Landscapes from Waun Fach, Brecon Beacons

Sep 18, 2016 | Photography, Travel

Waun Fach is one of the highest peaks in the Brecon Beacons and is the highest peak East of Pen y Fan. Located just South of Talgarth Waun Fach is easily accessible and on a clear day the views are spectacular, or as I found out even on a misty day they can be equaly as spectacular.

I Set off on a Wednesday afternoon to try and find some locations on East side of the Brecon Beacons, I was hoping to get a good sunset shot accross the National Park with the dominating peaks of Pen y Fan and Corn Du as the central point.

I arrived at Pengenffordd around 4pm and set off up the hills, I’ve never actually been up Waun Fach before and never expected to come back with any pictures on that day. I wanted to just see what was there. I slowly made my way up the first ridge and every time I turned around the light was spectacular. I never though the mist and bright light would make for any images but a few interesting shots presented themselves. 

From Pengenffordd you can want to the summit of Waun Fach pretty easily and quickly, it’s only 3 miles from where you can park up. I’ve mapped out the path I took to get to Waun Fach, I’ll probably go back soon and do a longer walk and write an article.

How to get there?

Finding the location to start was a bit confusing so I thought I would make it easier for others by incluing the details here. You can park on a small farm lane, there is space on the side of the lane to park. Not sure how busy it gets but I never saw a single person the day I went.
