G'day Simon

The contrast between 'bleak & forbiddding' and 'heavily wooded' is quite quite stark, but then I see the steepness of the hillsides and wonder how the sheep & cattle get up & down ... and of course they do !

The final image showing the farm way down below is 'cute' when I compare it to our Aussie farms where the paddocks go from 'here to the horizon', &/or where the farmer has a 200,000 hectare farm running 1 beast per hectare as the feed is so poor due to lack of water

Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks .... thanks as always for showing us your world
Phil

Yes, farms in Oz are quite different... with the Welsh hillside ones being nestled in very small areas of flat-ish land... and as for the steep climbs... if the animals can make it.... so can I....

The photos show an almost painted landscape in the distance, but considerable sharpness and detail up close. I agree with others who have commented on the steepness of the terrain. My knees, however, wouldn't find it welcoming! Thanks for showing us another part of the earth.

What a beautiful landscape, I love this sort of stark yet beautiful landscape. I really like your second shot with the stone wall.
