Land of my Fathers….well fathers, mothers, fathers, fathers or some such!

I have, at least that’s what I am told, some Welsh ancestry that I like to think fully qualifies me to wear the ol’ red shirt and support the Welsh Rugby team on appropriate occasions. Caban Coch reservoir

Just before Wales were robbed by Fiji in the world cup I spent a lovely week in the land of my Fathers. I did have my proper camera kit with me but occasionally I was just caught off guard and the phone was the only thing to hand. On the first day driving & walking around the Elan valley reservoirs I saw this. The light looked to be changing for the better, the clouds moving in the right direction and worth a proper picture. By the time I’d bobbed back to the car, a couple of minutes away, to grab camera bag, tripod etc. the below had happened!!!


The weather perked up as we carried on round the reservoirs though, a pleasant time was had by all and the occasional photographic opportunity presented itself. The dog does get a bit bored waiting around for me to set up the camera but at least he didn’t pee up my tripod 🙂
