Photo Day Out August 2021

Headed off to Snowdonia National Park north Wales, one of my favourite photographic locations an hour away.

Day 1
Cwm Idwal National Nature Reserve, a very popular attraction for visitors interested in walking, climbing, fishing and geology. In 1954, Cwm Idwal became the first National Nature Reserve in Wales.

There is a visitor centre and small car park with a refreshment kiosk that sells hot and cold snacks and toilets. Nant Ffrancon, Bethesda north Wales

The Devils Kitchen is the name given to the dark, black crack which splits the rock of Clogwyn y Geifr (Cliff of the Goat) between Y Garn and Glyder Fawr. Twll Du is known as the Devil’s Kitchen because of the plume of steam that is often seen rising from the crack resembling a chimney

Day 3

Found me at Aber Falls (Welsh: Rhaeadr Fawr) a waterfall near the village of Abergwyngregyn, Gwynedd, north Wales.
The waterfall is formed as the Afon Goch plunges about 120 feet over a sill of igneous rock in the foothills of the Carneddau range. It takes between 30 mins to an hour to reach from the £5 car park.
