The story behind this image

High in the hills of the Snowdonia National Park, at the foot of Cader Idris, lie the beautiful Cregennan Lakes.

But it's not just the view of the lakes that takes your breath away, as just a short walk up a hill you reach this overview of the Mawddach Estuary as it reaches the West Wales coast in-between the seaside towns of Fairbourne and Barmouth.

This is just a lovely view, and with its long, thin composition it just begs to be captured as a panoramic collage.

Which is just what I did during my wife Liz's and my visit here in early summer 2017, taking in the fresh, clean air and uplifting scenery.

Good for both body and soul!
