Twilight at Mawddach Estuary, Wales by 

An 8 frame (2 sweeps of 4) HDR panorama of the Estuary at this lovely time of day – after the sun has gone down and that magical blue is in the sky. The mist is starting to roll in over the water as the temperature plummets after a glorious day in March.

The Mawwdach river rises near to Lake Bala and is joined by the Afon Wnion downstream from Dolgellau. The poet William Wordsworth called it “the sublime estuary” and reported that " it could “compare with the finest in Scotland”.

The estuary is a superb place to watch wading birds and gulls. A rail and footbridge runs from Morfa Mawddach Station to the resort of Barmouth.

Bontddu, set on the estuary hills which were the centre for the nineteenth century goldrush, experienced a brief boom at the time. Gold was discovered there in 1834 and prospectors flooded into the area. By the 1920’s the industry had all but disappeared. (

We searched hard for some Gold but alas to no avail!

    Another, fabulous shot from Wales. It’s becoming obvious that I was born in the wrong place All of your Wales captures are wonderful. Sally (I do spend quite a bit of time in the gold country of Ca. though)
