This Autumn in mid Wales

It’s well into December and it’s still warm and feels like autumn.


It’s not been the best autumn for colours but I managed to get a few shots of leaves on the Brecon to Abergavenny Canal. Above: a branch had caused a natural dam, trapping the leaves.


Leaves on the canal, swirling around an apple. Converted to black and white.


Nikon D600 with 50mm f1.8G. ISO 1600, 1/2000 second, f2.8. November is the peak time in mid Wales for salmon to head upstream to spawn. They tend to be best to watch after a cold spell which is followed by heavy rain. This year it never happened. We had a cold spell but no significant rain. I saw a few salmon jumping up the waterfalls but not many. Instead of travelling high upstream they spawned in the lower reaches of the rivers this year Рso the experts tell me.

I came across this once wonderful, but now sadly neglected, Landrover Safari on a remote farm. I wonder what the story is behind it?
