Brecon Beacons

The spectacular amphitheatre of Sgŵd Gwladus (Lady's Falls) where the Afon Pyrddin cascades over sandstone carved by meltwater from the last Ice Age. Foam from the waterfall and fallen autumn leaves create interesting patterns as eddies swirl around the rocks, stones and fallen branches on the river bed.

Sgwd y Pannwr (fall of the fuller or fall of the woollen washer) is the lowest of the 3 large waterfalls on the Afon (river) Mellte in the Brecon Beacons National Park. It is a fairly easy walk down to this waterfall but the steps back up are rather steep. The alternative path along the edge of the Afon Mellte is currently impassable due to high water levels caused by recent rainfall and snow melting higher up in the Beacons.

Dawn mist and clouds hang over the River Usk in this autumn view towards Llangattock Mountain (Mynydd Llangatwg) in the Brecon Beacons National Park. This image was actually taken from the accommodation on my recent Brecon Beacons and South Wales Coast PhotoTour, not a bad view to wake up to!

Sgwd y Bedol or the Horseshoe Falls on the Nedd Fechan or Little Neath River near Pontneddfechan in the Brecon Beacons National Park, south Wales. The upper part of the three tiered falls, just behind the fallen trees, has a distinct semi-circular shape - hence the name.

An image made in 'waterfall country' near Ystradfellte in the Brecon Beacons National Park last autumn. I watched as the whirlpool gathered in size and momentum and just about had enough time to set up the camera and tripod before it disappeared, one of those fleeting moments when it all comes together.

Sgwd Gwladus ('Lady's Falls') where the Afon Pyrddin falls 20 feet over a slanting sandstone shelf. Although the autumn colours are late to show this year there were still enough fallen leaves to create some nice swirling patterns beneath the waterfall.

Sgwd Yr Eira (fall of snow) waterfall on the Afon Hepste near Ystradfellte in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Pronounced skoo-deer-ira (screwdriver in English.....) this is the famous waterfall that you can walk under and the cold water was very welcome on a day when the temperature pushed 30 degrees centigrade.
