving along the M4 into Cardiff and one that is almost literally on my doorstep. Castell Coch meaning Red Castle is a 19th-century Gothic Revival castle and is built on the remains of a genuine 13th-century fortification. The building is chiefly known as a romantic folly supposedly....to read more and see my pics, go to my website and click on 'What's New'.
