PENARTH-based professional photographer Nick Treharne braved the sub-zero temperatures that gripped the town last week to capture a series of breathtaking images of the town in the snow.

Mr Treharne, whose work has been featured at the National Museum of Wales, has created a collection of black and white images that capture the unique atmosphere that enveloped the town as it was hit by Storm Emma.

Speaking about the opportunity to capture the rare event, Mr Treharne said: “The snowfall completely transformed the town. Everything familiar becomes unfamiliar, and as a photographer for me this represents the perfect opportunity to go out and capture landmarks that have been transformed by nature, and show the people of Penarth in our snow covered wonderland.”

The images have now been incorporated into Mr Treharne’s online portfolio, and are available to purchase from

John Jackson, the site’s founder, said: “These images beautifully capture a range of emotions, including the thoughtful woman on the Esplanade, a familiar bench in complete isolation, and of course people having fun.

“It’s a true mark of Nick’s extraordinary talent that he can capture our town in this way.”
