Lockdown Through A Lens: Gary Brine

by Webmaster, 18th February 2021

Our photography exhibition continues with this ethereal scene from Powys

"We definitely need to adjust the calendar so we can have a White Christmas in future," says wood artist Gary Brine, in response to Black Sheep's recent suggestion. "Here's a photo of the snow on the 25thJanuary this year!"

Locals will recognise the peak as Pen y Fan, in the Brecon Beacons.

"It's the view we're SO lucky to have from inside our lockdown home where we've been shielding for nearly a year, having just moved to Powys from Carmarthenshire," adds Gary. "Pen y Fan changes its look each day - often with its own personal plume of cloud. So much so, when we first moved here we nicknamed it 'Mini Kili' as it looked to us like a Welsh version of Kilimanjaro.

"That shows our ignorance, as we’ve since discovered Kilimanjaro is dormant, so won’t have a volcanic plume!"

Got a picture taken in lockdown (any of them!)?

Send it to us for inclusion in our Lockdown Through A Lens exhibition. Please keep your file sizes down to less than 1Mb - we only need images in 72 dpi. But do give them a title if you can and a bit of background about both the image and yourself (the more the merrier), including your full name and where you are from. It'd be great to have you involved.

You can send your images to:
