Sgwd Dwilli Uchaf waterfall - Coed y Rhaiadr, Brecon Beacons NP, Wales

Back from our trip to Wales, or in this case, should I say 'Middle Earth'? This is the Sgwd Dwilli Uchaf waterfall in The Wood of the Waterfalls (Coed y Rhaiadr) in the Brecon Beacons national park, Wales. You can get there by a 6 mile walk which will lead you to four falls in total. When I arrived at the scene, I totally forgot about space and time. It's like walking into a fairy tale world. It was a partially overcast day with a splash of sunlight now and then. Perfect conditions to shoot waterfalls. And that's all I did for the rest of the morning and the greater part of the afternoon. I could have kept on for days. It was one of the most pristine sceneries I've ever seen. Eventually Janneke had to bring me back to the real world and on our walk back, the heavens opened and we got a severe 'cooling down'. Man, we got soaked!
