Llyn Crafnant

Normally when I visit Llyn Crafnant I stay at the northern end, more because it’s convenient than anything else. At the southern end of the lake is a gate that was locked the very first time I went there. so I thought it was private land.

But last week I decided to go back down to the far end of the lake, mainly because I was looking for something different, and interestingly the gate was unlocked. Now here comes the difficult decision. Go through and park the car, hoping no one comes back and locks the gate. Or just turn around and head back. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, but this is a remote part of Snowdonia so I was still a bit wary of getting locked in.

Look what I found, an old abandoned building, there’s lots of them in the national park, but this is one I hadn’t photographed and with that backdrop it had to be done.

This is just a test post, to help me choose a theme that will show off my photographs as large as possible. When I was using Flickr if you clicked on the photograph you got to see it much larger. I don’t think that happens when you use the WP Media Server

    unexplored areas are always a big temptation
