My next volumes will be released by Amberley Publications in early 2018. They are 50 Gems of South West Wales and 50 Gems of Mid Wales. The text for both of them is completed in first draft form and we are now going round taking all the photographs we need to illustrate them. In the past week we have been to the north of Powys to take pictures in Llanidloes and Llanfyllin. Our visit to Lake Vyrnwy produced some good images, one of which has been featured on the BBC Wales website in their Your Pictures in Wales section. We have also been to Cefn Sidan and whilst the weather wasn’t as bright as I would have liked the huge beach was virtually deserted. Here are a couple of images – though neither is likely to feature in the book.
