My normal landscape photography hunting ground takes in the coast, mountains, lakes and forests of beautiful North Wales, but every now and then my wife Liz and I will venture a bit further afield, especially if the weather looks good and we've got a whole free day to do what we want.
Such was the case on a Saturday in April 2018, with clear sunny skies and an empty diary.
So we decided to take the two and a half hour drive southwards through the Snowdonia National Park (a treat in itself) to Cregennan Lakes, nestled in the mountains above the Mawddach Estuary and the seaside towns of Barmouth and Fairbourne.
A hike around the twin lakes is a real treat and there's even a car park with a toilet. (Much needed after that two and a half hour drive!)
This panoramic view of the larger of the two lakes, with the peaks of southern Snowdonia in the background, was taken from the side of a hill just a few metres from the car park just before we started on our hike.
