After a blast of orange and purple dawn on Wednesday I rushed off to get some shots across the Strait but within 5 minutes of leaving home, the colours had dissipated and grey cloud had built up. Today it was another of those clear sky mornings with no real compositional interest in the top of the frame, so again I decided against photography and concentrated on the new book instead.
"Y Swyngyfaredd- The Enchantment" is being launched on April 4th 2009, at the Wales Millennium Center in Cardiff, along with a huge show of large format prints of several of the book images. The exhibition will show for the whole of April. Two TV companies are interested in covering it.
I was up until 3am on Monday evening, finishing all the titles for 60 or so main images, and 1.30 am on Tuesday night finishing all the descriptions, thank goodness! I thoroughly enjoy the writing, but it really does demand loads of time over and above running the business.
The translator, my Welsh tutor Ann Corkett, was in this morning asking about small details, ready to get started on the main thrust of the translation. She has until next week to complete it ALL so I don't envy her her job! I think I had misled her by saying that I didn't think she'd have as much work to do as for my Anglesey Landscapes - Tirluniau Môn books - but I got carried away!
Roadworks are back to plaguing the village and this time for maybe three months! Ah the wonders of retailing in town centres!
