Re: Llyn y Fan Fawr

Lovely photo Mark. I was sitting back admiring it when I called up Google Maps to see where it is, as I was wondering how I missed it during my wander through Wales in 2016.

Re: Llyn y Fan Fawr

Thanks Larry. Its quite accessible if you park on a roadside opening, nearest the lake. Its about 1.5 miles from there, with a couple of hundred metres climb. This area is the western part of the Brecon Beacons, which is far less popular than the eastern end.

The mountain behind the lake is also quite walkable, but not for me now. Used to walk them in the mid nineties...……... There is also a Llyn y Fan Fach a mile of two away...

Another panorama attached...……..

Re: Llyn y Fan Fawr

I think that I am a bit too much of a sub-tropical plant to consider making use of that "bathing pool".

Re: Llyn y Fan Fawr

It's lovely to see all those Mark. Never mind not smiling. At least you weren't biting your tongue while concentrating (like some people might).

Well aside from him, justly claimed, Messrs Thomas and Burton spring to mind! https://binged.it/35glhMA

Thanks, but now I am looking for a waterproof camera bag. My bag has a cover to put over it, but alas I did not realise how heavy the rain was, so all inside got quite damp......

All dried now, but the Em1 ii did mist up briefly a couple of days later......
