Shooting at Cwm Orthin carries more challenges than the norm. A dull and rainy day is probably not the best time to tackle subjects such as this, but over the last two years I have photographed it just about every weather condition. The biggest challenge is that just about every other photographer in the area has also photographed this location, including the late, great Faye Godwin.

I decided to concentrate on the area around the married men’s barracks on this visit, it’s one of those subjects that I take a token shot of and then move onto other areas. If I’m honest, the fact that it was raining and tis was the closest location to my van if the weather worsened may also have been an influencing factor.
