The very aptly named Dito di Dio ('Finger of God'). Had a small disappointing shock to discover the lake had dried to nothing short of a big puddle after a dry summer but it was impossible to be disappointed by the view. One of the most awe inspiring and peaceful nights I've spent under the stars ✨
Just back from a successful aurora hunt in the Brecon Beacons! Been so long since I saw it from Wales, not a bad start to the season ✨
Struggling to find time to edit the images from the Dolomites but already planning the next adventure. Where's your favourite place in the UK to get outside? 🍃🍂
So relieved the chairlifts to this place were closed on my visit. I guess having this place for yourself at sunset is enough of a privilege but spending the night here was one the most incredible of my life ✨ At one point a huge fireball meteor streaked across the sky, fragmenting into pieces like a firework ☄️🌠 I felt so close I could have touched it..
So yeah there's no parking at this hotel! 🚗 The Dolomites are scattered with mountain huts call rifugios. Sadly they were all closed as the summer season had just finished and everyone was prepping for the winter season ahead, but still couldn't help but admire their remote beauty. 5/5 for location 👌
Each mountain in the Dolomites has such a unique character I found myself giving them names. This here is The Don (actually Monte Cristallo but whatever). What would you call it?
I landed in Austria and drove through the sunset light towards the Italian Dolomites. As I was arriving in the dark I knew I needed a quick and easy location for the first shot... Lago di Braies (or as @johnedwardjames calls it Lago di Instagram 😂). Come sunrise it was a jostle of tripods but at night the lake was mine. It was so still you could hear the fluttering of a moths wings from the other side. Not a bad start to the trip 👌✨
Sat in the airport trying to scramble a plan for this last minute trip to the Dolomites. Turns out everything's closed in October.. supermarkets, trails, lifts... so this should be interesting! Thankfully, nature has no closing hours. Make sure there's some autumn colours left for my return please thanks 😄
One of the most challenging pictures I've ever taken. But then again, the good ones don't come easy eh? Catch it in my latest Astro Vlog (link in bio and story) ✨

Problem with going to Snowdonia is that in all it's epic ruggedness it makes the south feel tame! So nice to kick back in the van though, constantly at the helm of the weather 🌤️
This Snowdonia trip is coming to an end 🚐 Could get used to this vanlife malarky 🤔 Anyway here's an old shot from my last time up here just to make sure the Instagram algorithms don't plummet my account into an echo chamber. Have a good weekend folks, happy adventures 🌲
The incredible dark skies at Rhossili Bay ✨ Find out how I planned this shot in my latest AstroVlog (link in my bio)
Difficult to see why Rhossili ranks amongst the world's best beaches isn't it?... Nope! Where's your favourite beach? 🏖️✨
The colours of summer are fading ☀️ And to that I say... Good riddance! What's your favourite season? 🍁
