Cwm Prysor Viaduct apr 20 th

It is Easter weekend, and we have driven the van down to Dolgellau for the 4 day holiday.   I have decided to get up early tomorrow and drive up to Cwm Prysor viaduct which is about 20 minutes drive from the campsite.

Walking towards the viaduct , the view down the valley I have just driven up,  its quite warm and going to be a sunny day.  I passed an interesting bridge over a river on the way , with low mist it looked like a good location and I wish I had stopped as I passed, but will have a look on the way back later.

The path is the old railway track, now disused as this viaduct which was opened in 1882 closed in 1961.

                       I have reach the location, it is 105 ft high at its centre and 490 ft in length.

             Time to get the drone up in the air, this is a perfect subject to photograph from the air .

This is a 9 frame panorama showing the entire area , you can see where the railway continued along on the left side.

                                                     Phone shot of the bridge arches.

Vertoramas really show the view, with the curved viaduct and the rail line snaking away down the valley.

                    9 frame panorama, which has emphasized the curvature of the bridge slightly.

                                Topdown over the Viaduct, love the shadows from the pillars.

That's the last image , now to go back for breakfast , but I will stop off at the location I passed on the way this morning.
Having found it , the river is very low with hardly any flow. taking a few quick images it clearly shows how low the water is .

Time to head back to the van now for pancakes :)
