My next trips were to Snowdonia national park in north wales, the first location was Fairy glen , near Betws-y-coed . it is a deep gorge with the river running through and very large boulders all around, access is difficult having to climb down very slippery steps!
As soon as i got down to the gorge i found the light was looking really nice for a change, i knew i only had a very short time to get the shots i wanted before the light went!!!!!!!!!! and this shot has all the atmosphere i wanted to capture!
Shot with 100mm L macro !
The river widens out below this gorge and long exposures create trails on the waters surface!
These two frames were all i got before the light went, but on the walk back to the car i found these oaks beautifully lit up !
Shot with 70-300 is
The Nant francon valley waterfalls where next, i have only visited once in summer so hoped they would look good with a bit of autumn colour!, and i was not disappointed! lol
here is one of the first shots, a wide view of the waterfall!
And a longer shot! taken with 100mm Macro lens!
I then started to walk down the valley towards the direction of the Devils kitchen, a really nice walk in the ever increasing sunshine!
I came to a lovely small waterfall with good colours
Continuing down the track just to shoot a few shots down the valley!
At the end of this path it opens out into the valley floor with Devils kitchen in the distance!
A last view before walking back to the car!
Another great trip!
All shots taken with canon 5d2, 17-40L , 100mm L macro.
