Wales in September...

Post by Mictheslik »

Gradually getting through some shots from last week in the loop...my first and probably only trip to Wales this year. Not a bad week with Finnish hawks and swept tornados aplenty!

Monday 2nd. Half a day spent in a cloud, then a bit of disappointment as Marham 02 pulls out in front of us, dripping fluff!

Tuesday 3rd. Half a day spent in the pub, followed by a lovely afternoon up Cad West.

Wednesday 4th. Morning on the pulpit where I failed to spot most of the Finnish hawks (they're bloody well camouflaged!)

Great set Mick, especially like the blur and pin sharp Finn in 6.

Absolutely superb set.One of the best setsI've seen from Wales in a long while.Would love to have a go at this,but the thought of climbing those hills puts me off.

So many excellent shots can't pick an outright winner. :worship: :clap:
