Fire on the Hills - © Glyn Davies 2010
The first of this brand new A1 Limited Edition, shown originally at "A Spring Flow" over Easter, has just been purchased by ex student and long time fan of my work, Mrs S. Hague from Gwynedd.
From my original blog post
"Then something happened. The light changed. I noticed a hint of sunshine in the far distance over the Great Orme at Llandudno. I sprinted down from the light and from thinking the day was over, I was becoming excited again. On my way back to the beach, I realised that half the island was in fact black, gorse-burnt swathes of grassland. Amongst the smoky dark cinder-land were veins of pale sandy tracks connecting main footpaths. They looked wonderful in contrast, small defined limbs amongst the ravaged land"
"The sun briefly popped out splattering fire everywhere, and then turned to a hot red glow on the horizon, quenched after 15 minutes by a cold blue sea. Banks of clouds reared overhead and all light intensity disappeared. I walked at a fast pace back along the beach, much closer to the sand dunes this time, as the advancing tide had drowned the sand bars."
