Been up into the Brecon Beacons National Park today, for a walk along the "Four Falls" trail. This walk takes you past four pretty impressive waterfalls on the Felte and Hepste rivers.

This particular one pictured, is in my opinion the best of the four, and is called Sgwyd Eira which means "fall of snow". As you can see, you can walk right behind this waterfall from one side of the river to the other. Pretty impressive, and had Bethan grinning from ear to ear. It's a steep old walk down to the bottom, and an even steeper walk back up, but well worth it. You can also see I've tried to be a bit arty farty by slowing the shutter speed to get the illusion of the water flowing a bit.

There's something a bit spooky about the first photo. If you click on it to pull it up full size, and look just above the bottom of the waterfall to towards the right hand side, you can see a face in the water.

This is surely just a trick of light and water, but it makes you wonder and understand how people of olde might have thought places like this were the places of spirits. .
