    Visiting Wales

    These are from a visit to friends in mid Wales a while back.
    First is at the Elan Valley visitor centre.
    The Elan Valley has a collection of reservoirs that were built to provide Birmingham with water back in Victorian times; they are still doing the job admirably.
    There are no pumps involved, the water runs downhill all the way and it takes about a week to make the journey.
    The system works so well because there is plenty of rain water available to keep the reservoirs full, and sure enough it was pouring down when we visited, this statue is a tribute to the bloke who built the dams, there have been suggestions that he got his mates to help him.
    Anyway it was raining while I stood for several damp minutes waiting for the photons to accumulate on the roll of Acros 100 in my Zero 2000. I rather like the fact that there was not enough light to illuminate his face.

    Does light still exist if we're not looking?

    Next is on a mountain road near Rhayader, not actually raining now. I think the bridge was only for the benefit of the sheep as it went nowhere except another big hill and I could have crossed the raging torrent by walking on the rocks.

    Couple of fine images Danny, I like the perspective of the first, it looks as if the statue is towering over the house in the background. The bridge is for the sheep, they have shorter legs than you and will get there little tummy's wet crossing the river.....

    I like the first image. A unique view. If it was mine I would try to burn in the facial features just enough to barely see them. Nice work.
