A beautiful sweeping landscape. Nicely composed, Peter.

J'aime ce paysage Peter, il me fait penser à  l'Ecosse où je suis allée souvent à  une époque. Bisous à  vous deux.
....peter:): La partie nord du pays de Galles est très similaire à la campagne en Ecosse Marie... je suis sûr qu'il ramène de bons souvenirs!
Bisous de nous deux....peter/pierresmile
looks like a wild wild west shot instead of england... just beautiful
....peter:): it is quite beautiful Elaine!!... there are stone fences separating the fields in the valley... unlike the wide open spaces of the wild west....petersmile

I knew we are in Wales again - a wonderful photo with all the clouds! I love this area and visited Snowdonia, too, last summer.
....peter:): Wales is a very beautiful county Philine and i knew that you were traveling there last year... the Ogwen Valley in the Snowdonia park was my favorite part of our journey....petersmile
We're definitely not in Holland, Peter! :
....peter:): Definitely not Holland Ginnie... the mountain ranges through the Ogwen Valley were magnificent....petersmile

I love landscapes like this, so wide and I assume that the little white spots are sheep.
Well done from a back seat smile
....peter:): The sheep in the fields show us just how vast this beautiful valley is Astrid... thank you....petersmile

Now this is beautiful and almost perfect time for St. David's Day yesterday.I'll be up that in early October for our annual Boys' Bike Weekend.
....peter:): i could have posted it on St. David's Day Alan but i didn't know that Saint David was the patron saint of Wales....petersmile

Canadian EH!

Our green and pleasant land.
....peter:): It is a very beautiful valley Mike... i had three seconds to capture this shot through the window as we came around the bend when Frank was driving us up to Holyhead...petersmile
Looks like the perfect day. I think you were photobombed - bottom right.
....peter:): Thanks Mary... the photobombed part bottom right is the top of the stone wall that runs along the A5 Road through Wales...
we were travelling at about 90 kl/h as we came around the curve into the valley... i left the wall in to show how little room there was between it and the car that Frank was driving....petersmile

What a view! The grazing fields for sheep is interesting in a lilliputian way.
....peter:): it's nice to see you back Louis... the dots of sheep make a very good scale to the size of the valley....petersmile

I was frustrated that I couldn't take any shots of the wonderful landscapes on that drive ,Peter, nice to be reminded of it.

This image is just as calming Peter...

Glad to see that you got to enjoy the scenic delights of the A5 Peter, a road Maureen and I have travelled many times, parts of it are really beautiful, like this bit you picked out here.
