The golden sun shines down onto the clear surface of the lake, reflecting off the water and rocks nearby. It’s 7 in the evening and still hot, as it should be on a summer’s day. Anwen and Myrddin make their way across the high grass. Laughter rings out as Anwen wobbles across another hidden hole in the ground. Once they reach the shore all goes quiet. They silently embrace and take it all in – the lake like a mirror, the high grass rippling like the sea, the tall mountains in the hazy distance. All of it looks majestic in the warm glow of the evening sun and the two of them cuddle up a little closer. I’m so happy we chose this spot for our shoot. It’s a beautiful drive from where I live and even closer to Anwen and Myrddin. We chat about their upcoming wedding, being Welsh in Wales and the necessity of having wellies in your boot at all times as we chuckle our way up the hill again. Two of us may or may not be just a little bit clumsy. What an incredible place this is, just two hours of scrambling up and down the rocks make me feel as rested as after a week at a spa. The drive home was a little darker once the sun set but my smile made up for it in brightness.
