The old railway bridge over the Mawddach River at Barmouth, Gwynedd, Wales
And mazy sands all water-wattled
Waylay her at ebb, past Penmaen Pool.

Beautifully done monochrome, Tish!
Thank you, Pete. Praise indeed 🙂
An impressive structure. Have you walked across it?
No. When we had the chance it was blowing a gale. A good reason to return to the Mawddach.
I especially like the header photo version, where the horizontal lines get full play.
Lovely image and even lovelier quote! Mazy sands / water-wattled. Fabulous.
GMH did have a way of nailing things 🙂
That is one beautifully framed photo. Almost makes me feel as if I’m there.
Thank you for that very lovely comment, Alison.
I’ve never been to Barmouth so this has been a lovely visit xx
There’s a fantastic walk (several miles) from Dolgellau along the Mawddach on the old railway line to the coast, then over the bridge to Barmouth.
Temptress 🙂 🙂
Great bit of the past, Tish…
Nice on Tish, it looks three dimensional.
This is a gorgeous capture, Tish 🙂 I really love it A LOT!
Many thanks, Paula 🙂
Love it Tish 🙂
