A Walk In The Woods…

A7305654After weeks of lockdown, with the whole of Wales out of bounds, things have now progressed to the point where a trip to one of my favourite woodland walks was possible. This is Plas Power Woods, an area of ancient woodland just outside Wrexham. With ample parking, well marked paths, and a charming waterfall at the site of an old mill, it’s a great spot for an afternoon out.

Sadly there were rather more people around than I expected, so it didn’t offer the tranquility I had experienced on previous visits. I managed a few phone photos, but my plan to photograph the waterfall was largely frustrated by a group ‘tombstoning’ from the upper level soon after I arrived. I hung around for best part of an hour and got just a few photos, but it was clear they were there to stay, so I moved on in the end.

Nevertheless, it was good to get out in the fresh air on the first sunny day this July. And the first day for a long time that I’ve felt like going out specifically to take photographs. Here are a few more from the day.
