Boardwalk – Sounds from Llyn Llech Owain

The sounds in my StillWalks are at least as important as the images. I particularly like the creaking movement of the raised boardwalk in “Winter Lakeside Walk”.

Here is a short clip (1 min) from the sound files for this walk plus the spectral display image and the boardwalk itself.

I will include the video itself in the blog at the end of the week but you can see it on the Winter Walks page of the website now if you would like to. If your internet connection is not very fast, you may have to wait for the video to buffer in order for it not to stutter – or you could always buy the download. See the Sales page for prices and instructions.

Winter Walk – Llyn Llech Owain

This new StillWalk in Winter from Llyn Llech Owain, “Winter lakeside Walk” is one where I caught the early birds  and the sunrise – not difficult when the days are so short.

I uploaded the walk just a week ago and it is one I really enjoy. I am going to put some photos from it on my blog through this week and would love it if people took a look at the video itself. Just click the link above or either of the images to go straight to StillWalks Winter Walks.

The StillWalks videos are free to view on a small scale but if anyone is interested in seeing any of them in full scale high definition, just contact me – the prices are on the website.

Galloway Sunset

The sun goes down on Galloway, SW Scotland.

It’s different every time. No matter how many times you see it, the sunset is never the same, and there is never any tiring of it!

The Coming Rain

The inevitability of getting poured on can be seen from some way off. Not a hurricane but dramatic all the same and allowing a little time to get to shelter.

No chrome effect on these shots, just the colour of the day! The photos I have posted  this week may show the wetter side of Galloway in South West Scotland but tomorrow’s will show another side to the story.

Awesome Light – Chrome Effect

These two photos were taken with my old Fuji FinePix compact camera which had a chrome effect setting (different to the b & w setting). I was playing around with it one day in Galloway, South West Scotland a few years ago but the effect you see isn’t so much the cause of the camera setting as the weather and light itself.

The Light Beyond

Two more photos from Galloway in South West Scotland. This changeable, unpredictable weather thing has been going on for quite a while . . . forever in Britain! These are from 2008.

Weather and Light

My recent Production Day post about how quickly the weather can change these days reminded me of some photography I had done a few years ago in South West Scotland. I guess any outdoor photography has an element of weather to it but these photos are quite a personal reminder of a place I love and don’t see often enough. These, amongst other images play across my large iMac screen as a screensaver in the background when I have to work on my laptop. They were taken on my old Fuji compact but are effective nonetheless.

More to come through the week. Also, visit The Ambiguity of Fences for some more images from my own Lliw Lower Reservoir production day.

Production Day

First it was on, then it was off . . . then it was on again! The weather, these days, is unpredictable. Last Friday when we went to do our recce for the latest production with the Sights and Sounds of the Countryside project, the conditions led us to postpone the following day’s work.

Heavy Weather

However, Saturday was dry, and not only that, almost all the snow had gone! So with a quick announcement on Facebook and email, we went ahead with what turned out to be a great production day, even though we were not able to cover everything required and will have to go back next week. Fingers crossed for dry weather again.

More of these shots can be seen on the project Facebook page.
