Sgwd Clun-gwyn

I've been long overdue a day out with my camera, so I decided to head back to my homeland and discover a bit of magic located in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park.
Found near Ystradfellte (Welsh: valley floor of the Mellte) which is a small village in southern Powys, Wales, in the Fforest Fawr area of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Sgwd Clun-gwyn is one of four main waterfalls and all are absolutely breathtaking.
The main path to the waterfall leads to the top of the waterfall, so rather than leave with a regular tourist shot, I scrambled down a steep rocky incline to get to the base of the falls and boy it was worth it.
To start the light was flat and dull, but as I set up my position the sun decided to play nice and came out for 10 minutes. The resulting light was superb as sunlight punched through the trees, highlighting the foliage on the rock face.
