Revisiting the fallen tree at Henrhyd falls

I recently revisted Henrhyd falls to try and create something similar to my favourite waterfall shot but found very little water. Instead I dug this out of my archives and tried a black and white portrait style.


Henrhyd falls on the river Nant Llech tumbles 90ft (27metres) over a single drop of sandstone known as Farewell rock - into a narrow gorge. The tree in this picture has been there for as long as I have visited the area, indeed it wasnt the first tree to attract attention here.

Sir William Edmond Logan discovered fossilised trees at the base of the falls which are now exhibited outside swansea Museum (Wikipedia).
