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.

Boscastle can be a challenge to shoot. It's not your typical beach, rocks, sunset picture location. However, the sunset from the cliffs just past the harbour can be magical. Theres a small quay just in from the cove which could make some interesting shots with the boats.

Pak in the housing estate and take the footpath. Walk West / North West and you will see a big cliff face on the left. There is an obvious grass path up there. Very steep. I imagine very slippery in the wet!

This location offers some of the most dramatic mountainous scenery in the UK. A number of streams flow into Llyn Idwal from around Cwm Idwal. Lots of rapids and waterfalls so great for long exposure shots, especially after a lot of rain in the river.

Wrap up warm! Especially if you are going at night. 

There are a few interesting looking huts/bunkers that are accessible I think .

Check tides before you go! (Liverpool bay should be ok, just add ten minutes on to the times) Try to time it so you get there 3 hours either side of high water (on about an 8 meter tide) as they do cover over. The walk down is slippery, so wear some good boots/wellies.
