Thank you so much for your comments and votes on my Sunflower upload, much appreciated as always.

Today's offering was taken in Talybont-on-Usk in the Brecon Beacons, Wales while we were on holiday there recently. I lovely place but very muddy and treacherous underfoot! It rains a lot in Wales, hence the lush greenery!

No, there were some very heavy rain showers that day and we had young children with us, so we just parked up and walked up to the large waterfall and back down the other side. Still extremely slippery though!

A lovely evocative image - reminds me of a time gone back and when I lived in a much wetter area than I do now! The lush greenery and bracken is so attractive with the running water.

To think we thought Ireland was The Emerald Isle - we've got strong competition
with all that lush green scenery.
I see you've gone for a fast shutter speed to freeze the water which is great fora change.
Nice diagonal interest.
