Snowdonia – It’s all about the light
I have just returned home from Snowdonia in Wales, having been on an excellent, inspiring and very enjoyable workshop lead by Andy Beel FRPS and David Mills FRPS, together with three other participants.
The workshop was called – ‘It’s all about the light’ and it couldn’t have been a more apt description. We we were incredibly fortunate with the weather. Apart from some overnight rain we were out and about all week, stayed dry, and towards the end of the week it was quite simply wall to wall sunshine; not a cloud in the sky and very mild given the time of the year. This did mean that occassionally we had to work in high contrast conditions, which is not always ideal for photography, but my philosophy is that you make the best of what you are given, and who could complain when you are surrounded by such a truly beautiful landscape.
Selection and post processing of the best images now begins, but this may run for many weeks and probably months, given that I only have a limited amount of time to sit in front of a computer screen. As we discussed on the workshop it can be a good thing to give this time, and come back to the images later when you may see things differently. That’s not usually my style but with so many images to consider, it may have to be this way out of necessity and not out of choice.
For the time being here is one image taken by the shore of Llyn Dinas.

Hi Alan a lovely shot very well seen and presented – a classic of its type. I will probably run the workshop again so lets hope for more stormy skies for better mood and atmosphere. David will be pleased you have promoted him! Regards Andy
Thanks Andy – If you do run this workshop again next year I would certainly be interested – and yes, some story skies would be great!
This image is beautiful, I love the reflections. A truly stunning part of Wales too, I’ve visited many times since being a child. You’re very lucky, I don’t think I’ve been with sunshine yet!
Thanks Haylee. I was very fortunate with the weather although we were also hoping for some stormy skies – maybe next time.
