Visiting Wales

Sage green and violet grown in this landscape. My brother lived in Abergavenny. The A465 road runs from Abergavenny to the Neath. The section westwards from Abergavenny is more commonly known as the Heads of the Valleys Road because it joins together the northern heads of the South Wales Valleys. Here the lunar-like landscape is dotted with sheep; scratch the surface to find black dust and rock. Sheep once had their tails docked but longer tails allow them to dispell flies … as nature intended.

Tumpa in Welsh is a waterfall. Tumpa is also the high point in the Brecon Hills. Despite the gloomy weather, the clouds lifted to give a view across the hill.
