The wreck of the Helvetia

Wreck of the Helvetia, Rhossili Bay, Gower peninsula. Really worth a visit, it’s a bit of a steep walk but it’s worth it when you get there! We went at the beginning of February so pretty much had the place to ourselves. I made this animation as we had the camera on a tripod! The light changes quite dramatically from the beginning until the end. The sky was really dark when we arrived but then after a while got a lot brighter. Should have stayed til sunset, Doh!

Snow – Red ballgown

We waited so long for the snow to come to take these photos. We had the idea for ages, had the dress, made the paper roses but the snow refused to come!

When it finally did which was last winter we got to take our photos…

Winter frost

Frosted mushroom

We woke up to the first hard winter frost this morning.

So happy that I went outside early this morning because if I hadn’t I would have missed this beautiful frosted mushroom!

So I grabbed my camera and some macro lenses and went to take photos of it, it was absolutely freezing and I did have to lie down to get the angle I wanted. Luckily I was by the backdoor so I stole the doormat to lie on!
