When I was being battered against the weather on Llanddwyn Island, I asked myself why am I doing this, why am I the only idiot on this island with a camera balanced on a tripod. And then, whilst I was retrieving my hat which had blown away for the umpteenth time and at the same time trying to get back to my tripod before it too decided to go for a swim, I realised it gives me therapeutic meditation. Bizarre thought in all this chaos.
But it does, it clears my mind and eases any worries and anxieties. My mind is freed of all worries and distractions & I become completely focussed on where I am. For those moments, all that matters is the wonder of nature that surrounds me & my life is enriched by feeling small and surrendering to the power of the elements.
