I have chosen a place called Pistyll Rhaeadr, which this time is not an actual human settlement (though it has some built environment), but it is an outstanding natural beauty in the Berwyn Mountains. In fact, it is one of the most stunning and Britain's tallest (240ft/80m) single-drop waterfall.

Merry Christmas!
