I was very good on New Years Eve and went to bed at 9pm as I wanted to go up to the Pen y Fan area for sunrise. Everything went as planned and I started walking up the Storey Arms path at 6am. With the help of crampons, I got to the ridge below Corn Du in time for sunrise. It was pretty cold though and frost formed on me as I walked. Rather surprisingly, it was pretty busy by sunrise with several groups of people on the summit! I’ve been wanting to get a panorama shot from the ridge for ages and finally got around to it, but it needs a lot of processing as it’s around 14 images. In the meantime, here is a photo of sunrise on the 1st January 2010!
I had planned to go for another sunrise this morning, but we had a couple of inches of snow in the evening so instead the three of us went for a walk around Pontardawe – photos will follow as I took loads!
