Ideal for long exposure work and sunsets.

The spillway at Pontsticill Reservoir is well worth a visit but make sure you go when the water is actually draining. For this reason it's probably best to visit outside of the summer months and best to keep an eye on the weather forecast prior to going.

This is truly an awe-inspiring photography location. The observatory sits in the middle of Northumberland’s Kielder Forest, overlooking the spectacular Kielder reservoir - Northern Europe’s largest man-made lake.

A little known location, Loganlea Reservoir has a lot to offer. Changes greatly with the seasons, looks fantastic with snow on the hills. There are a couple of piers which make fantastic foreground subjects. The long exposure technique is really suited to this location!

A little-known location, Dunside reservoirs consists of two small reservoirs upper and lower dunside. The larger of the two has a NW facing control valve platform and an interesting break water of granite blocks cemented into the embankment.

I believe the area around this reservoir offers some of the best views of Pen-y-fan, the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons. Admittedly it is a bit of a hike from the nearest car park some 2 miles to the south but the walking is easy, most of it on tarmac roads.

The Elan Valley is, in my opinion, one of the most scenic and peaceful (if you can avoid the height of the tourist season) places in Wales.

The valley containing the reservoir holds a number of fantastic photo opportunities in all kinds of conditions. Sunrises are best due to the facing hilltops catching the early light.
