Here’s something a little different from my wedding pictures. As many know, the Welsh Tourist Board placed a large silver sign saying EPIC at Rhossili Bay, overlooking the famous landmark of Worms Head. Since last weekend people have been flocking to the site and filling up facebook and instagram with images of the sign at various stages of the day, including some amazing sunsets. Photographers have also ventured down the Gower to capture this dramatic site which seems to have created a little controversy. Some members of the public feel it is a “blot on the landscape”. Personally I feel it has brought a lot of attention to the area and the campaign has done exactly what it set out to do.
I decided I wanted to shoot it with a different angle and instead of getting a dramatic sunset I chose to just use the sign and the fact that even here in Wales, on the right night with the right conditions, we can see the amazing Milky Way. Rewind back to last year when I took my first Milky Way pictures from the top of Cefn Bryn, the highest point on the Gower. It was great success and I was blown away by how clear it was. Jump back to this week and really it was a no brainer, I had to try to make this EPIC picture happen.
I hope you enjoy it.
