The story behind this image

An Indian summer in late September 2020 was all the encouragement my wife Liz and I needed to drive down from our home in North Wales, through the Snowdonia National Park, and onto the welsh coast at Barmouth and the Mawddach estuary.

We spent a delightful couple of hours exploring Barmouth and walking over the famous railway bridge across the estuary before heading upstream to the old wooden toll bridge, crossing the river Mawddach at Penmaenpool.

Penmaenpool proved to be a delight, and while we sat in the sun by the riverbank sipping coffees outside the George III pub I just couldn't resist getting my camera out, shooting a variety of time lapse, video, panoramic collages and single images such as this one, featuring the span of the bridge, backed by rolling hills and with a set of very odd railway signals on the near bank, left over from when there was a station here, closed since 1965.
