Being outdoors is a big passion of mine and photography goes hand in hand with that. From the rugged coast to the rolling hills and epic mountains, I have it all on my doorstep and can often be found in the water or up a mountain.
Growing up on the Llyn Peninsula, I spent most of my time in the water. Whether it’s a cold winter morning or a warm summer evening, there’s nothing quite like it.
As an avid surfer and keen mountaineer, I spend most of my free time walking and climbing in the hills and valleys of Snowdonia; searching for waves along our breathtaking coastline.
Sunset on Castell Y Gwynt
“Without a doubt my favorite mountain in Snowdonia is Glyder Fach and one of its more prominent features is Castell Y Gwynt, a towering mass of broken spires of rock. I have thousands of photos of it in all conditions but this one is still a firm favorite. It had been a crystal clear day and a warm walk up in the sun. As we sat near the summit cloud started to fill in from the coast and up the valley below. Before too long most of the surrounding peaks were engulfed in thick clag but we managed to somehow stay just above it. As the sun set the cloud around us turned a bright orange. The light was just incredible.”
Crib Goch Under The Stars
“Crib Goch is one of Wales’ busiest mountains so if you want it all to yourself it requires some careful planning. There was a small window of good weather, light winds, hardly any cloud and fresh snow so I met up with a friend for a night-time traverse of the ridge. Perfect conditions and not a soul in sight!”
Nantlle Ridge and Yr Eifl from Yr Wyddfa
“One of the finest views in Snowdonia on a hazy evening is looking southwest from the top of Yr Wyddfa. This was one of those warm spring evenings that have you sweating on the way up but as soon as you stop moving and the sun starts to go down the temperature plummets.
“After setting up camp just off the Watkin path I headed up to the summit for dinner and to watch the sunset. Usually, I try and keep things light and only bring one lense when camping but I’m glad I had my telephoto with me for this one!”
