Wales in the Sunshine

North Wales is incredibly pretty and as the weekend was forecast beautiful weather, we went on a trip to take in a few sites. We did manage quite a few and here are some images from the day.

For those that have never been Wales is full of charming bridges, clear running water and beautiful waterfalls.

As a result of so much water, the greens are very green and the lambs are a little smaller there than those in our immediate area. Although this one has got quite chubby!

The mountains looked beautiful with clear skies behind them and it is hard to portray the sheer scale. Birds of prey were soaring ahead and in the streams and falling water Dippers could be seen flitting across the banks.

Having talked about misty water in a previous blog post, I couldn’t resist having a go, all those white water falls are the perfect opportunity. However, I was struggling to get to grips with a fairly new wide-angle lens and I still have a bit to learn about framing my subject!

Of course there is forest too and up by Blaenau Ffestiniog slate is abound. So much so that many in the area have slate fences!

We headed up to Swallow falls through Betws-Y_Coed which was beautiful but, sadly this is a place where your really need to go in a morning for good images. The sun was directly above the falls as we got there and there were too many shadows for me to make anything of it. Especially as landscape photography is not really my forte. But, on the way home, we just about caught the last steam train along the railway
