  • A Wintery walk around Llyn Ystradau

    Following a trip on the Festiniog Railway the other day I was inspired to go back and recreat a photo of the railway from across the shores of LLyn Ystradau. Can safely say this is not pleasnt walking country, All the paths had turned to streams for the most part, not somewhere to go without wellies!

    The weather was typical for Blaeanu Ffestiniog, miserable, although it was just good enough for the across the lake shots, by the time I'd walked round and had a peep roud the Moelwyn Lead/Zinc mine it had really started going downhill.

    As always 14-42mm Autofocus was just that little bit off to get the railway in, sppose it's my own fault should have checked with LIve view as I was using the Tripod for once!

    Merddin Emrys heads a rather long up train, the old Moelwyn tunnel visible just left of centre, as well as the original trackbed.

    I especially like the last shot. Now if you'd let the train run into shot by another second....

      I did, but shutter speed was too low and it blurred a little

        Pity - it always happens like that. Its a lovely composition otherwise.

        I had the same occurence when I was photographing the Hogwarts Express on the Glenfinnan viaduct some years back. Grr!!
