Autumn in the Snowdonia National Park - where else in the world would you want to be?

These three images were each taken a week apart, and show how the colours changed over the course of a fortnight.

I did go back again the weekend after the last photo, llanrwst-03, was taken, only to find the cottage bare of leaves.

So I'm glad I made the effort to drive there and photograph in the preceding couple of weeks.

I wonder what next year's autumn show will look like?
