Looking across the lake from the Nature Reserve
The defunct Nuclear Power Station can be seen on the opposite shore.
“Don’t let one cloud obliterate the whole sky.”
In 1990 the power station was closed and decommissioning commenced. Very quickly the water temperatures returned to normal and seasonal natural insect life began to return. During the past few years, there has been a noticeable increase in insect life in the lake.
Llyn Trawsfynydd [Trawsfynydd Lake] is set in beautiful natural surroundings in the heart of Snowdonia. The lake has a surface area of approximately 1,200 acres and extends for a total length of an estimated 5 miles.
The oak woodlands around Trawsfynydd support a huge variety of wildlife, including mosses, liverworts and lichens and a variety of mammals such as the lesser horseshoe bat. For the bird lover there is an abundance of varied water fowl living on the shores and islands of the lake, with occasional visits by ospreys.

Thank you very much and apologies for the delay in replying. Have a lovely day.
Great post. One can almost feel the coolness in the air and light.
Thank you, Brian. Will catch up on your posts soon.
“Be seeing you” as number 6 would say.
I didn’t know any of this, so, it was interesting. Impressive pictures, as always. I’ve never seen a lamb that close.
Thank you, Inese 🙂💛

Indeed.. and yes, time for those of us to speak our truth, to those who have ears to listen.. 🙂 Enjoy your evening.. Much love
Your reply is so fitting with my life at the moment. When I was meditating last week I was told it is time to take out my message to those who are hungering.
I have begun this task with a series of posts I intend to continue that may not always sit well, but we have to be true to ourselves and what Spirit guides us to speak.. ❤
Looking forward to reading them xx

Wow, I don’t think I have ever seen a cuter lamb, absolutely loved every single photo, there’s so much beauty surrounding us everywhere we go and look, thanks for sharing and have a lovely Sunday xx
You’re so kind. Thank you for your lovely message.
Lizzie…. another lovely gem captured by your beautiful photos. Although we have spent many years visiting Wales, there is so much that we still have yet to see 🙂 Lynne
Thank you, Lynne. There are lots of places in North Wales that I haven’t visited yet. I was never really interested until I bought my first camera. All of a sudden the world looked very different through a lens, so much beauty everywhere I look. I believe now that what you focus on grows.
Yes it’s amazing how much more you see through your camera 🙂
