I had been hoping to get back to some of the Welsh slate mining areas and continue shooting, but I have not been able to thus far. My shoulder is still not in the best of shape, but is on the mend at least. I won’t be entering any weightlifting challenges anytime soon, but I can tote a camera just fine. That’s the most important thing, of course!
Looking at the unfinished series as a whole, one of the difficulties I am facing is the number of images that I already have. I can see that this project is going to be a real challenge to edit. That said, if I am able to diversify and deepen it as I hope to, the process may suddenly become a lot easier. I hope.
Anyway, for now, here are a couple of photographs that I took on my second trip to the area (about 20 miles from the first location) to give you an idea of how different they are.
The light in Snowdonia is never predictable in Autumn, which is why I love going at this time of year (see second photograph). You really can visit the same location half a dozen times and have remarkably different experiences.
….and one more from the first location:
There’s an itch I have not yet been able to scratch with this series and I’m curious to see what develops. More to come.
