Bonfire Night In Swansea

Friday, November 06, 2009 Adam Tilt 1 Comments


Another year and another bonfire night was upon me. Finding all of the local firework displays a bit overcrowded I headed up to the top of the hills at the back of the house. Fortunately I had my camera with me as the nearby electricity pylons and the orange glow from Swansea provided a dramatic landscape. There is something very satisfying about capturing a scene that takes some thought and is beyond the normal point and shoot landscapes that we all usually take. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Buzzard over Pontarddulais

Sunday, November 01, 2009 Adam Tilt 0 Comments


This weekend has pretty much been a blow out due to work commitments leaving me stuck in front of my computer. I did however manage to escape for a few hours this afternoon and walk up Gopa Hill at the back of my house. I was pleased to see a flock of Long Tailed Tits flitting through the trees but didn't spot any of this autumns Redwings. I hope to find and photograph some in the next week or so as by all accounts their numbers are increasing rapidly in the area. However I did see a Buzzard just in time to catch a picture as it soared overhead. It isn't the greatest image ever taken of a Buzzard but it is the first and only one that I have managed to capture. Something about the composition also appeals to me as you get a feeling of the motion and behavior of these birds as they scour the landscape for prey.
