I wasn't going to end the day without posting an image of my favourite fall of them all, Sgwd Gwladus.. After a 10 hour night shift followed by a 3 hour drive I was back here after a year long spell and she was every bit majestic as I'd remembered..
I made my way up the trail before sunrise, there was just enough light to guide my way. Adrenaline was pumping through my veins, aided by the intoxicating rush of the River Neath as it tumbled down the gorge alongside my path.
I reached her around sunrise. Rounding the corner it was hands down one of the most rewarding and emotional moments I've had for a very long time. Mother Nature never disappoints, she always understands, when I need to escape from the world she is always there waiting with open arms.
I stood at the base of this majestic fall, almost within touching distance, the spray landing on my face and the noise enveloped me. I closed my eyes and tuned in to the sound, my camera still safe and dry in its bag.
Previous visits have always felt a bit rushed. I've never come away with a photograph that I feel has done the experience justice.
With not one other soul around I enjoyed a couple of hours photographing this beautiful sight, from every angle, with every lens I had but not before I made my peace with her.
A year away from this part of the world feels like a lifetime and when autumn comes around there are few other places I like to lose myself.
Wales, you were sensational...

I sometimes get asked what gear I use on my photo adventures. Everyone has their likes and dislikes, budget considerations and individual tastes. For me, it’s about quality, durability, comfort and...quality. For starters, I use a #sonycamera#a7riii with a mixture of lenses. My go-to lens is the Sony #gm2470 f2.8 zoom. Even though it’s heavy, it’s built solid and the image quality is amazing. For wide shots, I use the #zeiss1635 f4. It gets the job done and is perfect for my type of landscape shooting. For a long lens, I use the Sony G f4 70-200. It’s surprisingly sharp and I find it useful for outdoor landscape shots. If portraits, wildlife and weddings were more my thing, I’d probably opt for the Sony GM 2.8 version for faster lens requirements. For shooting panoramas, I use the #zeiss55mm18 and stitch multiple images in post processing. The 55 1.8 is amazingly sharp and grabs every little detail out of a composition. For other gear, I use the #mindshiftgear Backlight 26 liter backpack made by #thinktank . Believe me when I say this this thing is rugged and built like a tank. I use a #madewithmefoto Globetrotter carbon fiber tripod. For other internal storage compartments and clip-ons I use #tenba accessories. They work great! I just started using #leefilters this past year and switch between the #bigstopper and #littlestopper for ND filters to bring down the light along with some graduated filters to darken the sky. Last but not least, I love wearing #kuhl clothing. For outdoor active wear, they can’t be beat for comfort and quality. Plus they’re based right here in #slc#utah#utahcompany . Also a big shout out to #pictureline in SLC. They are the best camera store in the intermountain west, bar none. I also use #pixelsfoto in Sandy for printing needs. They do a great job!!#utahphotographer#utahgram#utahdotcom#wowutah#utahisrad#landscapephotographer#cameragear#camerageargeeks
