Last weekend I took a break from my writing desk and armed with my camera, went to the National Botanic Garden of Wales for a morning of photography. Unfortunately, it was wet and very windy and the only outdoor photos I took were of ducks on the pond, which is a shame because it is an amazing place. One I will definitely visit again.
Thankfully we weren't rained off and headed for the Butterfly House or Plas Pilipala in Welsh and there the time just flew by as under the guidance of the photographer leading the morning I got close to the beautiful butterflies. Here's a few of my photographs.
From there we went into the Great Glasshouse - the largest single span glasshouse in the world and I was able to take more lovely photos.
Now I'm back at my desk, revising my latest book, but the day out, focusing on something different allowed my mind to wander through my story.
I hope you have enjoyed my photographs, I just hope I can do as well on my own next time!
