“Where I like to take photos in the Brecon Beacons.” By fromWill Lewis a Brecon Beacons Photographer from Photography Tuition.
“One of my favourite places for taking photographs in the Brecon Beacons is Llangorse Lake. Every time I go there it’s different – the light changes the birds behave differently and there’s always something new to photograph.
The best place for photography is the area by the car park on the north west side of the lake. There are plenty of ducks and swans in this area and they’re very easy to approach for photography – I love getting close ups of their feathers and colourful wing patches.
Also in this part of the lake is the Crannog Centre – a recreation of the type of thatched house that would have been on the crannog or man made island in the lake. The Crannog Centre is beautifully positioned over the lake amongst a reed bed – very photogenic.
East of Llangorse village is a little lane leading up to Cockit Hill which sits between the much bigger Mynydd Troed and Mynydd Llangorse hills. Map reference 161283. From here you get great views of Llangorse Lake with Pen y Fan, the highest point of the Brecon Beacons behind.”
