Nant y moch (literally, the pigs stream) is the stream where the homonymous reservoir takes its name from.
Situated about three miles north of the village of Ponterwyd, Wales, the Nant-y-moch Reservoir is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
What I found interesting about this place is that when the valley was flooded in 1964, painstaking work was done to relocate an ancient graveyard with artifacts dating back to the iron age.
This shot was taken at sunrise on a cold January morning. As usual with my landscape photography, I limit the use of Photoshop to the very least possible, usually to just levels control and sharpness.

Beautiful effect on the running water with the shutter speed. Wonderful serene and tranquil atmosphere captured. I like it a lot. I have done a WS to increase the shadow highlights so that one can enjoy the beauty of the stream and the texture of these glazing rocks to the full extent. I hope you like it.
