 Abereiddi, Pembrokeshire, West Wales

This image, to me, encapsulates what black and white photography is all about – light and shade, shape and form.

In north Pembrokeshire a couple of miles from Abereiddi lived John Knapp Fisher, an artist, and this photograph has been likened to some of his paintings which I consider an enormous compliment as I adore his work.

Taken late afternoon on the blackest of Winter day’s the sun hadn’t appeared all the time I’d been out. Fed up, I was packing my gear into the car when suddenly I saw shadows cast across the carpark – the sun was out. And amongst the illuminated gloom I spotted these white pine-ends lit up – couldn’t resist. Set the camera up quick smart and grabbed this shot before the sun disappeared once again.

David Wilson was brought up in Haverfordwest and now live a few miles downstream in the riverside village of Llangwm. His love of photography began when he bought my first camera aged seventeen, spending many carefree days riding around Pembrokeshire by motorbike with a 35mm Canon and an ordnance survey map.  

The landscape of Pembrokeshire and in the wider context, Wales, provides an idyllic playground for a black and white landscape photographer.

David seeks to capture the country’s many different faces; the windswept coast of mid-winter, 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 he seeks to capture in his work.
