Wales 2007 photos: third batch

Bridge in nature reserve

Bridge in the nature reserve we visited on the second day. Because of the low altitude and protected status, there was far more vegetation there than elsewhere in Snowdonia.

View uphill to the ‘barn’ in which we stayed. Nearby was a small power plant, with turbines operated by water pressure. A long pipeline – resembling those for natural gas – ran down to it from a lake somewhere above us.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Many things described as barns are so because they are barn conversions – while sometimes the label is added for a rustic feel, looking at the picture it may well be an honest description.

    They’re streams (or brooks) dammit, not creeks (in the UK anyway)!

    Still loving the Welsh landscape photos.

  2. Antonia,

    You cannot tell from this photo, but the cabin was definitely built for its present purpose. There is even a special room near the side door in which to dry soggy gear.

    What’s the problem with the term ‘creek?’ I have done a great deal of enjoyable canoeing in them.

    Glad to hear you like the photos.

  3. gorgeous…you dont know how jealous I am Milan. I really need to bond with mother nature again and get off the beaten path. It has been way too long!
