The clear landscape didn’t last for long at the top of my walk this week to Penlle’r Castell on the heights of the Mawr above Swansea. As I walked back down to my car it quickly became a very misty descent as the heavy weather set in again.
The wind turbines of Mynydd y Gwair wind farm stood within the murky cloud. I find these objects of sustainable energy production fascinating things but if you don’t like them, you need only turn your head in any other direction for an equally fantastic view of this Welsh landscape. The wind was not particularly strong but it was at this point in my walk that it began to rain.
