AVAILABLE BEGINNING OF AUGUST

An essential companion to anyone with a camera who is visiting South Wales. With a foreword by the broadcaster Kate Humble.

In this comprehensive 448-page photo-location and visitors guidebook Drew Buckley takes us along the Pembrokeshire coast visiting the most photogenic locations for photography: sandy beaches, cliff tops, rocky stacks emerging from the sea, panoramic headlands, lighthouses, fishing villages and harbours, seaside towns, and woodlands filled with wild garlic and bluebells. Included is the Gower, with its towering sea cliffs and big vistas, Carmarthenshire’s Laugharne castle and Dylan Thomas’s writing shed, and many locations in South East Wales including the Welsh capital Cardiff and its bay.

Then it’s up the peaks of the Brecon Beacons for lofty views over the surrounding bucolic countryside, down the Monmouthshire & Brecon canal, and he guides us around Waterfall Country, perhaps the best place in the UK for autumn waterfall photography. Further north locations in Ceredigion are described and the dark sky area of the Elan valley, including the nearby red kite centre.

This guidebook Includes topographic OS maps, co-ordinates and directions for all locations, and recommendations on where to eat and stay, along with advice on the best time to visit and take photographs.
