"Winter comes to Wales"


Dyserth, GB
          

Taken today and after the terrible floods two days ago here in North Wales, the rain turned to snow on higher ground as a first real taste of winter.

Both Images taken in the Snowdonia National Park. The first looking towards Mount Snowdon from Capel Curig, the second of Llyn Ogwen(Llyn = Welsh for Lake). The furthest right of the 3 snow covered peaks is Snowdon which was used by Edmund Hillary in training for the 1953 ascent of Mount Everest. (Sorry about the history lesson)

Thanks for posting Richard (and for the history lesson ) As a New Zealander I should have known that !

I love the first image - colours are wonderful, and it makes me want to be there. My family is originally from Wales (on my mothers side), so who knows, I might make it there myself one day?

If I was to make a suggestion for the second shot (if I may) - I'd clone or crop out the mound on the extreme left hand side corner. My eye goes straight to it, rather than on those majestic mountains!

Beautiful images of a beautiful place.

Thanks for the comments and yes, of course you are correct. Job done

We have friends and relations who are ex pats from Wales and those who come here say it is a small area, beautifully formed.

Beautiful scenery. I'm in London until tomorrow. Fortunately the monsoon rains have cleared by now.

While the mound in #2 is a potential distraction because it is the element with the clearest detail, it adds depth to the scene. Perhaps a small mound like that isn't worth saving if the bottom of the photo is otherwise empty. In some cases I keep the foreground but blur and/or darken it slightly to emphasize some other features in the photo.

Regards, Antero

Thanks Antero.

For the first time in 50 years of photography I've joined a photographic society/club. I am always learning and your comment is helpful as I now enter the monthly competitions.

You'll be glad to leave London tomorrow as it's one of the busiest days of the year and the first December Saturday before Christmas.
