At Dusk

The Frenni Fawr at dusk this evening. At the top of this hill there are a number of cairns and barrows. There are tales of encounters with y Tylwyth Teg - the 'Fair Family' or faery folk. It is also said to be the hill where, in the tales of the Mabinogion, the Roman emperor Magnus Maximus (Macsen Wledig) had his visionary dream of the Welsh princess Elen.

Thanks for dropping by my blog - Dreaming Stone. Glad to have found you...some wonderful photos, and amazing to see the last few weeks recorded in all their glory. Well, not so much the wind and rain of late, but the almost summer of a few weeks ago. You live in a beautiful and magical area of the country - lucky you!
