Photography has been on the backburner for me recently and the poor quality of my photos is testimony to this. I am really lacking motivation to take photos. Not least because like most people, I haven’t been anywhere exciting for the last 6 months.
Having moved into a new flat and Nadine using some annual leave to do so, we spent a couple of days in South Wales – Nadine, being a Dutchy hasn’t visited Wales before so we made the drive west for a flying visit, stopping by in Cardiff on the way.
This photo was taken underneath the old RNLI house on the beach at Tenby made famous by an episode of Grand Designs… I nearly lost my camera to the sea as the tide was coming in whilst getting a long exposure shot!
Compared to England, Wales felt as though it was only just emerging from its lockdown with even the capital city a virtual ghost town.
We stayed at an Air B&B in Tenby which was actually fairly busy. We had decent weather but not the unbearable heat that South England was facing in the same week.
We returned on a very hot day via the Brecon Beacons, climbing the highest peak in the area; Pen y Fan. It was exhausting but worth the hike for the views.
So, not quite the plans we would have had for the summer holidays of 2020. I am so looking forward to being able to go abroad again not least because the term ‘Staycation’ is possible the most jarringly overused term of the year.
