Sunny winter days are the perfect opportunity for a drive across the border to explore the Welsh countryside. ucked away between the hills are the 6 dams, 73 mile aqueduct and countless waterfalls of Elan Valley - a regular stop off on my family holidays to Wales when I was a child, and somewhere i've been desperate to return to with my camera for a long time!
We were lucky enough to visit whilst the reservoirs were full - sending thousands of gallons of water gushing over the Dams, which made for some amazing photos and the perfect chance to make use of my Super Stopper. The winter sunshine held out for us, lighting the landscapes perfectly and creating some beautiful reflections on the water. It was a chilly day spent hopping in and out of the car for warmth, but it was definitely worth the trip. I snapped hundreds of photos of this beautiful place and could have taken so many more if i'd had more time. Fingers crossed I'll be able to go for another adventure when the weather gets a little warmer, to see what else Elan Valley is keeping hidden between the rolling hills and meandering waters.
