Llyn Gwynant

Llyn Gwynant is a lake in Snowdonia, Wales.
Llyn Gwynant lies on the River Glaslyn, in the Nant Gwynant valley, and is about 2 km north east of Llyn Dinas; the village of Bethania lies between them.
Snowdon lies 3 km to the north west. The lake is natural, having been formed by glacial action and is 50 hectares in size. It is a popular place for canoeing and kayaking with easy access from the A498 road which runs along its south bank.
It was used as a filming location in the 2003 film ‘Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life’.

      These are wonderful...#1 is my favourite..because of the lower viewing angle...gives me a feeling of more layers!!
      (Does that make sense?)

      Beautiful shots Sadhya - the difference in landscape between Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire is considerable - but both have their timeless pull on those who have been blessed to live there - funny ' when I hear the words "come home again to Wales' I always think it applies to me, and not to the time when I lived in less than scenic Merthyr - although even there one has the Brecon Beacons.......Wales is just beautiful - enough said

      The names and spellings are somehow strange to me... But this place is breath takingly beautiful. :-)
