I first saw the film ‘Blue Hue’ by artist Natasha Brooks back in May when it was shared on the Secret Adventures Facebook page. I was entranced by the images of a woman gliding peacefully through the clear waters of still lakes, nestled in the welsh mountains. A week or so later, when a message arrived in my inbox asking if I wanted to travel to Anglesey to meet Natasha and photograph a group of strangers as they embarked on their own wild swimming and camping adventure with her, I jumped at the chance.
After a lunch in the sun we pushed on for another couple of hours until our destination came dramatically in to view. An old brick works nestled into the cliffs looking like something fresh out of a famous five novel.
The skis were old school military skis, a couple of pieces of wood basically with some straps. How are you supposed to ski on these long thin slippery things?!
