During on of our many trips to Snowdonia, North Wales, my wife Liz and I stopped off for a cup of tea and a mooch around Betws-y-Coed.
Betws-y-Coed is a bit of a tourist trap, so we usually pass through on our way to less developed parts of the National Park, but on this occasion we decided to finally have a look around.
Looking around the old station, we were surprised to be confronted by a wire frame rhinocerous called Edith, filled with plastic bottle tops.
Zooming in to just feature the eye, made fom an old grinding disk, gave this somewhat surreal image composed of colours and shapes, wtih a not so hidden reference to the huge volume of plastic waste we generate and its subsequent effect on the natural environment.
