I shall be updating this journal entry on a regular basis (i.e. when needed), and therefore, you may receive numerous notifications about this entry on a regular basis if something new has come up in the entry (I apologise in advance if it seems like I'm spamming your inbox. I don't mean to...)

Personal updates

I now have a tumblr account! Just like with dA, I'm going to be using my tumblr to post up some photography and art, as well as to be social! So if you have a tumblr, please feel free to check it out and chat to me! It would be great to talk to some other deviants!

Also, OMG, I can't believe I hit 5,000 pageviews! I'm so happy! Thank you to everyone who has viewed, commented, faved and followed me/my work so far! I really have so many plans this year with both my deviantART account and with the Pure--Nature group, I just hope everything goes to plan :giggle:

I'll hopefully be posting a lot more stuff up soon, but I'm a bit busy at the moment, with the current workload at university and everything, so it may be a while before I get some new material, but I will be working with groups closely for now.

If you love nature, or create nature artworks, please join this new group!


Looking for contributors!

I'm currently looking at making some changes to the group, so I'm looking for some contributors who can help run the group alongside my co-founders, as well as gain new members for the group, and to help create and run new ideas that we may come up with. If you're interested in joining, please send a note to either me or the group, and we can discuss it further (requirements, needs etc.) =D

Group feature!

A lovely new group feature for March! Enjoy! =D

--- Update - 04/01/2014 ---

Just a quick update. Over the next 2-3 weeks, I won't be on dA as much as usual. Originally, it was because of exams, however, anyone in the UK probably knows about the storms at the moment. I just arrived back in Aberystwyth a couple of days ago, and the damage to the promenade is shocking... The storms seem to be all over the UK (or at least Wales), but the damage in Aberystywth is ridiculous. Don't believe me? Take a look at the photos on this report.…

The paving stones on the prom has literally been forced out of the pavement, and has been scattered across the main road. Shingles (again) covering the road, but a lot worse this time. Railings have literally been torn out of the ground with chunks of concrete and have been moved around, damage has been done to some of the shelters and buildings on the seafront, including university accommodation on the seafront, and benches have litera;ly been ripped out of the ground and broken in half. There has been power cuts in certain university accommodation and damage to the university network in the seafront residences as well. There was also fears of the town centre/seafront being flooded as well, with up to 6ft of water. The worst seems to have past though, and flooding doesn't seem like it's going to happen now. Unfortunately, there has been flooding in other areas like Cardiff Bay, Penarth, Llantwit Major and Camarthen. I think a road even collapsed in Camarthen as well, making it completely unsafe to drive on! Oh, and lightning struck a house around the Caerphilly area, and the house caught on fire! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!? Anyway, people have been evacuated from the town centre and are taking shelter in Penglais at the moment.

While exams have been delayed for a week so I can do some more revision, there seems to be a lot of tension in the air at the moment. This storm may continue past the weekend, and that certainly isn't good news after the storm today. I just hope everyone who has been affected are okay...

If I can get a break from revision, I may go down to the seafront (after the storm has calmed down), and do some photography of the damage. Although it would be stupid to go down while the storm is still going on, I would really like to get some photography before the council start cleaning up, and thats usually straight after the storm, so there is going to be a very short time frame...

Anyway, I shall hopefully be fully active at the end of the month (if this storm doesn't kill me that is...). See ya!

I am currently studying Business & Management at Aberystwyth University. I've been trying to develop my photography skills over the last year, although it's not that easy with a cheap bridge camera... I would love to be able to work more with photography, but I suppose I'll have to wait and see how well I progress and learn before I go making any big decisions.
