Seemed a bit breezy at home, but that wouldn’t stop me, I was more worried about the cloud cover. Trouble was it was blowing a gale up in Llithfaen as I set off for Yr Eifl! I managed to make it there though and was amply rewarded! There was a mist over the horizon allowing masses of light rays which made for a great backdrop, with fast moving clouds creating a dance of light across the landscape all around. If only I’d had a little more time I’d have loved to make it down to the crusher house and explore the interiors of some buildings on site, but never mind, I’m more than happy with what I came away
Sorry, sorry, sorry! I am ashamed I have been away for so long. Basically I bought a project car – meaning all the days where I’d normally be out with a camera were taken up wielding tools and swearing at my new purchase, then I damaged my old ankle injury again which further hindered things, but anywho, the car is in the paint shop and I’m back to hobbling about with the camera!
I managed to make it to Maenofferen in Blaenau in March, though I clean forgot to post about it here (another sorry!), followed by an unsuccessful venture in Golwern due to manky weather and then just the other night I decided to head over to Trefor to watch the sun go down, so here’s a selection.
As always, prints are available at http://www.quarryscapes.co.uk
Something I try and do every day, but rarely is it as effective as this. This is the beac at Trefor. At first glance it’s a typical seascape – but delve deeper and you have 3 Granite quarris and an Iron mine present! Don’t belive me? Well in the background are Tyddyn Hyweland Tan y Graig quarries, in the mid distance is the jetty of the Eifl quarry and the area on the right was the stock yard. Immediately behind the camera is the Morfa Iron mine which is said to run out under the sea, and did at one time use the Eifl quarry tramway too.
So there you go, there’s industry everywhere!
