Day Out: Brecon 25th Jan

Postby Richard Olpin » Mon Jan 07, 2013 4:54 pm

Just dropping a heads-up here. Myself and James have pencilled in Friday 25th Jan for another day trip down to Brecon, looking to so some more waterfalls and landscape work. So, if this sort of thing appeals, and you're up for a day in Wales, there's room for a couple more in the car..

Too far for me to hike to. Both in terms of milage/time and walking down and back. However, keep posting invites like this as I may be able to catch up with you in one place or another. Good luck to all who go.

This is one of those times that work really does suck. I don't get Fridays off so will look at who is off and might be able to swap. Will let you know soon :)

Aye, sorry G, problem of course is that Brecon is definitely an all-day trip and with my college thing on wednesdays my only free day for big trips out during the week now is friday so at the mo that's my photography day.

Looking good weather-wise for the end of the week. Really looking forward to this one.

I spoke to James and he's suggested visiting the other set of four falls first as we've not been to those before and there's much less walking involved in those too..

Woo... getting excited now..

The forecast is rain, but I spoke to James and we've decided we don't care. It was forecast rain last time too and we had an excellent day out. And I figure that some of the most dramatic shots happen in more extreme weather conditions so we're going to go for it whatever the weather!

And today's purchase...

Can't wait!

Forecast is looking a bit more promising now. Though it still shows rain, it's not til later on with a chance of 'light' rain from mid-afternoon, getting heavier later on. So if we're aiming to get there first thing we should have plenty of good photo opportunities..

Excellent! Really looking forward to it again. Last trip I learnt much and it was a great day out. I know a lovely pub next to the lower falls for lunch. If Lady G comes I will do naked waterfall shoot just for her!!!! . Is that convincing or scaring her away? lol

I think we'll have to book a minibus for all the girls if you do that James...
