Checking the (Plug)holes

Spillways of the Ladybower Reservoir in Derbyshire locally known as “plugholes” ejecting a huge amount of excess water after heavy rains. This place is quite famous and has become a photographers’ paradise.There are many pictures of the “plugholes” on the net, but I wanted to photograph the plugholes myself.

Although I’ve been to Snowdonia many times before, I have never visited landscape around Blaenau Ffestiniog. The main goal of the trip was walking around Stwlan Dam and disused slate mines. This part of Wales is known worldwide for the slate and disused mines are pretty much everywhere.
