The Shot I’ve Been After!

With the forecast of imminent snow, I decided to have another go at the sunset shot I wanted of the Pen y Fan Massif – I didn’t want a winter scene with snow… With -4 degrees C forecast at 800m, I knew it was going to be cold. On the way I had to go through a few streams – the backs of my trousers froze solid by the time I got back to the ……

Sunset on Cribyn

On the 31st of July 2007, I drove to Lower Neuadd Reservoir and walked up to Cribyn for sunset. Occasionally, I tend to build up a bit of a back log of photos to process. For some reason, this trip was one of those that ended up in the back log. I’d processed a couple, but that was as far as I got until now. I suspect these really should have been with the Photolibrary ……
