‘Spirit of Ynyslas’ ~ Lost Kingdom of Cantre’r Gwaelod

We shall start my pictorial search for the lost kingdom tomorrow and each day move on toward Cantre’r Gwaelod, through the submerged forest  and into a world long gone.    Just for today, I shall share one of my first views of the submerged forest – 5000 years oldSunken Forest fro Graphite-0075_72pxl_cr

It is now nearly the end of my degree in photography and I can’t begin to tell you how much it has meant to me to be have been able to have done it.  Mm.  I’d better not begin to tell you or you might think I am quite mad. I used to be of the opinion that arty people were slightly ‘touched’ – by what I didn’t quite know. Well I guess I’m touched with the same thing now and I’m more than happy to know it. I went to my interview and apologetically asked what ‘conceptual’ meant – just how did I get a place on the course?

My final degree work is ‘conceptual’ and for those of you who think that the word is some kind of arty secret; well let me tell you; most arty people would like to keep it a secret. But it really isn’t that big a deal. My images for my degree exhibit are of an incredible natural world occurrence; they represent a quite stunning landscape spectacle. However, and here is the conceptual bit, I mean them to be more than just stunning images that people might admire. I hope for them to represent not only the incredible beauty of our natural world but also, the fragility of our world. Maybe in seeing them, those who have got lost in the bit of a mess that is our modern world, might find the time to go explore, find the beautiful places that are still there for us to see, to experience, before they are gone forever.
