It took me just another year to go on my next photo workshop with Nick Jenkins, this time in Mid-Wales. We stayed at Llanerchindda Farm, a wonderful guesthouse in the middle of nowhere. The autumn colours were remarkable. This opened my eyes up to just how much wonderful scenery there was right on my doorstep. Of course I knew about the Beacons, but had never really considered the Elan Valley and the Black Mountain an area that I would want to visit, even though it was so close to Aberystwyth, a place I had fond memories of.
