Snowdon trip pt 2 , Tryfan & the Glyders

After getting back to car after the climb up to  Glaslyn on Snowdon, i had a couple of hours daylight to go and have a look at the Ogwen valley waterfalls , the area opposite Tryfan has the best views down the valley :)
By the time i got to Ogwen  the lovely blue sky had all disappeared, being replaced by thick cloud !   Bummer!        but at least it gives a more dramatic feel to the images :)      the snow was not as deep as over in the Snowdon area but was down to ground level.. this walk up the Afon Lugwy is always tricky as there are no real paths , you just have to make your own way across the extremely wet rocky ground following the waterfalls.  luckily this time another person had recently walked up so i could follow in the footsteps in the snow!  haha.

  Here is the first image, as you can see quite dark already !  Tryfan on the left with the "Glyders" in centre  and "Devils Kitchen" in the right hand corner!

All these 6 images where taken over a half hour period , and only about 200 meters apart. Very similar, Yes! but just enough to give slightly different compositions. Ill let you make your own mind up which composition works best!
 the light was changing fast and in fact i only had half an hour before the light had gone!

                                              this one taken about 50 meters from above image!

                                                This is my fav composition of the 6 images :)

 I suddenly  noticed the sky was changing a nice pinky colour!!!
i only managed to shot 2 frames , before it was gone !

a nice reddish tinge to Lyn Ogwen :)   Weird!

That was the end of an awsome day in the mountains!  loved every minute :)

all images shot with canon 5d2, 17-40L & 70-300IS F5.6

  1. Very good Phil, the series 200m apart document very well the place, esp interesting are the frames with the pink, winter, sky.
