day 15 was the final day of our holiday and we stopped at Aberdulais Falls which is just a few minutes off the M4.

it’s a fascinating place where a natural feature (waterfall) changed the landscape due to it’s effect on industry – in this case the working of tin

it’s also got one of the nicest views out a toilet window !

the waterfall is the main attraction of course so i took the opportunity to brace myself for some long exposure shots of flowing water

well worth a trip if you are whizzing down that bit of the M4
