I have been away for a few days in Norfolk recently mainly for the Wildlife sound recording course run by Piers Warren of Wildeye?which I booked earlier in the year. It was a great few days and Chris Watson, who is an independent sound recordist who has worked on most of the major BBC natural history series recently, was the main tutor. Chris is very approachable and a great teacher. He was helped out by Jez Riley French, who is a sound artist and specialises in hidden sounds.?Both gave very inspiring examples of the possibilities and power of sounds. I have been thinking recently that with my interest in video, sound is becoming very important. It adds an extra sensory hook when combined with visual images: still or video. I plan to start introducing more sound into my work, so keep an eye out for some new style presentation coming soon once I have got around the technical issues.
The weather has been pretty wet on Gower recently, which has been limiting opportunities to get out and make some images. In one of the brief moments between the rain showers I managed to get a few moments down on Caswell Bay. The wind was quite strong and white foam was washing up and blowing over the sand.
