I was lucky enough to have two full weeks off over Christmas. Plenty of time to relax.
The past few days of the holiday were spent in our campervan in a remote part of Pembrokeshire in sub-zero temperatures. Whilst it may seem a little barmy to pitch up in a field in January, it has its perks. There are few, if any other campers and you can have the run of the usually busy touristy hotspots. I of course had my camera(s) but it was a short stay so I only took a handful of photos. We had the pleasure of watching one sunset, that lit up the horizon in roaring pinky orange. The clouds broken and created a wonderful texture, whilst the beach, still wet from the receding tide, sparkled in the light.
I took the opportunity to try out a 10-stop ND filter in an attempt to get some milky sea shots and scudding clouds, but I struggled with the set up – it takes patience and experience – and so resorted to a few handheld shots. A bit disappointing but I just need to practice – I really have no idea how to use filters well.

St David’s Cathedral was a fabulous discovery for us. The Nave has the most beautiful wooden ceiling, a must see for any visitor. The rest of the church is
