I took these pictures when I went to Lake Bala on Easter Holiday this year. The location is in Dyfi Valley. I lost words to describe the beauty of this place. The view is just amazing around there!

Here a picture of The Dyfi Valley.

Bala, Love at The First Sight

Image


My first time to visit Bala Lake was in summer 2009 with friends from the church for summer outing. My first impression was WOW and it still remains until now. My second time was summer last year and the third time was on Easter Sunday this year. I just can’t get enough. In Bala I fall in love at the first sight with Wales. Aha! I sounded so poetic, LOL.

Wales is largely mountainous and such a nice place to visit to. It offers you a beautiful, breathtaking, and spectacular scenery. That is the facts. What I love about Wales is its atmosphere and its nuance. It’s very relaxing. Some places still have old fashioned buildings and some houses still keep their old fashioned style as well. I’ve been to some places in Wales such as Llangolen, Holywell, Pantasaph, Rhyl and Prestatyn, Conwy, and of course, Bala.

Bala, Gwynedd in Welsh, is famous with its lake called Bala Lake or Llyn Tegid in Welsh. It’s a tourism place and located in Snowdonia National Park. In the summer there will be more and lots of people doing camping either any outdoor activities. In Bala they still have steam trains that operate alongside Bala Lake Railway.

Here some pictures of Bala that I took last year and last Easter Sunday.

My Photojournalism: Newfoundland Dog Event at Lake Bala

Last weekend or on Easter Sunday to be exact, I went to Lake Bala in North Wales for a day trip with a friend of mine. We arrived there at about 1 pm. Apparently there was Newfoundland Dog Event taking place when we got there.

The situation of Newfoundland Dog Event

The dogs are giant and it was my first time to see that kind of dogs.

Have a break

They were trained for lifesaving. The dog had to swim to his or her owner and the staff trainer who were waiting for in a lifeboat. When the dog reached the lifeboat then he or she would be given a rope that been tied to the boat, and with that rope the dog had to drag the lifeboat to the coast.

The dog started swimming to the lifeboat

"Keep going, buddy! Keep swimming!"

"Come on, buddy! You are nearly there!"

"Good boy/girl! Now take the rope!"

"OK, buddy! Now it's time to go back to the coast!"

Another ones were having a break or perhaps waiting for their turn

The two buddies: the owner and the dog

This dog refused to swim into the water. It took ages to persuade him/her.

Finally he/she started swimming after back and forth into the water.

As the dog swam by, the owner cheered him/her on.

"Yes, come on, buddy! You're nearly here!"

"Oh, noooo!" said the owner. The dog made a U-turn before reached the lifeboat and swam away.
