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.
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.
