Riders of the Storm, Weston-super-Mare

There is nothing quite like standing still and watching a storm cloud gather. The power and exhilaration of mother nature can literally take your breath away and put into perspective where real influence sits. 25th April 2017, Weston-super-Mare beach blue skies, sunshine, hail stones, freezing winds, pelting stormy rain all within 1 hour.

Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales

In a narrow sense, the name refers to the range of Old Red Sandstone peaks which lie to the south of Brecon. Sometimes referred to as “the central Beacons” they include South Wales’ highest mountain, Pen y Fan. The range forms the central section of the Brecon Beacons National Park (Parc Cenedlaethol Bannau Brycheiniog), a designation which also encompasses ranges both to the east and the west of “the central Beacons”. This much wider area is also commonly referred to as “the Brecon Beacons”, and it includes the Black Mountains to the east as well as the similarly named but quite distinct Black Mountain to the west. The highest peaks include Fan Brycheiniog to the west and Pen y Fan in the central part. They share the same basic geology as the central range, and so exhibit many similar features, such the north-facing escarpment and glacial features such as lakes and cwms below the escarpment. They all fall within the border of the national park. Read more here¬†and visiting information here
