It's late October in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, and the trees are displaying their Autumn finery for a few brief days before early winter storms strip the branches bare for another year.
My wife Liz and I always make a point of visiting as many of Snowdonia's autumnal beauty spots as possible during rare periods of sunshine, drinking in the riot of colours and earthy fragrances that permeate the landscape at this time of year.
Among our 'must see' autumn destinations in Snowdonia is Llyn Mymbyr, surrounded by trees on one side and bracken coated hillsides on the other, this is a place where the rich colours of nature really come to the fore.
The lovely tree featured in this composition is growing (and still is!) along the path that leads down from the road, past the Plas-y-Brenin outdoor centre, and onto the small bridge that crosses the head of Llyn Mymbyr.
