An afternoon in the Meirionydd Gold belt

Pistyll Cain & Rhaeadr Mawddach

Not half as fun as you’d think that’s to the weather! After severe storms on Thursday ravaging Gwynedd I figured waterfalls would be a sure bet on Firday, so I headed down to Pistyll Cain & Rhaeadr Mawddach in the hills behind Ganllwyd. I’m not a fan of dull weather waterfalls that seem oh so popular with amateurs but on this occasion there was no choice, the weatherman lied about clear skies and rain was the order of the day.

No matter, the falls are difficult to photograph anyway as all the best angles are made impossible by the topography of the area.

On the way home a little dejected I was treated to a slight consolation prize in the form of some pleasing colours over Trawsfynydd, which I think makes up for the poor form at the falls.
