Brecon Beacons Landscape photography Diary..Ysbryd Yr Hendre Saith



I would like to thank you all for sticking with me for this series of the Diary, as I would imagine a constant stream on mono images of old ruins and piles of stones can be a bit monotonous but I had to work this project out of my head, as I have been playing with the subject for a few years and not committed the time as it is a vast and sprawling subject. For those few of you that connected with the images and gave me valued feedback and encouragement I thank you but as the nettles and briar’s once again consume the ruins we must leave them alone but I promise we shall return to the subject next winter as we have only but scathed the surface . So for one last time please join me as we crawl deep into the legacy of the People of the Black Mountains and put your hands together for the wonderful Meic Richards who provided the voice over for the opening sequence


  1. I would like to thank you Simon for the time spent photographing all these wonderful sites. You filled in the gaps to all the questions I had in my head while viewing the videos. As you know, I love ruins and old structures and am so curious as to who, where, why and when. I look forward to the next of the series next winter. Now that Spring is approaching, you no doubt have more beautiful trails, trees, plants and breathtaking views of the Mountains. Give Meg a nice pat on the head for me.
    John, Canada.


    1. Many thanks for your kind comments, I appreciate I answered a few but left a lot of questions unanswered but that will give me something to keep me occupied during the summer layoff. Winter is slowly losing its grip and the anticipation of spring can be felt in the dawn air and with a new month a new topic for the diary and the open hills are calling us.

      kind regards,
