This month’s selection is from Wales and was captured 9 years ago on my first Canon digital camera. Although just outside the Snowdonia NationalPark Traeth Mawr (Welsh for “big sands”) is a low-lying tract of land enclosed by embankments near #Porthmadog. It was formerly the tidal estuary of the Afon Glaslyn, and many travellers sank in its quicksands trying to cross it. Much of it is between high mountains. Pont Aberglaslyn is at its upper end. The view is from The Cob a man-made causeway built across the Afon Glaslyn by William Alexander Madocks and opened in 1811. The mile-long causeway carries the road, together with the Lôn Las Cymru cycleway and the Ffestiniog Railway. The Cob celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2011.
