Its strange to think summer is coming to an end, although August has felt like Autumn rather than Summer here in rainy England. With all the rain we’ve had I thought the Waterfall Country in the Brecon Beacons would be a fantastic sight and provide some good photo opportunities. How right I was.

I packed the photography gear and we set off towards the Brecon Beacons with my lovely girlfriend Sophie at the wheel of her Land Rover. All went well until she managed to get stuck in a ditch. Lucky, being in rural Wales we only had to wait 10 minutes until another Land Rover Defender drove past and offered to pull us out. I have to say what a friendly area, at least 15 cars stopped to check all was okay.

Eventually after driving through a ditch we made it to the Waterfall Centre at Pontneddfechan just West of Merthyr Tydfil, loads of parking and a few pubs to stop at for food and drink. You can walk straight from the carpark to the waterfalls within a few minutes, all super easy going.

I was surprised at how busy it was, being used to the other side of the Beacons I don’t usually see so many tourists. Its nice to see so many people out and about but it really annoys me to see so much rubbish left of the paths.

Anyway below are a few pictures I took along the way, you can click on these to enlarge them.
