Morning had just broken and I had stopped in one of the laybys on the A470 heading north from Merthyr Tydfil to Brecon in South Wales.  The sky was clear and the air wonderfully still.  I was on my way to climb Pen-y-Fan, the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons, but my breath had been taken away by the mirror reflection of the mountains and trees on the glass like reservoirs. I took out my Canon 1000D and tried to capture the beautiful views.

I have this particular photograph mounted and framed on the wall in my house. I have also sold a few framed pictures at fairs around South Wales and have recently turned this into a greetings card.  The image always gets a great reaction and I think it is the tranquillity that people like.

Since taking this set of photographs, I have been back to the reservoirs on many occasions, but the water has never been as still.  The complete set of images can be seen by clicking here.
