Storm Arwen has created a 'masterpiece' among its trail of devastation - by blasting tonnes of grass so hard the blades wove themselves so perfectly onto a fence that passers-by thought it was handmade.  

Landscape photographer Colin Richards braved the weather on November 28 to walk up Mynydd Pwll-yr-Iwrch, south Wales, when he came across an 'unbelievable' sight stretching across 130 metres of fencing.

Incredible photos taken by the father-of-one on the hill summit show the brown moor grass completely entwined in the barbed wire structure.

Now branded the 'best fence ever', Mr Richards said that the strong northerly winds had uprooted a sea of molinia, a type of moor grass.

Dubbed as the 'waffle fence' by admirers online, Mr Richards, of Maesteg, Bridgend County Borough in south Wales, said: 'It looks man-made but if you had a look at that you'd be up there for years.

'It's 130 metres long, it goes on and on and on.

'I thought the pictures were so unusual and I shared them that evening

'Everyone seems to like them and some people are not convinced that it's natural.

'With the northerly winds coming off all the other hills it picked up tonnes of grass and the only thing in its way was this fence.

'When I nipped over this gate and looked up the line of the fence and saw what a lot of people are calling 'waffles' or 'the waffle fence'.

'It just looks like someone has
