A quick trip to Wales

I went on a flying visit to Wales on Business and therefor I didn't really have time to stop and take many photos as I would normally do, I only caught whatever I did 'en-route'

I absolutely love Wales, it is such a pretty place and with every corner that you turn, there is yet more beautiful scenery waiting for you. On this occasion I went to the Rondda Valley, which was one of the more deprived areas of Wales after the Coal mines closed, but thirty years on, it has recovered and the area does not feel destitute any more. It isn't exactly affluent, but it is clean and tidy, the houses are all well maintained and the crime levels have dropped from the high levels of the eighties.

One amazing characteristic of Wales, is of course the Sheep, they are not only fearless, they are actually quite boisterous, they are more than comfortable to graze on the roadside and if you approach them, they actually stare you out!

I took a little video as I was crossing the Severn Bridge and when I stopped along the side of the road near Treorchy, I was approached by a cheeky Sheep, who had a few of my chips. I hope to visit again soon, but next time, I am hoping that I have more time to capture the stunning images that are possible in this beautiful place.
