Images Kindly shared by Steve Martin
Steve Martin whose incredible and high quality work I’ve featured here before, last weekend went to Barmouth, Wales like many locals hereabouts. Thankfully for us, he also took his drone.
As many Midlanders do, I love Barmouth, but I particularly love the Afon Mawddach Estuary, and the stunning Clock House on the road there called Cops-faen, as well as the wonderfully improbable railway bridge, the crossing of which on the train always indicated the start of a great day ahead.
Coes-faen is now a spa and hotel, and you can find out more about it and it’s history here.
I thought it might make a pleasant change to share Steve’s Barmouth photos here and maybe jog a few memories. What do you remember of weekends or weeks at Barmouth? Please do get in touch.
Steve uses a professional-level DJI drone, and is very skilled in using it to obtain stunning images and video – his last gallery, of Chasewater and Brownhills Common went down reallyy well. A few months ago, I featured film and images Steve kindly shared from a daytime flight where he recreated a wonderful 1960s image of Brownhills as it is today, and later, his stunning night flight over Brownhills.
You can regularly see other examples of Steve’s work on his usual haunt, the popular and fascinating Old photos from Hednesford, Chadsmoor and Cannock group on Facebook,
Steve grew up in Brownhills where his family had the chip shop that used to be on the Lichfield Road, Brownhills for a while, and Steve has great memories of the Lichfield Road area, of which I’m still looking for old images if you know to any, please do get in touch.
Thanks to Steve for yet another beautiful gallery, and Steve is happy to talk about his work if you’re interested. You can hook up with him on Facebook here.
