I’ve recently put the finishing touches to a new walking guide to my home county, Pembrokeshire. It will be published next year as my second in a series for award-winning Pocket Mountains.
The experience of spending a year walking, and photographing, landscapes that I’ve known for a lifetime was quite something. It involved some new finds as well as the joy of rediscovering ‘old friends’, in some cases going back to locations I haven’t visited for more than 30 years.
I’m now giving my feet a rest to work on another book project that promises to be more deskbound. I’m going to be collaborating with academic Rachel Bragg, and Care Farming UK, to put together a book about the healing power of contact with nature and the great outdoors.
Hopefully, I will be getting out of the office from time to time. I’m looking forward to visits to farms like Clynfyw (pictured), which I went to photograph a few weeks ago.
