Dyffryn Mawr
Lens: Sigma 18-50 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Trefor, North Wales 
Posted By: bychan, 11-13-2014, 01:37 PM

This is part of my daily (or nightly), dog walking route. Known locally as Dyffryn Mawr (roughly translated as large valley), it's a great example of a glaciated V-shaped valley.

It was very gloomy when these were taken, with the camera perched on a gate's pillar.

K5 and Sigma 18-50 and Cokin GND.

not to mention the luscious colour in the foreground that fades off into the distance. Sweet!
