I was up in Liverpool on the weekend doing the first reconnaissance for a series of walks along the Sefton Coast path. It’s an area I know well from birdwatching back in the 70′s and not much has changed really.
A group of students on our new photojournalism course at the University of South Wales covered the Elvis festival at Porthcawl this weekend and their work was showcased on BBC Wales news online.
The scheduled August walk had to be cancelled due, would you believe, to bad weather! So a rather quickly arranged date was agreed – we needed and still need to compile enough images that place the walks into a context and time is running out.
The new calendar for 2014 is finally on its way! (check out the 2012 one here – 2013 we missed due to my illness!) We’ve already cancelled two dates due to very unseasonal weather but today we were lucky and the weather was ideal for the work we had planned.
I’m back posting for a while! Still have a big op to come up in the early spring but will try and move things on a little by then.
The 2012 calendar has been out since January 1st and has been met with enthusiasm from all quarters. The quality of the images we had to choose from was very high and I’d like to thank all those involved and for sending their images on to me. It was a lovely project to have worked on and as a result of its success we’ve been asked to do another one for 2013!
Following 0n from the success of last years walks we are running a further two this year in spring and the autumn.
