Pembrokeshire in Black & White
During my time as a Royal Air Force photographer in the 1960s, 35mm cameras were regarded as a dangerous innovation and colour photography a dark and unnecessary art. So that I developed a lasting affection for monochrome, and for its ability to create stark ambient images or render fine detail without chromatic distraction. Time passes. For this photographer digital imaging has brought black and white photography back into the frame (sic) without the need for a darkroom and without the doubtful benefits of toxic chemicals and dermatitis. Where colour alternatives are available this is indicated in the captions. Some stand alone.
Across the borderline and into Ceredigion ... A black and white rendition of the source of the River Teifi, high in the Cambrian Mountains at Teifi Pools. The cluster of lakes, Llyn Teifi, Llyn Hir, Llyn Gorlan, and Llyn Egnant, sit in a sodden peat landscape under brooding skies. The Pools can be reached by a small road from Ffair Rhos, close to Pontrhydfendigaid, running to the North of the Pools. There are a number of colour captures on my landscape page.
