David Wilson’s Images of Pembrokeshire

Words and pictures by DAVID WILSON

Early morning by the river

It’s that slight tang of the mudflats on a low tide that gets me every time. I love it. And the best time of the year to experience this – admittedly – weird fix? Winter.    

The mist burning off as the sun rises at Port Lion, revealing the mudflats and the river.

The foreshore at Llangwm is dotted with old boats.

I was drawn to the frost crystals which soon melted away.

My love of photography began when I bought my first camera aged 17.  I spent many carefree days riding around Pembrokeshire on my motorbike with my 35mm Canon and an Ordnance Survey map, learning to take photographs while exploring the coast and countryside. Due to my habit of colliding with objects, the motorbike is now history, but my passion for photography is as strong as ever.

The landscape of Pembrokeshire and Wales provides an idyllic playground for a black-and-white landscape photographer. In my work I seek to capture the country’s many different faces: the windswept coast of midwinter, a derelict farm cottage, the faded grandeur of a rural chapel, or the rugged contours of a mountain pass. The story of Wales is told through its landscape and it is this narrative that I seek to capture in my work.

Kitty knows that she will always be an incomer, but this is to be her sixth summers. The wet and grey days of winters have not diminished her love of Pembrokeshire, but she is always grateful for the golden light of spring and summer. Her love of the sea sustains her even through the darkest of days and she can often be found at high tide bobbing about in Fishguard harbour at high tide, often with seals in attendance. When not freezing in water she is usually at her computer. She says" Pembrokeshire.online has been an opportunity to celebrate this beautiful county and its people. Keep the stories coming. We love to hear from you."
