Barmouth estuary. Its an even nicer view from a bit higher up (this was from ~400m.).
A very pleasant surprise round the side of Cadair. A empty solitude painted in greens and blues.
The Dysynni valley. Smashing place really, Cadair is on the L side looking quite different. The implausible lump on the right is craig yr aderyn. Once a sea cliff, and still populated by some very stubborn sea birds!
Cadair from the Dysynni valley - the bulk of the arm coming off Cwm Amarch rather dominates.
Craig yr aderyn. Making little more sense from closer up! Cormorants even apparently, although I only really saw seagulls.
The tarrens. Exceedingly lonely grassy hills.
Finised off down Cardigan bay. No dolphins or anything, but one raven moderately close.
Following the 'coast' route from Aberdyfi (a lovely place) to ~Borth. Via Machynlleth, because obviously it would be too hard to stick a bridge over the bay!
Took a second or two to process this. They were only a couple of little yappy things, so seems a bit surprising they'd follow people.
The rather nice Welsh coastal path way marker. Put up in prodigious quantities!
The Tarrens from the other side to the earlier photo. Back down the river I came up on the morning. Slightly silly this :)
Quite a lot of effort to get back to the other side of the estuary from the morning!
Aberystwyth in some 'lovely' Welsh weather. Time to turn East to the border. Several big rivers carving E from here, I went along the ystwyth.
It wasn't actually terribly wet, although it was earlier. Just more low cloud/humidity etc.
An atmospheric interlude, complete with tree auditioning for a sword of Damocles.
Some half decent waterfalls on the upper ystwyth.
Cwn ystwyth. Rather destroyed by mining, not that you could really see it with the cloud in place! No choice but to plough on up & over though. Thankfully the potential heavy driving rain held off.
A slightly silly bit of route planning (given the weather) to go round the reservoirs. They're rather nice as it happens but quite a long way and the cloud wasn't moving.
A hill, in sunshine no less? Wow.
This is actually typical of the whole remainder of the walk - very pleasant, hilly, pastoral lanscapes. Also a surfeit of kites and buzzards, not my super compact x 3 zoom thing can photograph them!
Knighton, very pleasantly placed. This whole walk was basically very pleasant cf the previous photograph.
Another random bit of rolling pastoral views.
More rolling pastoral things, but the odd hint of some of the rather savagely steep valleys coming up.
The Shropshire hills/plain - it was a much better view than the photos make it appear. Stipperstones on the right hand side, with the odd grey glint from its quartzite.
Honestly, I think the camera rather over did the colour here. It was getting seriously hot though - this was the day before the 30 degree heat hit. I actually ran out of water coming into Montgomery but easy to fix once there.
