Every year for the past few years a few of the UK based light painters meet up in North Wales. There has been about five or six of them now and these images came from my favourite adventure.
We all pitch up our tents in Llanberis and make our base there. We always pick the same spot as it provides beautiful views over to Dinorwic slate quarry and Snowdon. I love it there. It's nice and central for many interesting spots and only a short drive to Anglesey. I can't wait for the weather to improve and get one arranged as we always have the best time.
The photo above was created at Llyn Padarn and the lonely tree there. Kim brought her box of costumes and her friend Natasha who likes to model in return for gin and smokes. It was a full moon on this evening and there wasn't a breath of wind. The moon lit the scene and I lit Natasha with a beauty dish from just outside the frame. Kim then placed her torch behind Natasha's hand and turned it on and off for the starburst.
Here are a few more shots from the same visit and some more of the amazing places we shot nearby.
Last shot taken on Sunday morning. Once the moon had dipped below the trees at Llyn Padarn we headed up to Dolbadarn castle. Phill whipped was drone out and provided some extra light. I'm super keen on the effect from this angle of lighting.
A superb end to a superb couple of days away.
Cheers to Phill for providing the beautiful light on this one.
I took myself off to a tunnel by the ammo Dump on Saturday morning. I made the mistake of having a coffee on the way in. I only lasted an hour then had to return to base to drop the kids off at the pool. Bad times.
One from Dali's hole looking out into the Milky way from a trip there last year. I think this is my first Milky way shot which is surprising as I generally shoot at night. To be fair coming from Manchester it's not really surprising at all.
