It was the first day we have had in the Brecons with a decent forecast so off we went. Very changeable conditions but we had about 20 minutes of amazing light while we were at the top. A bit pic heavy as I have quite a few I liked from today.

The forecast isn't great, I was hoping sunset today might have had promise but the rain set in about half an hour ago and tomorrow isn't looking great. Off to the Elan valley tomorrow for a couple of days and I'm hoping for better conditions that it was on Monday. The trees are just starting to change here and I hope to catch them in colour.

We are in the caravan club site at Brecon Barry, having the most amazing meal currently in the Three Horseshoe Inn at Groesffordd. The food is spectacular.

Lovely garden you have there - bet you grow quite a few tomatoes in those acres :grin:

Great set, Barry - lovely part of the world

I can only agree with what has been said, the light in the first one is great.

Absolutely loving it Scott, I'll be sad when we have to rejoin the real world.

Beautiful shots and gorgeous scenery. Great shots Barry!
Thanks David, it was one of those rare times when great light did all the world and I only had to point a camera at it.

Great set, Barry - lovely part of the world
Thanks Ed. It certainly is!

I can only agree with what has been said, the light in the first one is great.
Thanks!

By the time we got back down it was heaving and muppets had filled up the turn round area with parked cars. I nearly got my black marker out to write "You Total T0ss3r" on several windscreens but my good mood stopped me. That and the fact I had already turned round when I arrived at 9am!

#3. Love the colors.
Thank you, it was a beautiful morning.

Oh, and #7 is spectacular.
Thanks!

Cracking set. For the drama, and the feeling of intimidation of the area, the first is my pick.

Great set of images and a very interesting landscape, the low cloud makes for quite dramatic light. :thumbsup:

Very striking indeed: from viewing the very first image, my train of thought, which continued and was only intensified, was best described as "an ultimate view of our dependence upon illumination" - showing, to me at least, how we all depend upon that most important aspect of natural resources, namely sunlight and the way that sunlight is controlled and by which natural means that is accomplished.

I'm being too verbose most likely, but this is my immediate, straight-off-the-top, impression and these kind of images convey so much more than the content of each one.
