Snowdonia, Fairy glen and Nant francon valley waterfalls 10/12th november 2011

My next trips were to Snowdonia national park in north wales,  the first location was Fairy glen , near Betws-y-coed .  it is a deep gorge with the river running through and very large boulders all around, access is difficult having to climb down very slippery steps! 
As soon as i got down to the gorge  i found the light was looking really nice for a change,  i knew i only had a very short time to get the shots i wanted before the light went!!!!!!!!!!  and this shot has all the atmosphere  i wanted to capture!   

Shot with 100mm L macro !

The river widens out below this gorge and long exposures create trails on the waters surface!

These two frames were all i got before the light went, but on the walk back to the car i found these oaks beautifully lit up !

Shot with 70-300 is

The Nant francon valley waterfalls where next,  i have only visited once in summer so hoped they would look good with a bit of autumn colour!,  and i was not disappointed!   lol

here is one of the first shots, a wide view of the waterfall!

17-40mm L

And a longer shot!  taken with 100mm Macro lens!

I then started to walk down the valley towards the direction of the Devils kitchen,  a really nice walk in the ever increasing sunshine!

I came to a lovely small waterfall with good colours

Continuing down the track just to shoot a few shots down the valley!

At the end of this path it opens out into the valley floor with Devils kitchen in the distance!

A last view before walking back to the car!

 Another great trip! 

All shots taken with canon 5d2, 17-40L , 100mm L macro.
