Mynydd Llangorse from Mynydd Troed Sunset

I find that there’s always a lot of procrastination that goes with photography. Shall I go out this evening? Shall I stay in with the family? What if the light is really good? What if it’s just cloudy? What if the forecast is wrong? (It normally is!) What if it’s a wasted trip? What if tonight is the night I take my best photo ever? I went through most of those questions and more on Wednesday evening but I did eventually decide to go out, and I’m pleased I did. It was an 80 mile round trip to Mynydd Troed, but the drive is a nice one over the mountain pass at Crai and onto Brecon and beyond. I walked up Mynydd Troed, somewhere I hadn’t been before, and found a likely spot for a panorama.

For once, the cloud forecast was roughly right and just before the cloud bank obscured the sun, 30 minutes before sunset, I took this ‘normal’ photo:

All in all, a successful evening even if I do say so myself :-)
