Even after 40 years it never gets bor­ing

Caernarfon Herald - - CHARITY FOCUS -

IT’S been a year spent trav­el­ling around Wales cap­tur­ing all kinds of events.

The Na­tional Eisteddfod in Cardiff, which was held across var­i­ous city venues, was a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence this year.

Weather caused de­struc­tion in Holy­head, sand storms on the Llŷn penin­sula and ex­ten­sive wild fires.

Of course, the beau­ti­ful scenery pro­vided a fan­tas­tic back­drop to many of my pic­tures and re­minds me how for­tu­nate I am to work here.

After more than 40 years as a news pho­tog­ra­pher, this job never gets bor­ing and I am look­ing for­ward to 2019 in the knowl­edge that there will be many new ex­pe­ri­ences.

1) Iron Man at Zip World, 2) a stunt horse at Llan­beris, 3) Gwynedd grass fire in the hot sum­mer, 4) Holy­head ma­rina dev­as­tated by Storm Emma, 5) Mike Peters at Snow­don Rocks, 6) the Na­tional Eisteddfod and 7) a sand storm at Aber­soch.
