Hi Folks,

I am planning a trip to North Wales.

I am specifically looking forward to landscape
photography.

Has anybody been shooting there ? I am looking
for tips for where to go for photography ... I still
have a week to plan.

So please any Welsh people or anybody who's been
there before please guide me on which are the scenic
places to visit ?

Cheers,

I am from a little village in North Wales called Rhosllanerchrugog do'nt choke on the name,a good place to visit is LLangollen visit thebbc.co.uk website where I live North East Wales go to pictures and you will see various photos of places to visit.Some of my photos are there,there is the Horseshoe Pass,and the River Dee running through LLangollen.Further west you have Snowdonia,Beddgelert and the LLyn Peninsular.Spectacular sunsets this time of the year,as the sun sets in the west over theBerwyn mountains.From the Halkyn mountains in Rhesycae you have great views over the Dee estaury towards the Wirral.From Llangollen itself you have great shots from the Eglwsig which is a limestonewith wonderful sea fossils from when it was once under the sea,and the ruins of Valle Crusis Abbey and the ruins of the castle overlooking Llangollen

Thanks a lot for the input. I really hope to get some good pictures there.
I was initially planning to go to Porthmadhog since thats closest to Snowdon.
But that was just uninformed guesswork.

I think I'll move on to Llangollen after reaching Cardiff. Earlier I was also
worried about the weather in North Wales since people here in the South
keep telling me its always raining in Wales. And that acually put me off a
little and I was almost thinking of not going there.

Hows the public transport there ? As I have seen on the map these places
seem quite close and can be reached by bus ...

Cheers,

I can't guarantee the weather especially at this time of the year,however public transport should be no problem.Maybe you would be better waiting until the spring, as outdoors the leaves are off the trees now,and no snow yet!,cheers Alan
