Mawddach Patterns

Mawddach Estuary, Snowdonia

At low tide many trails of water can be seen in the Mawddach Estuary. The sweeping shapes of the flowing water are very pleasing to take in. I photographed this view of the estuary before dawn on a frosty morning. Mist was lingering in inland valleys, helping to separate the undulating lines of the mountains in the distance.
