I'd been trying unsuccessfully to shoot some aerial pictures of South Wales for over six weeks. The weather had just not cooperated and when the weather was ok and I was available, the pilot wasn't and vice versa. Eventually there was a weather window where both pilot and I were available so an early flight of 9am was arranged.
The weather had the last laugh though as once airborne despite a good forecast it became apparent that there was a lot of haze, not good for aerial photography, which very soon turned into a thick bank of fog as we approached Cardiff.
Plans were changed and we headed north from Port Talbot towards Maesteg, The Rhondda Valleys and Caerphilly before heading back to Swansea Airport.
Despite the poor visibility the flight resulted in some good images of South Wales, the true beauty of which is revealed from 3000 feet above.
