Update: our full review of the Pen E-P5 is now up!
The Dysynni Valley is sandwiched between the seaside town of Tywyn where my parents live, and a small chain of rugged heather-covered hills characteristic of the Mid-Welsh landscape. Cutting through the valley is the Dysynni river, a peaceful place where fishing, canoeing and kayaking are popular pass-times, and hiking paths are plentiful. Turn right along the river and you reach the open sea. Turn left and you end up at Ynys Maengwyn (unus mine-gwin), the ruins of an old family estate that has been engulfed by forest and brambles.
Today, I decided to take the Ynys Maengwyn route and photograph the stunning countryside along the way with the Olympus Pen E-P5. The two lenses I used were the M.Zuiko 12mm wide angle for landscapes, and the 14-42mm kit lens for insect and flower photography. (As a macro photography lover, I must get my hands on a macro lens soon or I’ll go off the deep end! Anybody want to gift me one? ;))
I hope you enjoy this series from what I consider one of the most beautiful countries in the world!
