Friday Lens Affair #63

Typical Welsch Landscape, Wales

It is Friday again. Weather is getting better and traveling in Europe slowly becomes attractive again. :)

Even though I have lived in London I never travelled much in the surrounding countries! Big mistake which need to be fixed! But before lets have a look…

This week I’m featuring Karl Delandsheere with his amazing photography from Wales. Karl is self-educated photographer and he loves to share his knowledge on his Hobography Blog. To learn more or just to admire great photographs follow him on Twitter and Facebook.

Picture Story: Welsh Landscape, Wales

For me, Wales has always been a dark and rainy place somewhere in the UK with a rugby team. A prince. And Tom Jones.

It’s only after meeting a Welsh man during a train ride that everything changed. He was so passionate about his homeland that I had to look for some pictures on Google. And a couple months after, I was in Pembrokeshire with my girlfriend, a couple of friends and our dog.

Wether you like hiking or landscape photography, Wales and especially its coastal path has everything you could dream of. And if you’re a bit crazy, try coasteering. I just loved it (when I understood I wasn’t going to die).

This picture was shot on the coastal path near Trefin on our last day of holidays. The whole place was covered by the golden light of the sunset which made this gorgeous Welsch landscape even more stunning.

As it was the first time I left cities since I committed myself to photography. I learned a few things. The more obvious is to pack light! I was carrying nearly all my gear all the time and had to catch up constantly as my friends kept walking while I was setting up for my shots. Hopefully, one of them was pregnant so I didn’t need to run too much!

  2. Beautiful photograph!

  3. Beautiful photo! It’s a bit unexpected of the image of Wales I had imagined. I think I had the same thoughts as you when somene mention Wales. I’m glad this proved me wrong.

    • This is stunning! Maybe everyone is always overlooking Wales! We are always imaging beautiful landscape of Scotland and Ireland!

  6. Your running around and constantly catch up with the restm paid off – a beautiful capture:) Had to smile – when are the Scots and the Welsh not passionate about something? It’s in their blood!

    It looks beautiful! I’m going to the Pembrokeshire part of the Welsh coast in September, so I’ll look forward to seeing more views like this!

    The picture itself tells the whole story of the place. Very relaxing and good for meditating.

    This place, based on your story, has a lot to offer. And I must say, it’s a travel destination to visit and have enjoyment into. Thanks for sharing.

    • I’m not sure if it has a lot to offer, but those kind of views are more than enough for me! I was sold from the very first look at this picture.
