The picture was taken near betws-y-coed, Snowdonia. In the forests to the east of the village there is a small village of maye 10-12 houses. Up to the late 1920's this village had a small population, mostly because of local slate quarrying. then a bridge crossing a river was destroyed in a storm (I think) and not rebuilt. Links to the outside world became poor, and in effect the village was deserted in 1929. Seems surprising that even in living memory such a thin could happen. The village is now accessible by car due to Forestry commission tracks, and at least one house has been renovated & reoccupied. This wasn't taken with the E500, it was taken with a Olympus FE100 4MP compact.
