As I’m currently back in Wales, every evening I try to head on out to the mountains with my camera, to have a break from my computer. Here’s a couple I’ve taken this last week:
The first is of the fantastic Llyn Nantlle. I was really lucky to capture this – after driving like a fool in the new van to try and capture the great contrast between the mountains and the skies, I only took one photo, and the sun sank really fast behind the clouds, and after hanging around for a good 30 mins, there was no sign of it ever coming back. But I was really happy with the result.
The second if the view from the summit of my favorite mountain – Mynydd Mawr, looking over towards the Nantlle Ridge. The lake from which the first image is taken from can be seen in the Valley below.
Here’s a very short video clip I’ve created, of a test footage on my project that I’ve been planning now for a few months.
In it, I try to combine my hobbies, Mountains, Photography and Animation. I think the test came out ok. There’s a few mistakes in it, that I can clearly see, such as the quick zoom in about half way through the video, and other minor stuff, but overall I’m quite happy with it.
The project will take a long time to complete I imagine. I’m going to keep it a secret until I finish it, but it’s nice to see that the test came out as I kinda imagined.
For this, I pointed my camera towards Mynydd Mawr, located the centre marker at the summit, and took a photo. All the settings were on automatic (P) – so that needs to be adjusted for my next run. I then paced out 10m, and shot the next photo. This was done all through the ridge from Trum y Ddysgl towards Y Garn on Nantlle Ridge, about 1km:
