The story behind this image

In the October of 2020, just before the Wales coronavirus lockdown, my wife Liz and I mananged a couple of days' getaway at the lovely Herons Lake Retreat at Caerwys in Flintshire.

The retreat is based around two lakes, and this view is of the upper lake, surrounded by autumnal woodland and featuring a small waterfall flowing over a weir at the far end.

Just a delightful, peaceful location.
