A Photographer's Insight- Rucksack Magazine

It may be the winter months, but I have had a busy couple of months in and outside the office.

My photography inside the office is quite different to the work I do privately. In my spare time, I shoot whatever I see, which in a beautiful location like the Brecon Beacons National park tends to be the landscapes. I often shoot landscapes for work, but they are usually bright and light and all on sunny days. My own landscapes are quite moody and shot on weekends or days off whilst walking with friends.

Back in October, Rucksack Magazine published my landscape photography and accompanying words in their online journal. It is nice that my work outside of Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages gets recognised.

This photo journal also came at the same as my first exhibition where I was chosen out of thirty applicants to exhibit 5 photographs from around the Brecon Beacons in the Andrew Lamont Gallery in the Theatr Brycheiniog.

It’s not a lengthy article. If you wanted to have a read and see some of my photography, please follow the link below and let them know what you think. It’s so nice to hear from people.

Rucksack Magazine- Colours of the Brecon Beacons- a Photo Essay By Lucy Gold

Most of the photography is shot around the central beacons where I live and explore. Most walks around here are not far from your front door, maybe sometimes a little drive to get there, but it definitely is worth it. You can temper the distances to how long you would like to be out on the mountain. The full beacons walk is an all day one, so take plenty of provisions for good or bad weather, but there are a lot of shorter, still enjoyable routes that only take a couple of hours.
