Welsh Explorer

Hi....new member from South Wales...

Recommended Posts

Hi to all.....just found this site and thought I would join....
   Have been an amateur photographer for a while using a bridge camera(Coolpix??something), and have now invested in a full Dslr (a few months ago) Bought a Nikon D5100...mmmm(more buttons than a scientific calculator lol)....So am still learning and browsing numerous vids and tutorials, trying to get to grips with all the settings lol.
    I had an interest in nature photography and still do, but a while back this year came across Project Mayhem online and now am very interested in Urban Exploration. I have visited a few places like Cwm colliery and Talgarth Asylum....also a few derelict farms and houses etc....I usually visit places with my brother from another and sometimes with my sons(when it's not too illegal lol (not wanting to get my sons arrested ....have to try and set some sort of example). 
    Will be having a browse through the members and photos in a mo.....
I have a few photos on Flickr@      https://www.flickr.com/photos/welsh-explorer_urbex/albums/
          a Facebook page        @        https://www.facebook.com/w3lsh3xplor3r
          an Instagram profile   @       https://www.instagram.com/welsh_explorer/
I am also in the process of making a website about my exploits on Wix, which I have just published.....it is still a work in progress.

                                          @       http://w3lsh3xplor3r.wix.com/welsh-explorer 

Please feel free to have a gander.......if you do.....let me know what you think and also any advice on content or even criticisms (I take it all as advice lol). Please also give us a like and a follow if you're feeling generous(they all add up lol) ty in advance.

Glad to be here as a new member of other photographers and enthusiastic Urban Explorers.

Hi, welcome to the forum. We are all a friendly bunch and hope that you find your way around nicely. I have just had a look at your Flickr page, some nice shots, especially your detailed ones. Get a few reports posted up, just add a little bit on the history of the place you have explored with details of your explore :)
