Autumn arrives in Wales – the Aberglaslyn Gorge


While I was on holiday in Crete for two weeks, in 30+ degree sunshine, autumn arrived in Snowdonia. It seems early this year but I probably think that every year. There’s certainly plenty of colour to be had. The day was slightly overcast, good for going to water and woods. I went to the Aberglaslyn Gorge, next to Beddgelert. A spectacular sight any time of year but a prime spot for autumn with a great mix of trees and rushing river.

Towards evening I moved out of the gorge and drove down to Capel Curig and Llynnau Mymbyr in the hope of getting some good sunset shots. These weren’t to be but I did take one close-up of heather with the lake and the very vague outline of the Snowdon horseshoe in the background.

This day also marked the return of my Olympus OMD-EM10, with a brand new replacement lens.
