Severn Bridge into Wales

Highlights of a visit to southeast Wales through photographs

I visited Wales for the first time this fall. The scenic countryside began as soon as I crossed the Severn Bridge. I was in south-east Wales for under a week and only saw a fraction of it, but what I saw and experienced was delightful. It is easiest to share that experience through photos.

There is so much more of Wales I need not see, but my brief foray into Wales was a great introduction. An added bonus was the colours of the autum foliage.

    1. Thanks Jacquie. The fall was a great time to visit. Not only were the colours wonderful, we had nice sunny weather.

    1. Thanks Susan. There were so many more wonderful colours I didn’t get photos of, because we were driving or some other reason.
