Very wet underfoot of any hill walking today which gave us a instinctive to have go at a some bird hide photography at the brilliant RSPB bird hide Coed y Capel at Lake Vyrnwy.
This hide has a abundance of wild birds due to the well maintained bird feeders and the hide itself is warm cosy and some seating, I can just sit there with the camera set if its raining its no problem, being situated by the cafe you can pop in for hot tea and good parking nearby and the RSPB shop nearby to as well as a walk around the wood sculpture park I managed to get some Photography of the Lake Vyrnwy Dan.
However I look at it Lake Vyrnwy has and always has provide me with some best Photography everything from wildlife, the landscape of the surrounding hills and mountains, the weather to can be interesting to Photography as well, and of course the elegant Gothic style straining tower were water starts is long journey to Liverpool.
Lots of interesting history surrounds the Lake including sacrifice the of the drowned village with people losing there homes and way of life engulfed under water to feed a distant city unaware of were the water comes from.
I have walked around the 12 miles lake shore line, ran around it, cycled it, driven round it, canoed in the lake, found hidden capel which avoided being drowned as its sits 6 feet from the shore line, in winter water laps into the doorway.
above-here is one of the feeders you can see its really busy and you can see the birds sit on the nearby branches which was were a captured most of the photography
