Llyntegid or in English, Lake Bala is the largest natural body of water in Wales and is about 4 miles long by a mile wide. The river Dee runs into it and through it. The town of Bala is at the northern end of the lake shore, where this photograph was taken outside of the Bala adventure water sports centre and tourist information. From here we are looking south.

Snowdonia National Park in North Wales is one of two national parks within a short drive of my home town that I would like to spend more time photographing. So far I have driven through it half a dozen times and earlier this year I walked up Snowdon (the highest mountain in Wales), but with an area of 838 square miles and dozens of other spectacular mountains and lakes I know that there are more landscapes that my camera is crying out to capture.
