A Garw walk after the rain……

Went out for a little walk tonight after the rain with the hopes of catching the last rays of sun before it disappeared behind the mountain.

I didn’t want to take out the tripod so I bracketed 3 exposures in camera and shot on continuous high and hoped for the best.

Along the cycle path……

Taken a little further down the cycle track near Pontyrhyl new stone walls erected with what looks like railway tracks(not 100% certain) with embossed writing referring to the Garw valley ( I am going to find out the actual story about this monument).

Little & Littler…..

I pass these horses on the way to and from work everyday but noticed an even smaller one yesterday so stopped to take some photos.

The foal was very nervous so I kept my distance but still managed to get a few.
