Mike's change in weather outlook!


This week's photo feature with Mike Davies

I think we have had enough of the long dark days of winter, not long to go now till the days grow longer and spring arrives.   Let us all hope for a lovely warm spring this year.

During the years I have been out and about taking fantastic sunrises and sunsets over Neath and the Brecon Beacons, one in particular was the sunrise from the summit of Pen-Y-Fan

(head of the flat lands) the highest peak at 2.907 ft above sea level.

 Sunrise from the summit

This was captured several years ago, but never the less a fantastic sight to witness, my grandson and I set off at around 3.30 am to get to the summit before sunrise.    It was in April for my birthday, a beautiful warm morning, we set off with large torch lights and arrived at the summit when dawn was breaking, the Brecons were dark and moody, and then they changed as the sun started to rise through the April mist
 and the Brecons showed off their magnificent  geology of the National Park which consists of old Red Sandstone, a sedimentary rock laid down more than 300 million years ago, this was a once in a life experience and a birthday to remember.

Here in our part of Wales we have the best sunrises and sunsets in the world

Here are a few examples of which this area has to offer.
