All rush, no gush ...

... particularly as the water levels are considerably lower than normal in South Wales. You can see the overflow is actually a good five feet above the current level of Pontsticill Reservoir.

Will have to go back another time to watch the water flowing into the drain.

One from a quick stop-off here with Fran on our way back home ... cheers for looking in. I'll update all the Exif Details later when I get home.

Nice one Mate...worth a lie in to get a shot like this.If you had gone to the coast early you would have been rewarded to.
Hope you had a good break despite the weather.

Pontsticill is looking particularly attractive here Paul. Clearly the good weather was closer to home. Of the five days in Glencoe it only stopped raining last night and this morning. Perhaps I should have gone to Nash Point instead Wink
