I’ll update you in full tomorrow, with some words to a company these photographs, but for now know that these are just a smidge of the views you can see from my mums house.
The hill in the distance is know amongst our close family as “Mary’s Muffin”, named by my grandmother, who is still with us daily in memory.
**** update ****
Yesterday we headed off up to Llanferres to visit my mum, for her birthday.
We had a really nice time, and during the evening I set my camera up in the back bedroom and grabbed some shots of the views.
The view reaches down a valley and culminates in a glimpse of the Clwydian Range, it looks amazing!
The light was a pain though, it kept changing; and it wasn’t technical issues that were a pain, but the fact I was at a social family event and kept “having” to sneak off and grab more shots of the ever increasing lighting changes.
It eventually came to a head after I’d captured all sorts of lighting streaming across the hills, then a rainbow, and finally the vivid moon in today’s shot. Though the light was still incredible, I made he call to call time on capturing it.
Learnings – A good learning from this, is to hold off a little more until the lighting is its absolute best, at times like this. I should have spent more time with my family, and just grabbed some shots right as the moon came out.
Still, hind sight is always 20/20, and at the time I didn’t know what was going to happen, so maybe the learning is to hold off and be brave, sometimes.
