A Visit to Sgydau Sychryd

Sgydau Sychryd

It’s been quite a while since my last blog post so here is a short post to get things going again. We had a short walk today at Dinas Rock – naturally, I took my camera with me. When we arrived at Sgydau Sychryd, this view looking down onto the river, waterfall and bridge caught my eye so I spent some time composing this photo. I like the way the bridge is in the to ……

The Afon Mellte

Yesterday, I thought I would take a trip to the waterfalls near Ystradfellte. I arrived just before 9am so had the place to myself, which was nice. I normally walk along the path to get to the waterfalls without stopping, but this time I saw this view and stopped for a while.

I really struggled to find a shot and don’t think I really achieved what I wanted and I don’t think they really do justice to the landscape. Anyway, here are two of the photos:

Sgwd Gwladys

I was originally planning to go to the Pentwyn Reservoir this morning to get an autumn shot with Pen y Fan in the background, but the forecast wasn’t great so instead I went for a walk to Sgwd Gwladys with Paula and Piran. On the way I met someone who was on holiday – after having a chat for a while he realised that he knew my name and had seen some of my work ……
