Waterfall, Moel yr Ogof
23/52 for the Flickr group 2019 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: W is for Water

Luckily we had a walk planned for yesterday up to Moel yr Ogof to see the disused copper mine and Owain Glyndŵr's cave. We passed this waterfall on the way up the valley.

I'll post more photos of the walk later.

That waterfall is gorgeous

Thank you. It was looking particularly good because we'd had quite a bit of rain over the past week and the lighting was perfect: sun on the foreground and shadow in the distance.

It was a very beautiful walk. The waterfall was looking particularly good because we've had a fair bit of rain recently and the light was good.

Our waterfalls are usually deepe in the forest, narrower, and more vertical. It would be very cool to see one out in the open like that.

We have different kinds of waterfall and they vary considerably in size. This is a medium sized one, but we have tall thin ones and wider but not so high ones. (There are actually different Welsh words for the different types.) They can be in forests or on open moorland.

The wide ones tend to be in forests because they are the ones you find in valleys and the trees tend to take over there. The high ones are usually on open mountains. It's all due to the varied geology.

Interesting! I guess we have several words in English too, including cataract and cascade, but I hadn't thought about it like that.
