The landscape here in the valleys of South Wales is beautiful. It’s littered with the remains of the mining industry. Slag heaps have reshaped the hilltops and the small towns made up of ribbons of terraced houses break up the hillsides, a lovely combination of curves and rhythmic, straight lines. The wet climate, gives rise to a rich palette of colours. These change sometimes subtly but often quite dramatically according to weather, season and light. The coast-line too is stunning, with completely different colours; soft fawn, pink, blue and lilac.
