Wales is known around the world for its spectacular natural beauty.

And thanks to a worker from Welsh Water, some of the country's most striking views have been captured.

Dan has the challenging task of looking after some of the 91 reservoirs and dams owned by Welsh Water - many of which date back to Victorian times. His work is vital to ensuring the drinking water network is maintained and can supply safe and reliable water all year round.

The account gives snapshots of the breathtaking views he encounters in his daily work out in some of Wales’ most picturesque locations including the Brecon Beacons, Ystradfellte, Ponsticill near Merthyr Tydfil and Elan Valley.

Dan, who lives in Cwmbran, originally joined Welsh Water six years ago as a season ranger at Llandegfedd Reservoir near Pontypool, before joining the Dam Safety team a year later.
