Stuart Herbert’s Photo Diary

I recently discovered Stuart Herbert’s Photo Diary.

Stuart is an excellent amateur photographer who concentrates on landscapes and Post-Industrial South Wales.

He’s currently documenting the Merthyr Road – the legacy of the industrialisation of the South Wales Valleys from Merthyr Tydfil to Cardiff Docks.

Stuart is great at capturing the essence of the industrial South Wales valleys and his photos are well worth a look.

You can find Stuart’s photo diary here – http://blog.stuartherbert.com/photography/ and more of his photos on Flickr here – http://www.flickr.com/photos/stuartherbert/

Welsh Daffodil

Welsh DaffodilThe daffodil is the national flower of Wales. This is a great shot of one in our garden with the sunlight streaming through it.

The roadside verges, gardens and parks throughout Wales are full of daffodils at this time of year.  A great Welsh sight!

Strange goings on in Cardiff Bay on Google Street View

Google Street View Cardiff Bay Ghost

So some strange goings on in Cardiff Bay as revealed by Google Street View.  Street View has provoked some controversy and some interesting comments over privacy issues but at the end of the day it doesn’t actually show anything that isn’t publicly available to someone walking down the street on the day that the photos were taken.

However, it has shown up some really bizarre things going on in the streets, even in our own Cardiff Bay.  The Street View snapshot above shows what appears to be a ghost in Cardiff Bay!!

Some people seem to think that it’s related to the wormhole situated in Cardiff Bay shown in Torchwood.  I think it’s more likely somebody advertising the forthcoming Mary Poppins show in the Cardiff Bay Millennium Centre 🙂

Langland Bay Surfing – Watch out!

Langland Bay Surfing - Scared surferI took this picture down in Langland Bay last summer.  It’s a favourite spot for surfers in the Gower and the wind was really strong on this day so the surf was up.

I got some good action shots using a long lens.

This guy was quite a way out and I took the picture hand-held so it’s a bit unsharp but the you can see the fear on the guy’s face!  Much better than I can do though!
