Frontier Picnic
Photograph by Vincent J. Musi

Three generations of an English family enjoy a late summer reunion in the Brecon Beacons National Park. “We’re carrying on a tradition,” says Helen Kibblewhite (standing in the foreground). “My mother’s family used to go to Wales as well. It’s refreshing to get out where the land is less affected by human activity.” From Hay Bluff, where they have assembled, they look out over sweeping pastures and forests in Wales. In the opposite direction, beyond the border with England, the land has been divided into tidy plots of farmland. “The border in this area is very clear. The cultural division is very close to the geographic one,” says Helen.
