A Walk Around The Lower Lliw Reservoir

As the year comes to an end as far as group meetings go, our penultimate meet was in Lliw Reservoir in Swansea, South Wales. Its a location we had visited a different section of a few years ago, so this part of the route was all new to us. I managed to capture the dying embers of autumn, and hopefully some interesting photographs.

Lliw Reservoir offers many different walking opportunities, plus it is a fishery, has sculptures along its route and during certain times of the year they have water sporting events. It a huge place, with great landscapes, vast and varied wildlife, including birds of prey and more, plus so much more.

Leading a group of 17 of us, we made the circular route around the reservoir. The other photographers were all armed with various cameras and an array of zoom lenses, while I chose the Fujifilm X-T3 and the Viltrox 23mm F/1.4. Yes! I one camera, one lens and one focal length!

The raw files were edited in Darktable using my new “Radiant” DT Style, which gave quite realistic results for this dark, grey winters day. It would have been so easy to over-saturate these photos, but that’s not what I seen, and of course, as you have noticed recently, I am staying far more in reality than I used to!

Next week will be my last images from a group walk, but I will be continuing them in mid-January 2023. Of course I will still be out with the camera, so you will see more soon!

I really like my tree photographs, especially images 7 through 10. I think they were the highlight of my day. There is something about gnarly trees and moss walls that just makes interesting landscape images.

Let me know what you think, and thank you as always for taking the time to look.
