It had been pouring with rain in and around Capel Curig in Snowdonia, North Wales for the past few days, but with a break in the weather my wife Liz and I finally got out of doors for a look around.
The Afon Llugwy river that runs alongside the A5 trunk road for a distance at Capel Curig was in full spate, a most impressive sight as the raging waters steamed over submerged rocks and cascaded down waterfalls.
So it was out with the camera and tripod, with me having to adopt some uncomfortable positions hanging out over stone walls by the side of the road to get the video clips used in this short compilation.
But after a few minutes the rain rolled back in and it was time to retreat to the Moel Siabod café for a much needed hot cup of coffee.
Well worth the effort, and a bit of a soaking, to see and film such dramatic action though!
