Waterfall off Llyn Ogwen

Waterfall off Llyn Ogwen

Hi all

had a wonderful week away in Wales, Rhosneigr never fails to capture our hearts and we’d gladly move there tomorrow. We ventured out into Snowdonia one day and as we drove through the Ogwen Valley we came across the waterfall that flows beneath the A5 road, it was extremely windy and the skies constantly changing light was a devil of a job to filter out!

If you look beneath the bridge you can just make out another bridge, this is an original Roman bridge, when Telford was given the task of constructing the new bridge he decided (luckily) to leave the original in situ ….great relief

I got loads of shots so I’ll be posting them as I wade through my shots and process them.


A big thank you also to Richard who has recently bought  3 of my shots, really appreciate the sales as I do all my customers, its a humbling feeling knowing that others “get me” and also a great honour to think my work is gracing someone’s living room wall.

many more to follow and some great sunsets, gotta get back into the Peaks this week and training sessions start real soon, have a little list ready to go…..very exciting times

    Hi Adrian
    Wow …these are lovely. I like the shimmer coming off some of the rocks and the intense colour of the greenery against the rocks and water. My eyes actually hurt after trying to pick out the Roman bridge…in the end I enlarged to 400% and I found it …lol.
    I’d heard theat there was a bit of a water shortage over in some parts of the UK (my mum has been watering her garden with bath water), but this particular stream looks raging. Was the water really so rampant or is it due to the effects you’ve used?

      Hi Alison

      believe me it was rampant and very windy, I was nervous about taking the shots, if I’d gone in that would have been it, 30′ drop behind me into a raging torrent, not the ending I had intended for myself, that been reserved for living while 90 years old and been caught in bed with a super model….ah well back to reality.

    Hi mate, hope you had a great time in wales..
    Got to agree with Alison on this one, so much going off too. Nice work with the big stopper. You get yourself into some right positions, the drop sounded big, and what a splash you would have made, lol . Then again you like your water so what a place to go if your gonna go…I can see your method……in your madness! Enjoy bud.
