Venue information

If you are shooting sunrise at the lake you should head towards the west side, so that you can get an east-facing viewpoint across the lake. There is a handy parking area at a picnic site about a mile from the dam on this side of the lake, or you can drive or walk further along the lake. For sunset shots try the picnic area around 2 miles north of the dam on the east side of the lake. From both parking areas it's a short walk to the shore of the lake, but both have very good access.

Venue Verdict: Lake Vyrnwy is a beautiful, tranquil location with plenty of photogenic spots.

    The Hotel over looking the lake is lovely, and the balcony provides the perfect spot for beautifull sunset photographs!
