THE VALE SERIES
The Vale of Glamorgan lies at the southern tip of Wales in the United Kingdom. Known for its dramatic coastline of secluded coves, steep cliffs and amazing views it's a beautiful spot to visit at any time of year.
The yellow-grey cliffs on the Glamorgan Heritage Coast (which stretches between Gileston and Ogmore-by-Sea) are unique on the Celtic Sea coastline as they are formed of a combination of liassic limestone, shale and carboniferous sandstone/limestone.
They were formed 200 million years ago when the whole area lay underneath a warm, shallow, equatorial sea at the start of the Jurassic Era
Shot during a cold crisp day in late September.
I love the colours in this image and the lovely soft light that wraps the whole scene.
THE BENDRICKS, BARRY
To get this dramatic composition I had to place my tripod in the fast flowing river.
I used an ND filter to create some movement in the sky and the water. The green moss also helps add some dimension to the image as well as some lovely colour.
THE BENDRICKS, BARRY
I captured this image just after some storm clouds passed overhead.
I knew it would make a great monochrome image. I used a 10 stopper ND filter to create a 2 minute exposure as I wanted to emphasise the fast moving storm clouds.
It was only after I captured the shot that I noticed the cloud movement created a pair of eyes in the sky.
JACKSONS BAY, BARRY
This image was shot during the early hours of a May morning. I had the image in mind for a long time before the conditions were finally in place.
We had a high spring tide that covered most of the steps down to the beach and I shot a long exposure image that created this dreamy scene of the steps disappearing into the sea.
This image was published in the national Professional Image Maker magazine and also awarded a coveted "Gold" award by the Societies.
The offices were between 1897 and 1900 and bear the date 1898. The development was part of the industrialist David Davies's scheme for Barry Docks and was intended to regulate the substantial coal exporting trade which had grown to world prominence in the town.
