Places - Penlan Uchaf Gardens

2 Apr 2020 2:14PM   Views : 423 Unique : 299

Situated near Fishguard in Pembrokeshire, a hill top farm with a garden and cafe. It's very unlikely that we'll be able to visit it again anytime soon, but we were there in June 2019 and it was a very, very pleasant visit. The garden was interesting, not huge, but with plenty of interesting nooks and crannies to explore. So here's a few images, shot using the Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR plus a couple of lenses. The inexpensive SMC Pentax-FA J 70-300mm is worthy of special mention as it's sharp and has the most wonderful bokeh. The HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm is already well understood and is a very fine lens. One day we might be in the area again and if so another visit will be a great idea.

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
