Last weekend we attended our fourth Phoenix Alternative Festival in Llanfyllin, Wales. Andy (Moo Pa), Patrick, Laura and myself shooting wetplate portraits with funds going towards the event charity.
Most festivals in the UK had been cancelled due to the torrential rain and high winds forecast for the weekend. Phoenix was to go ahead whatever, we had worried about a limited turnout but as usual the Phoenix never fails to deliver.
Due to the severe weather forecast we had decided to take the BIG tent. We’ve only put this up once before and with more helping hands. Andy (Moo Pa) and I arrived Thursday afternoon to sunshine and the dilemma of where to put the tent. The usual spot would have been a squeeze even if we were the only tent there. We found a spot that was just about right. Luckily Steph and Moo Ma were there to help. Must have taken about three hours between us.
