Travelogue

12th August 2016

A long week-end in the Elan Valley, Powys, Wales.
We booked a long week-end in an apartment in Rhayader specifically to attempt some photographs of the Perseid Meteor shower. Alas, the weather forecast wasn't as good as promised and over the three nights we didn't have an hour of clear skies. However, we had a wonderful drive around the reservoirs on Saturday before an afternoon visit to Gigrin Farm Click here . . . to photograph the Red Kites.Sunday we drove along the valley and were able to photograph some stunning reflections in the water, which somewhat made up for the lack of seeing any meteors.
