Spotlight on Dinas Emrys
Patience it is said is a virtue, and in landscape photography it can be much needed. Here, patches of light sped across the land with the wind, teasing me by skimming the fringes of Dinas Emrys without really catching it. Finally I was rewarded.
Sunshine and Showers Cwm Pennant
Maybe I was too early, but the display of bluebells in Cwm Pennant was a little disappointing. However, my favourite weather conditions made up for it.
Strong winds, the odd patch of light and a brooding sky. Lovely.
I am fortunate to see many beautiful things in my work, sometimes they are special and as the mists rolled in and out over Llyn Llydaw, I will never forget the scene which unfolded, albeit very briefly, before me. I've seen brocken spectres often, but none with so many additional rings of colour, and none with Snowdon above the mists to finish the scene. After an initial grab shot, which showed more, but without Snowdon, I still managed to capture something of that fleeting moment.
Both Sides Now
Mist hangs over Llyn Llydaw on both sides of the causeway, whilst the early morning sun colours the Horns and the flanks of Crib Goch. The calm turquiose waters completing the scene.
After meeting up with friend and fellow photographer Adam Burton at Pen-y-Pass in thick fog, we were pleased to see the summit of Snowdon peer above the mists as we neared Llyn Llydaw. The calm waters and sunrise completed the scene.
The light of sunrise catches the Horns and the top of floating mists, beautifully reflected in Llyn Llydaw.
Frost and mist combine to restrict the view and concentrate the eye on smaller attractions.
Coloured by Sunset
On this visit to my favourite ruined cottage, (so far), I was almost outdone by the snowdrifts which i had to walk through and climb over to get here. Arriving just in time, I was rewarded with a spectacular show of strength by the setting sun.
A touch of Warmth
The trees and hedges seemed to hold on to the warmth of the early morning sun glowing against the cold of the snow in this view of Monod and Manod Bach.
