I have started to build a colection of images that highlight the geological and geomorphological diversity of Wales. I aim to build a portfolio that showcases the varied landscape and habitat, with its flora and fauna, and how it relates to the underlying geology.
I have already acquired many images for this project, and will present examples as i build the portfolio in my Nature Gallery. My ultimate aim is to construct a 'Coffee Table' book that showcases 'Wales in the Making'.
Many images that I will use for this book are dispersed throughout this website, with award winning images such as 'War and Peace', a split-level image of Llyn Idwal in Snowdonia.
