Been trying out the Sony a7 this week from work (perks of working for Jessops πŸ˜€) Even though the nights aren't that dark through June and July I thought I would give it a go at capturing Jupiter (its the brightest star in the photo!). Was pretty pleased with the result, compared it was taken from my bedroom window πŸ˜‚ #smilerphotography #rural_love #nightphotography #astrophotography #photopills #osmaps #long_exposure #homesweethome #milkyway #starrynight #travel_goer #gloriousbritain #landscapephotography #wanderlust #cameracentreuk #viewbug #jessopsmoment #walesadventure #walesonline #itvwales #ilovetoroam #wildandfree #loveabergavenny #visitmonmouthshire #ig_bliss #framingbritain #jupiter @wanderlustwales @tradecanvas @visitwales @wild_camping_wales @beautiful.wales @wales.shots @walesonline @discovercymru

While sitting on Marloes beach enjoying a well earned sandwich, I saw these two slightly burned logs laying side by side. Then I saw the multicoloured rocks and then that view. And I thought to myself, that would be a nice photo! What do you guys think? Do you share my opinion? 😁 #marloessands #marloes #pembrokeshire #pembrokeshirecoast #welshcoast
Was heading down to Watwick bay, when we stumbled across these daffodils. This little bee made for a great model!

"I can see a rainbow!" One thing I also do when I'm out and about with my camera is every now and then I do a 360! You never know what could be behind you that you're missing out on. And on this day when I did my 360, I was rewarded with this beaut of a rainbow on Tenby's North beach! So if you see a gal with a camera, randomly spinning around, it's probably me! πŸ˜‚
"Sugar Loaf!" The sky was so pretty and pink yesterday evening! But was so cold, by this point I had lost all feeling in my fingers and could hardly press the shutter! πŸ˜¬β„οΈ
