Brecon Beacons Sunrise

I haven’t added a landscape post for a while, as I am currently building a new website which will host all of my landscape images, it’s still a little way off being released but will certainly be this year.

Launching at the same time will be a series of workshops, please watch this space for information. There will also be a weekly competition, where you will be able to win lots of lovely prizes including, prints, cards, calendars and camera equipment.

In the mean-time, please enjoy a one off image I made a few weeks ago sat on top of the Brecon Beacons, Pen Y Fan, for sunrise watching a cloud inversion spread out over most of the Brecon Beacons and mid-wales, a privilege.

4.45AM wake up calls do have some rather wonderful benefits.

Mark Soanes, Call of the Wild Director said “ We receive many requests for photography from our clients, so working with Neil to add a photography service to our events programme was the right thing to do. Neil brings a wealth of experience and a tremendous portfolio of images that will add value to our service offer.”

Call of the Wild and Neil Mansfield Photography will be looking to utilise the social media element of photograph sharing which is clearly of huge public interest, with the recent explosion in popularity of sites such as Flickr, Pinterest and 500px.

“Offering a photography solution to Call of the Wild customers, is an exciting opportunity to work with and support South Wales business. We have already got our feet wet literally and metaphorically and are very much looking forward to developing this partnership for the benefit of participants.” said Neil Mansfield
