14th December 2013
Been a bit lazy with the blogging lately. Yesterday saw an early morning trip to one of the local beaches and then a short hike to a Welsh National park only to be told that until lunchtime, the park was closed to those without tickets to “feed Santa’s reindeer”.
On this, we left and went to another place that was on our list. A large scrapyard in South Wales. We had visited here before but wanted to see what was left and whether an opportunity to have a wander around was on the cards.
We parked and as we entered, we met up with one of the owners who told us that the council had imposed some law around the environment and the amount of vehicles that could be left on grassland. I’m not entirely sure what law it was, but some had been removed, some had been put into the storage sheds and others had made their way overseas, which was where many of these vehicles ended up anyhow. The majority of the business was being done in parts and hard to obtain items so all was not lost.
This time, we were allowed to wander into the sheds amongst the parts which was not allowed before so we spent an hour or two wandering through the three sheds and the vehicles outside.
The image below was taken at a distance using the 50mm wide open. One of my favourites from the morning.
