Of all the thousands of paths, hikes and trails in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, one of the nicest is also one of the easiest - a stroll through the autumn woodlands along the Afon Llugwy at Betws-y-Coed.
This ancient woodland is at its best for just a couple of weeks in October, as the leaves turn golden and orange before being stripped away in the winter storms.
My wife Liz and I picked a beautiful day for our stroll, with the low angled sun bringing out the best of the colours in the trees, which reflected in the calm waters of the stream.
