The story behind this image

A delightful hike around the heavily wooded foreshore of Llyn Trawsfynydd in North Wales brought my wife Liz and I to the spectacular Maentwrog Dam.

I'd never seen this dam before, so I took full advantage of the opportunity to photograph this amazing structure from as many different angles as possible, including some of the lovely surrounding countryside as well.
