Easter Sunday evening at Ogwen valley, Snowdonia, Wales.

Moody shot of Tryfan. Of course, it rained and I get wet. I did not mind as I’m quite pleased with this shot.

Have you been to Ogwen valley? Let us know below!

Exploring the landscapes in central Snowdonia

Although I’ve been to Snowdonia many times before, I have never visited landscape around Blaenau Ffestiniog. The main goal of the trip was walking around Stwlan Dam and disused slate mines. This part of Wales is known worldwide for the slate and disused mines are pretty much everywhere.

(Almost) A non-photographic trip

Wales, Snowdonia November 2017, 7:30am-ish. Chris has just parked the car and I’m putting my walking boots on. Rain is gentle and it looks like it’s not going to stop soon. Great. Where is the 80% chance for a cloud-free summit which was promised by the weatherman?

Welsh 3000ft Project

Welsh 3000ft project.

15 mountains in Wales are higher than 3000ft. Some people can do all of them in one single walk. But not me.

I have started this in 2009 not knowing, that I have actually started the project. I climbed the Snowdon in 2013 and officially started my Project Welsh 3000. (more…)

Soundlands project

CWM Idwal Snowdonia National Park
CWM Idwal Snowdonia National Park

It came to me as a nice surprise. Have been contacted by people behind Soundlands project.

When I was announced as a winner of British National Park competition 2012 my winning picture was published in various publications and over the internet so that’s how they found me. But what is Soundlands?

Soundlands is offering an opportunity for sound artists to create a new sound artwork as part of the Bangor Sound City project. Two successful artists will be selected to create an installation or performance for the city of Bangor, North Wales, and Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia. The works may be original or re-worked for the new context but must not have been previously shown in Wales in any form. They will be shown between June and July 2015.
