Abstract shooting at the Sea Zoo

Whilst in Wales, we paid a return to the Anglesey Sea Zoo, fast becoming one of our regular haunts.

To be honest, we didn't do much in the way of photography, but did end up getting some slightly more abstract shots around the place.

At Llangollen

May saw us take two consecutive trips to Llangollen, once for a Scout camp, and the following weekend for a model railway show.

We took the Scout group on a trip on the Llangollen Railway, and naturally we got a few shots in whilst we were there.

Some nice DMU action around Llangollen station.

A week later, we were back for the Garden Railway show.

I've covered that in more detail on the model-making blog, so here's a token shot of the (very good) event.

We decided to enjoy the sunshine with a break down to the town, via the station, for an ice cream.

View over the river towards the station.

We didn't stop for much in the way of railway photography this time, mainly because this was a Wedding special, and the main station was a bit busy.

Surprisingly I worked out this is the first railway photography I've done since the KWVR Gala; I'm going to have to make an effort to get a bit more done now the nicer weather has arrived.

A busy May; Cox Wood, Wrexham

Blimey, May turned up to be a busy month indeed.  Several open calls and exhibitions entered, two articles sent off for publication, and multiple shoots over multiple weekends away.

Kicking things off where we started May, and a Scout Camp to Cox Wood, near Wrexham.

Obviously, we were mainly there as Scout Leaders, but there was an opportunity for a few photographs of the area one evening, when there was a particularly interesting sky.

More to follow from May, and quite a variety of shoots and projects.
