Wales for a Week

This weeks sees me in Wales for the S4/C Wales Ladies Championship of Europe at Royal St David's Golf Club in Harlech, Gwynedd. The course itself is a classic links course just yards from the sea. Sadly you cant see the sea from the course but with the 700 year old Harlech Castle standing imposingly over on the escarpment you don't really miss the sea. I am hoping to get some shots of the course, weather permitting and managed to take one photo at sunset of the 13th green and hole. It is always a challenge to shoot into the sun because of flare etc but this one turned out OK. I was lucky with the cloud formation as well as it adds some texture to what otherwise could have been a fairly empty space. I shot this with a canon 24-70 f2.8 L lens at 24mm ISO 250 as I was handholding the camera. The shot was also a challenge as the fairways are roped off to keep spectators off so finding an angle where the ropes and posts are hidden took a little while. am going to keep shooting in the evenings to try and get some shots of the Harlech Castle and the course at sunset as well.
