Croeso i Cymru / Welcome to Wales

Although I have posted some pictures before of the views from where we now live, I thought I’d kick off the start of this new chapter in my/our lives and this blog, with a few images taken from or around our house – to set the scene as it were. You should glean from the pictures below that the weather is quite a dominant feature here in North Wales.

All of these photos were taken sometime over the past 12 weeks.

    • Thanks Rudi. Yes, we do live on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park and the area of land, just along the estuary from where we live, is called the Morfa Harlech National Nature Reserve. (I should have posted a map, but maybe next time). 😊


  1. So many amazing views, very beautiful images from where you are, where you decided to settle down, seemingly a very good choice! You’ve managed to capture the atmosphere in your pictures, emotions that we are affected by, depending on the weather.
    I don’t remember your pictures getting that big, they fill the whole screen which gives an exciting feeling to be there by yourself. Nicely done! πŸ˜€

    • Thanks Anita, I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. I believe the photos have always been quite big, when viewed via the gallery. Though I’ve just looked at the post and the panorama photos span the whole width of my screen now and the others are lined up with the top (or at least just underneath the Chrome ‘rows’) – leaving just a gap at the bottom for the title/description. Maybe something has changed in WordPress. πŸ€” But you are right, they do look much better and do give that illusion that you are closer to the subject. πŸ‘πŸ‘

  2. That’s an amazing landscape, Mike. Huge congratulation. A marsh is a great place to explore.
    I hope you will be overwhelmed with animals and birds you never expected to see. You might even need a new book instead of the butterflies book πŸŽπŸ˜‰

    • Yes, we’ve been trying to identify the various birds on the estuary. There have been plenty of ducks, geese and wading birds, but they are too far away to get a decent picture. 😌 (Makes butterfly photography seem easy!)
