A few random photos of Wales

posted in: Sheep, Travel, Wool | 1

Just so I don’t get too far behind too fast. I’ve been in Wales. I leave tomorrow for the north of England. I'm still tweaking the photo export settings in Lightroom (new to me) to create decent images at small sizes.

It can be rainy in Wales.

More detailed content about previous sites and sights, currently in draft form, may appear in the near future. Sooner if I don’t spend tomorrow’s 7-plus-hour train ride just gazing out the windows and wondering about how to pronounce all those Ws and LLs. . . .

Edited to add: There's a reason that Wales is so gloriously green and has such an abundance of wildflowers.

It's time to go catch a train in the rain.
