Snowdonia River #1

The story behind this video

Just outside Betws-y-coed, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, lies this hidden gem of a little river, the Afon Lledr.

At this early stage of its life the river flows through a secluded wooded glen, under an old stone arch bridge and over some fantastically water shaped rocks. (Very slippy!)

Accessed from a convenient layby, you have to push through some wild rhodedendron bushes to reach the river bank and then hazard those slippery rocks to reach this vantage point giving a view both up and down the river, taking in a wonderful old stone arch bridge and a series of small waterfalls.

Having got there on a lovely summer's afternoon I decided to make the most of my perch in the middle of the river to take this video, and the stills for three time lapse videos, Betws-y-coed timelapse #2, Waterfall timelapse #3 and Waterfall Timelapse #4, catching the movement of the water as it tumbled over the rocks.
