Tu Hwnt I'r Bont ('Beyond The Bridge'), a 400-year-old former courthouse and now a traditional North Wales tearoom, is a world famous tourist attraction that reaches its height of photographic charm in early autumn.
The grade II listed cottage nestles beside the 15th century Pont Fawr stone bridge on the banks of the River Conwy in the market town of Llanwrst on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. The building is covered in Virginia Creeper, a five-leaved ivy, which each autumn envelopes the stone cottage from roof to ground in a blanket of blazing colour. The leaves' rich colours are due to the minerals found in soil from the Conwy river bed.
My main photograph above was taken on Apple's iPhone 7 Plus, the slow shutter capture was achieved using the excellent ProCam app and a tripod.
The autumnal foliage is both beautiful and short lived, the leaves begin to turn red in mid-September and have completely changed colour by early October before they eventually fall soon after. You need to hurry if you want to capture this classic North Wales autumn scene this year.
If you do visit Tu Hwnt I'r Bont then make sure you sample the scones, always a delight, they are freshly baked to a secret recipe!
