Visit to Wales last week

Discussion in 'Scenic, Architecture, and Travel' started by Veneboer, Feb 26, 2013.

  1. Just came back from a short trip to Wales. I've not finished all my photo's yet but here are allready three nice ones (in my opinion; hope you like them). They were shot at the Elan Valley (Trail) with my NEX 7 and 10-18 mm. Hope to post more soon.

    excellent I love the colors, very well done a bit saturated but I like it, the blue sky, did you use any filter? It looks amazing.

  6. Thank you all. No filters were used. I was very lucky that day that there was no wind at all and the sun was bright and low in the sky.

    this one is brilliant, the arches look like tunnels, a superb choice of vantage point.

  14. A small update in my Wales topic. All shot with my new 10-18 on my Nex7.

    (1)(A, B, C en D) On the way to the top of the Pan Y Fan. This is one of the higher peaks in National Park Brecon Beacons. It took us quite some time to get to the top but it was worth it.

    The clarity of these shots is astounding. Living where there is frequently a lot of haze/dust in the air it's a real treat to see pics from somewhere that that doesn't have that issue. Thanks so much for sharing these. :th_salute:

    I'm a sucker for wide-angle landscapes. That lighthouse photo is especially captivating to me. Thanks for showing me a place I someday hope to visit.
