Uplands Market – Saturday 31st May 2014

Will be at Uplands Market tomorrow morning (9am to 1pm) and for a change the weather forecast looks OK.  Plenty of food and craft stalls (over 60) and coffee shops and cafes to enjoy. Looking forward to it.


Caswell Bay Sunny

Caswell Bay

Taken from the coastal path to Brandy Cove

I've always taken photos of this lovely bay from the cliff near the Langland Bay golf course.  It's a pleasure to take one from the end near the Redcliff flats.  It's nice not to have the flats in the photo as well, they're rather ugly looking for such a beautiful bay.  Anyway, I hope you like the photo.


Pwlldu Bay

I enjoyed a very pleasant walk from Caswell Bay to Brandy Cove, Hareslade and on to Pwlldu Bay.  It's a bit treacherous in places but well worth the effort.  I think the last time I walked this part of the Gower coastal path must be nearly 40 years ago.  The views overlooking Pwlldu bay are stunning and I managed to get a few nice photos.  I've had loads of requests for a photo of Pwlldu Bay from the Bishopston end I think this is my best effort to date.  I hope you like it.


Mumbles “St David’s” Produce Market – 8th March

It's Mumbles "St David's" Produce Market this Saturday.  (http://www.mumblesdevelopmenttrust.org).

Also, the annual Mumbles Dragon Parade will leave Southend Gardens at 11am and march along the promenade to the Produce Market.  Weather and tide permitting, Mumbles Rowing Club will also have boats out in the bay.

So with the weather looking OK Mumbles looks like the place to be this Saturday morning.


Mumbles Produce Market – 8th Feb 2014

Mumbles Produce Market

The bad weather continues.  I've not taken a decent photo since before Xmas.  I've not even managed to wander round the cliff paths of Gower or even set foot on a sandy beach.  The latest casualty is that I've had to cancel my stall at Mumbles Produce Market on Saturday because more high winds and rain have been forecast.  Still unlike thousands of others my home hasn't been flooded yet.


Website Completed

Ruined Abbey Corridor

Arched corridor in ruined French abbey

I took this photo whilst wandering around a ruined abbey in France.  It was eerily quiet and you could definitely feel the energy of the place. Anyway, I thought I'd better announce that after more than a month and many hours of computer keyboard key pressing the website is finished.  I still have some photos to add to the galleries, and probably some aesthetic tweaks to accomplish, but, with a sigh of relief, that is it, I hope.


Website Update

Mumbles Lighthouse Sunrise

The website is now up and running.

There are still probably a few minor technical issues to resolve but apart from adding the remaining galleries it all seems to be working correctly.

I hope you like the new layout and the increased range of options.

Please let me know if you experience any problems.



New Website

Due to some technical difficulties, as well as the need to improve what is now a 3 year old site, I am currently in the process of updating www.swanseaphotos.com.

The new site should be up and running within the next few weeks, subject to any delays caused by my limited technical ability in website design.

Meanwhile if you want to contact me please use the contact form on the emerging website or email me at:  jj@swanseaphotos.com

Many thanks
