Time for the next photo from Wales. While most of the time Wales showed us it's sunny side the first two days were rainy. But what better to do with rainy days than shooting waterfalls.
And South Wales has quite a lot waterfalls, here is a photo of the Melincourt waterfall. This was fun shooting, it was raining constantly and I was the only person exploring the waterfall.. had it completely for myself :-) With an umbrella attached to my tripod through an umbrella holder (quite nice piece of equipment for just 5 Euro) I was standing in the rain for more than one hour searching out different comps. I like this particular comp because it has all that nice foliage included in the picture, the tones were intense. The main waterfall shows through in the background. It might not look so big here but it is roughly 15 meters high I think.
Sgwd Rhyd Yr Hesg (Melincourt Falls in English) very picturesque set of waterfalls near Resolven in the Vale of Neath in South Wales. They are formed by the brook plunging 80 feet over a resistant band of 'Lower Pennant Sandstone'. They are a few miles to the South West of the main 'Waterfall Country' around Pontneddfechan, but if you are down that way, I would recommend making the detour.
