Hay on Wye at Night

WAL351

Hay on Wye in Wales is a small town renowned for its bookstores and its annual literary fair.  It is charming, quaint and extremely friendly but it is definitely not known for its nightlife!

I was in Wales for a workshop over the weekend and one of our activities was attending the annual rodeo and fair in Llanthony where the local riders attempted to stay on the wild horses which had been rounded up for the event.  It was great fun – at least for those watching and judging…

Festival Faces

Always fun to catch the faces during an event so when our little village has a ‘do’ one has to get out and try to capture it!

Stage Action

It’s that time of year again – the annual Iznik International Dance and Pottery festival.  This year we had dance groups from 5 countries and from our own little town.  As usual trying to find an uncluttered shot of these events is more than challenging, but the exercise is good for practicing this craft!
