When The Sun Shines #photography

The past weekend, summer briefly kicked spring into touch and blessed us with some warm, sunny days.

These photographs were all taken over the weekend using my iPhone 6.

Castle Meadows in Abergavenny

This is Castle Meadows in Abergavenny, South Wales. The mountain we are looking towards is called The Little Skirrid.

The Bridge Between Abergavenny and Llanfoist

This is the bridge between Abergavenny and Llanfoist which crosses the river Usk. It was formerly known as Tudor Bridge because it has been recorded as being built by Jasper Tudor, Duke of Bedford and Baron Abergavenny in the reign of Henry VI (1422-1461). Yes, that makes the bridge nearly 600 years old! However, although built during the medieval times, the bridge has since had substantial alterations as the population grew and forms of transport changed. It was widened in the early 19th century in association with the tramroad and, more recently, the parapets have been rebuilt. Today, it is open to both traffic and pedestrians.

Paraglider in the sky

As I looked up into the sky, something caught my eye. I rather him than me.

Entrance to the Brecon Beacons to Newport Canal in Gilwern

I moved on to the Brecon Beacons to Newport canal. This was one of many entrances to the canal.

Bridge over the Brecon Beacons to Newport canal

And here’s one of an original 19th-century bridge over the canal. You can still walk across it, but the left-hand side is now blocked off as it leads to some private land where there were lots of spring lambs bouncing about.

View over the Brecon Beacons

Just to my right, was a stunning view over the Brecon Beacons. Read more about the Brecon Beacons by clicking here.

And I found the perfect place to sit for a while and take in the view of the Brecon Beacons.

I hope you enjoyed this short tour of some of the beautiful scenery in South Wales.
