Spring in Cwmorthin – Walking With Your Camera – A Guided Photo Walk with Helen Iles
Grab your camera, pull on your walking boots, we’re off on a photographic adventure deep in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales. Photography and a nature ramble – What could be better for those who love nothing more than being outside with their cameras? On this Cwmorthin – Walking With Your Camera – A Guided Photo Walk with Helen Iles we will be walking from Tanygrisiau up to Cwmorthin, which is where you will find the abandoned slate mines of Rhosydd Quarry. This is a beautiful walk for a photographer, the scenery is nothing short of stunning and the abandoned quarry ruins and houses are hauntingly striking. From a distance, the mountains are breath-taking in their quiet beauty, but dig a little deeper and there is a treasure trove of secrets for you and your camera. A glimpse of a noisy and destructive industrial era long left behind and an eerie peek into the hard life of a quarry miner in the mid nineteenth century. From landscape, to macro, from capturing the movement of waterfalls to creating abstract images – this day out, walking with your camera will not disappoint.
