So, this new camera.
I was out with the dog a day or two ago and tried to grab a quick shot and, in trying to set the camera up quickly, I obviously changed something which, I couldn't locate so ..... I reset the camera.
Skip forward to yesterday, 14th, of for a good walk through Forest Fawr and Forest Ganol, with said camera.
A beautiful day, with lots of dappled light and shade in the forest and many, many shots taken ...... in JPEG!
I love this plant, there's a huge range of colours in the berries.
These old iron mines provide the backdrop to many a movie and Doctor Who, for those fans out there.
I LOVE these mines / caves but, I'm not a fan of going in too far.
Further along, there's another iron mine but not as glamorous, more, dangerous so it's not advertised as a kids visit.
Looking down on the second mine entrance, from the main trail above.
Walking into the second mine.
The actual entrance to the mine has a very large pool of water blocking it, sadly full of rubbish.
The mine entrance, showing the trees above. I guess one day, after horrendous rains, this will collapse.
How I wish the captions worked :(
A little further down this side trail, lies a sealed up mine entrance, I don't know if it was originally to the mine above or a completely different one.
So, aside from getting some nice shots, when I went to edit them ..... I prefer to shoot RAW, so to speak.
Check and check again.
Still, a lovely walk, with the Forest cafe mid point.
The second half of the walk was up through Forest Ganol on the opposite side off the valley.
I love the graffiti on the old woodman hut.
