Evening in the Park

By the time I took these photos on my iPhone on my way back home from Coedbach Park the Blackbirds had stopped singing to each other.

Unique circumstances – I am sorry I didn’t record them – there are so many of them in the park and the breeze was blowing the sound of motorway traffic out to sea so it could hardly be heard at all – like I always say, “the circumstances of what we see and here are always unique to the time and place!”

Swansea Canal

My chosen excursion on the second day of the Valleys Regional Park Community Tourism Conference in Margam Park was to two different points along Swansea Canal. The first was at Clydach where there is a Heritage Centre in Coed Gwilym Park.

The second was the Riverside Centre from where we walked along the canal into  Pontardawe. The weather was mostly misty but it did not spoil the outing and the birds didn’t seem to mind – as proven by the sound clips below.

Waterfalling Again – Melincwrt Waterfall

Our South Wales Valleys waterfall tour (see previous posts this week) also took us to Melincwrt Waterfall. A popular and easily accessible waterfall near Resolven on the A465, it was fairly gentle when we visited as the weather had been relatively dry. We were told we must visit again after a period of rain – shouldn’t be too long waiting then!

Some of these photos are available for sale at the StillWalks PhotoShelter site.

Soft Space in Swansea Bay

A good place for a walk – the expansive space of Swansea Bay when the tide is out and the cloud is low and I can feel the tickle of spray on my cheek.

Galloway Sunset

A sunset is a sunset and yet they are all unique. Even in the same place, each night its is different and never fails to move me.

Two more from the StillWalk “Coastal Walk, Evening” which you can see on the  Spring Walks page.
