I took a few days off in Wales to photograph Low Flying aircraft, however whilst sat on top of the hills it would have been criminal not to photography some landscapes.

This Corris Corner looking down on the lake – Tal Y Llyn

Tal-y-llyn Lake, also known as Talyllyn Lake or Llyn Mwyngil, is a large glacial ribbon lake formed by a post-glacial massive landslip damming up the lake within the glaciated valley. It is situated at the foot of Cadair Idris, in the Snowdonia mountain range of Gwynedd, Wales. The River Dysynni flows from the lake, through the village of Abergynolwyn, and discharges into the sea north of Tywyn

In the evening I visited Lake Vyrnwy and tried out some long exposures using Welding Glass in front of the lens to give the clouds some “movement”.

Lake Vyrnwy Nature Reserve and Estate (Llyn Efyrnwy) is an area of land in Powys, Wales, surrounding the Victorian reservoir of Lake Vyrnwy. Its stone-built dam, built in the 1880s, is the first of its kind in the world.
