There’s something about the light here in Wales that is irresistible to photographers. In Australia, where I’m from, the light is intense and pervasive. In Wales, the sun is much lower in the sky and, in the cooler months, throws deep shadows with a watery, evocative light. But of course it’s also a land of some drama. I lived in Aberystwyth for several years and watched as rising sea levels battered the promenade with alarming frequency. The tidal swing is so great that the ocean appears passive and calm one day, then ruthless and furious the next!
