Three things you should know about skiing in Scotland

Three things you should know about skiing in Scotland

We knew powder snow wouldn’t be on the cards. It would be like asking for a vintage bottle of 1921 Dom Pérignon champagne in a Blackpool bingo hall.

Our expectations were never that unrealistic.

But the conditions were wonderful all the same. The snow had a sublime Goldilocks quality to it: not too firm; not too soft; but just right.

6 months on a Polar Bear infested island

6 months on a Polar Bear infested island

I have never learnt this much in such a short amount of time. Living on a remote island is very different than living on the mainland! We have no cars, only two tractors. I have learnt how to shoot with a rifle and to use safety precautions in regards to polar bears.

Discover Cymru's founder on community, creativity and responsibility

Discover Cymru's founder on community, creativity and responsibility

Choosing what to feature is a constant challenge. I try to post new photographers where possible, and I’ll always post a less known location over one of the classics. I have two objectives with selection; helping people discover new locations and helping great photographers get the recognition they deserve.

Welsh waters afterglow

Welsh waters afterglow

I am unconcerned with distances, times and temperatures and swim for my creativity. For time and space away from distractions. I find the water gives me a great clarity of thought.

Somewhere on the road to Bilbao

Somewhere on the road to Bilbao

To our right, the bikes were half stacked, half abandoned, our shoes and helmets scattered around the wheels thrown off sweaty brows and swollen hot feet. To our left, the others milled about with hazy expressions on their tired, sunkissed faces and beers in hand.

Sighing silk and seas of stars

Sighing silk and seas of stars

Wild angry currents take souls every year and consequently this stretch of coast remains unloved and isolated. The length of the bay was strewn with debris from both our own tourism and fishing industries as well as foreign imports of bottles, bags and brick-a-brac from Europe and the Americas.

Gather's Creation Myth

Gather's Creation Myth

Have you ever noticed that ex-smokers are the most vociferous about passive smoking? I’m like that with the outdoors. It meant everything to me for a long time growing up, until I lost my way. Now I’m back, at somewhere past 40, and I’m gutted at what I missed out on. It drives my passion for helping others find happiness and contentment in the outdoors.
