The 4.45am alarm had never looked so good! 🏕️☁️🌄 . . The idea of unzipping a tent to views above a cloud inversion has been a sort of bucket-list type thing for me. Always loved the idea but didn't think I'd necessarily get to experience it. But with a bit of luck and an early alarm, this weekend definitely delivered! . . @vango_outdoor #imagesofwales#discoverwales
Soft shell Gilets and Poloshirts! A great uniform combination for the summer months! Both come in a range of colours and men’s and ladies fits...the gilet also comes in a jacket 👌🏻 #uniform#pcukbydesign
Last weekend's trip across Mid-Wales along the Trans Cambrian Way. Three big tough days and my first proper ride on the new bike. Really enjoying that e-bikes are letting Mum and Dad join for a good portion of the ride! #framebuilding#bikepacking
Out and about in the #elanvalley recording squares with @annegriffiths56 I sometimes veer off plants and find bugs instead. I so nearly trod on this beautiful guy, a Hawker Dragonfly #natureoftheelanvalley @elanlinks @elanvalley @visitmidwales
My happy place 💕 . There is something about wandering down a country lane that is so very relaxing ... it is definitely up there with my favourite pastimes (and may even rival my love of eating cake 😆)💫 . Hope you are enjoying the sunshine too ☀️
Slightly broken but happy - amazing weekend riding bikes in Elan Valley mid Wales with @mtbcymru @andy_benjafield and 9 other riders who patiently waited for me at the top of every hill! Pushed me out of my climbing comfort zone but the downhills paid back in ♠️... #inmyhappyplace#lovemtb
This was my first black and white using the new techniques in Lightroom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The whole idea here is to pick out the areas where the light should enhance the image and use that to draw people’s eyes to what you want them to see. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is beyond photography in its simplest form, more of an art than a process. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to do many more images like this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #art#socialenvy
1 photo in 3 parts......Claerwen Dam was part of the 1892 plans but was not built until after WWII. At 56m in height and 355m in length it is the biggest of the 6 Dams in the Elan Valley in mid Wales. It was opened in 1952. #wales#midwales
Twists and turns. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Really liked the way this valley looked from slightly above with the river meandering alongside the road. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . . . #folkgreen#rsa_outdoors
Who doesn’t love a good challenging grassy climb? We know the Elan Valley has tough climbs and for beginners that can be hard work 😓 but our ethos is encouragement - you might be capable of more than you think, and even if you push up the hills you are way ahead of everyone who decides not to challenge their boundaries at all. It all makes us stronger and like in a yoga class you know that plank pose won’t last forever so you just breath, notice the sensations of struggle and get through it 🙂 #feelgoodinyourbody#challengeyourself ...
