Distant Burial Mounds

Looking across the landscape from Carreg Cennen Castle in South Wales shows one of two pairs of ancient burial mounds visible to the eye on a distant ridge of the Black Mountain.

This area on the edge of the Brecon Beacons is beautiful and has plenty of footpaths to walk, but as yet, I have not produced a StillWalks video here.

Windsor – A Place to Visit

I didn’t know what to expect when I visited Windsor. The only thing I knew about the place was that Windsor Castle is there. However, there is more to it than that and even on a dull day, it is an attractive place to walk around., have a cup of tea and see the swans on the River Thames.

iPhonography at Lliw Reservoir

Some alternative iPhone shots of Lliw Lower Reservoir. Having finished the new video collection, “StillWalks at Lliw Reservoir“, I recently had a walk there and did some iPhonography at the same time.

The photos were taken using the ProCamera app and edited in the PhotoshopExpress app on the phone and have also been posted on Instagram and EyeEm.

New StillWalks Video Collection

“StillWalks at Lliw Reservoirs” – This new collection of StillWalks videos looks at Lliw Lower Reservoir through all four seasons as well as a Spring walk to the upper reservoir. It also includes a short introduction.

Below is the introduction and a sample from the collection which is available here or can be bought at the  reservoir cafe on disc.

As with all StillWalks videos, the sounds are unique to the time and place of the walk. In the case of this collection, the location is the same in each video, albeit with a slightly different route taken each time. The sounds recorded, however, vary with the conditions and the acoustics of the surrounding landscape are affected by changing weather conditions to give different effects to permanent features such as flowing water or background ambience.

Why buy a StillWalks video or video collection?

 

Black and Blue

The abstract patterns of water in the River Morlais which runs through Troserch Woodland in Carmarthenshire, Wales.

If I had used these images, it would have been in the second StillWalks video I made in the Troserch area. The first was through the woodland (see below) and the other was walking from the woodland, across the fields by the river and back to civilisation.

Sepia Footbridge

I mostly work with colour images but now and then I find one that I think benefits from the monochrome treatment. I have a preference for the sepia effect but usually prefer to create this myself rather than use a ready made filter.

This footbridge is featured in the StillWalks video below – Troserch Woodland Walk – but not this shot of it and not in monochrome.

This monochrome (sepia) image is also featured in the Leanne Cole Photography’s Monochrome Madness blog post for today. Thanks, Leanne, for that – another great post 🙂

Old Wood

I don’t know how much, if any, of Troserch Woodland is ancient but it is a beautiful place to walk and the cycle of growth and decay is inevitable in all woodland let alone anywhere else.

Below are two more images that didn’t make it into the StillWalks video below – “Troserch Woodland Walk”

Woodland Walk Video

“Troserch Woodland Walk” is a StillWalks video I produced one early morning last Summer.  I was looking through the images from this production recently and found a number that I like but that did not make it into the video. I thought I would showcase them this week, so watch this space!
