#SundayStills ~ Mountains and Valleys #Nature #Landscape #Photography

I’m delighted to be hosting Sunday Stills for Terry Webster Schrandt during August while she takes a blogging break.

This week’s theme is mountains and valleys. At the moment we’re living near Snowdonia National Park. It’s very scenic and is the largest national park in Wales. It also has the highest mountain in England and Wales and has many pretty villages and lakes.

One of the many walks.

The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct takes the Llangollen canal over the river Dee valley. You can walk across (if you don’t mind heights.) Designed and built by Thomas Telford and William Jessop, it was completed in 1805 and took 10 years to design, build and test. It’s now a World Heritage Site. The aquaduct is 39 metres high and 3.6 metres wide.

  1. I wouldn’t want to be that isolated either, Cathy. For starters, I wonder what the broadband connection is like in that house?
    Beautiful views, which I’d be thrilled seeing every day. The aqueduct looks impressive, but I wouldn’t want to look over the side of it.
    I’ll be linking back again on my Wordless Wednesday post.
    Have a lovely week.

    1. I can see there being no broadband at all, Hugh and that wouldn’t do 😉 I have to admit I couldn’t walk across the aquaduct but it is really impressive. Look forward to your post. Hope you have a lovely week too.

      1. I have had the chance to cross the aqueduct with friends a few times, but have bottled out on each occasion! I seem to remember at one time there was a warning sign as you approach on the Canal which reads something along the lines of, you might get an unexpected urge to jump. Well that put me right off. I think the warning signs now only say children must hold parents hands, though I have not been for a number of years.

  3. Hi Cathy, gorgeous images of the area! I’m so happy to see our SS regulars contributing! This has been a whirlwind week with hubby’s unexpected eye surgery, two real estate closings and endless packing. I’m so grateful for my blog break. Keep up the good work and have a great week!
