The Dell

By Mynett
Good morning

Thank you for all the lovely messages and clicks on my previous image, it is so encouraging.

While on the same trip I managed a nice walk up one of the hills near Festiniog, and it was a lovely sunny warm day, I so enjoyed reaching the top with the sky larks and the gorse, the blue sky and the scenery, but what a delight it was to find this lovely waterfall on the return journey. We could hear the water gushing and found the nearby stream - Cliff followed it down to this and encouraged me to follow, - and was so pleased that I did. Firstly we found the "Primrose Tree" of my earlier upload and then this. The fall was about as high as a bungalow and dropped down in two levels, this it the lower part of it. I did get some full length shots but the surrounding trees were casting too much shadow which as a photo is too much of a distraction. I quite like the close up one here as the rocks on the far side were strewn with little primroses. I have tried to capture the beauty of the moment - not sure if I have done it justice so over to you Smile

Have a lovely weekend, bar b que tonight mmmmm

I like the way you have light and shadows here but very little context. We're looking in with the light, if that makes sense.

What a lovely cool glade. So pretty I'd like to be there myself in this hot weather.

A perfect place to visit on a warm day and clearly, to be either a Primrose or Moss living there permanently! Perfect viewing on this hot, sticky morning!

Wow, your write-up certainly makes it sound like a super day out, Linda! A very delightful capture of the gushing water here, and is a must for viewing large to appreciate the detail.

P.S. Enjoy your barbecue tonight - it's certainly the weather for me a sausage! Smile

Indeed a lovely shut and what a lovely write up, reminded me of some adventure memories I had few years ago. I would luv to see a wider view with full waterfall 2 steps in future, looking forward, if you have captured though.

A beautiful shot, Linda, with the water captured so nicely. As of this moment I am far too warm and could comfortably sit at the bottom of your shot and let the water pour over me.
I'm not saying that would improve your image (or mine for that matter), however!!!
Regards, Ronnie.
