Rhiwargor Falls by Xerces Rhiwargor Falls by Xerces
I got a rare day out today to Lake Vyrnwy. w00t

Rhiwargor falls is a very spectacular part of the area. These are the lower falls, since I'd have needed some climbing equipment to get to the higher part (which is annoying because the higher part is much more impressive).

Lake Vyrnwy is a reservoir that supplies Liverpool with its water (not Wales, ironically) and below the depths of the lake is a submerged village that was flooded to form it. You can't see any of the buildings, but there is a tree that is on top of a hill underwater that you can still see poking out of the surface.

I got a few shots for stock that will be available at ~XerStock soon, which will include the straining tower

I can't imagine how nice the upper part of the falls is. I mean, I can't grasp the fact that this shot is real. It's the kinda thing that people paint as those little forest-oasis kinda scenes.

...wish I could go there. Be an awesome place for a picnic or something.

i'd say so, yeah. It's impressive up top, but it is damn high, and you'd need to cross the river to get to the main bit, which involves wellies! but it's a beautiful spot. i have some pics of the whole thing, but they just aren't in the detail i'd want :-(
