Last Walk up the Hill

We paid our last visit to Wales for this year and took a final walk up the hillside while the weather was good, the night before had been very windy with heavy rain though we went off not expecting to see much other than a lot of wet ground

 The sheep did not seem bothered with us walking past

 This is a before and after shot of a gully, back in May it was bone dry now water runs freely down hill again

 Making little waterfalls on the way down

Further along near the view point is where we came across a problem
A tree had been blown over across the path

It was where the Fungus a took photos of a few months earlier

It had come down pulling over a couple more making the whole lot quite precarious looking

We went down to the view point to get past, lucky that was undamaged

Looking back it looked a mess

Near the bottom of the hill I noticed another casualty, an old tree had been blown over. We went off back to the caravan for a cup of tea and get ready to go home.

 Come back on Friday & I will show you what it was like from the Viewpoint on that day. That's it from me for this year, hopefully I will be back for more in the new year, till then
Merry Christmas & Happy New year 


  1. Some excellent shots from Wales. Have a good Christmas and I look forward to reading more of your posts next year.

  2. Amazing what rain can do! (this is from dry fire-ridden California). The wellies-- such memories.

  3. I used to go walking in the Brecon Beacons every Christmas for about ten years and these rather soggy but beautiful scenes bring back lots of happy memories of days spent on the hills.

    1. This places is not that far from them and if you go to the trig point on the hill you can see them on a good day

  4. Uma caminhada que deu belas fotografias e aproveito para desejar um Santo e Feliz Natal.
