Hello,
Thank you to everyone who made comments on my site over the past 10 days. I apologise for not replying but I have just spent the past few days in Sonwdonia (North Wales) which I dearly love.
The sound of running water, the singing birds, the multitude of species of ferns and the beautiful pink rhododendron ponticum covering huge areas of the mountains really made for a relaxing time.
It is so nice to cut yourself off from civilisation and unwanted noise. Just to be at one with nature beside a roaring river or waterfall, surrounded by beautiful carpets of moss of varying species.

Hello Mossy! You've got a fantastic eye for composition, these photographs are terrific, you should show them in an exhibition! They're really great...the Welsh Tourist Board should be very pleased with you! You should pm Hywel to have a look, he loves anything tranquil, and I just know he'd love this gorgeous blog! Thank you for putting this on, Mossy, it's going straight on to my favourites!

You've visited the area of North Wales that we love as well. It is a very tranquil and beautiful place to chill and often we take day trips to the area and looking at all your lovely photos makes me want to set off right away....the waterfall and churning river really shows how much rain there has been in recent days/months.

Very pleased that you had a relaxing time away and many thanks for sharing your photos. :)

Snowdonia is somwhere my family always go every year. We were there last Easter too.
It's something there that we don't find somewhere else...
