On the Road to Betws-y-Coed

On the road
A photograph of the landscape of Wales as we were heading towards Betsw-y-Coed.

Last week, we spent a few days in North Wales.  And boy was the scenery beautiful and breathtaking.  in a way it reminded me of the Scottish and Cumbrian landscapes we’ve visited in the past.

My mother-in-law told of us of a little place that is beautiful and called Betws-y-Coed.  Naturally, we headed that way.  On one of our trips, we came to the little stone-built town with the train Station amongst a row of shops.  She had mentioned about waterfalls, but we never saw them on that day.  Anyway, to cut a long story short, we travelled back through Betws-y-Coed from another direction the following day and we found one of the waterfalls, she had mentioned.

Betsw-y-Coed Waterfalls

The waterfall flowed over some rocks and underneath a little bridge.  As I didn’t have my tripod with me and I wanted to capture the milky waters, I needed something to rest my camera on.  By luck, I used the actual bridge as a tripod in order to get the milky effect I wanted.  In order to get this effect, I used Aperture Priority on my camera and I set my aperture to f/22 and an ISO of 100.


For a makeshift tripod, I think the little bridge did perfectly well.
