Last week, I spent a few hours in very hostile conditions on the Carmarthen Fan – see this blog post. After I came down from the summit of Fan Brycheiniog, I spent 1.5 hours by the lake working on various compositions. By midnight, I was getting rather tired so decided that it was time to walk back to the car. There was snow on the shore of the lake, although the lake wasn’t frozen. Every photo I took, I was sat on the ground in the snow because I had the tripod low to the ground to include as much of the sky as possible – fortunately, my waterproof leggings in addition to my merino wool thermals and my fleece lined trousers kept me very warm. This is the last photo I took before leaving and, coincidentally, the photo I had had in mind when I originally planned the trip.
Back at home, I spent some time working out what the constellations were and was pleasantly surprised at which ones I had captured.
