There was a brief respite in the gloom of the summer yesterday. The sun shone and so we took advantage and fled to the west. This time it was photographs for the volume 50 Gems of Mid Wales which will be published in 2018. We had a good day, beginning in the wild hills above Llyn Brianne. We went to see the chapel at Soar y Mynydd, reputedly the most remote in Wales. Tregaron next, then Llandewi Brefi and Llangeitho. Then to Lampeter for a picture of the university buildings and the Derry Ormond Tower at Bettws Bledrws. We ended up in the beautiful Cae Hir Gardens, the perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day before rushing back home.
