Ancient woods and waterways...

by David Swatton September. 14, 2018 273 views

The first part of the walk up to Llyn Cau rises steeply (very steeply) up a hillside covered in ancient woodland and criss-crossed by streams and cascades tumbling over mounds of rocks. Scientists believe the woods have grown here since the end of the last Ice Age about 10,000 years ago. I love dense, dark woods like these (perhaps I had Druid ancestors), especially the vibrant greens of the moss, lichens and leaves and it was such a contrast with the barren rocky landscape ahead.

Thanks. No, I didn't us ND filters and no tripod either. I don't like carrying a lot of stuff with me... and I'm lazy!

Then you must have the steadiest hands ever. Excellent shots in that case :)

LOL... no, I just use available supports - sturdy trees make excellent props to wedge a camera up against deciduous tree
