Trees Over Idwal by PastyGuy Trees Over Idwal by PastyGuy
Image

Climbing up the Glyderau for the second time I wanted to stop on the walk for a shot I had seen snapshots of before the trip. After a cloudy start and in very high winds the opportunity for a shot looked unlikely but with a lucky break in the clouds the light shone through and onto the Ogwan valley and the trees in the foreground.

Location

Twll Du, Snowdonia, Wales

Been here in the summer. Fell off a mountain somewhere round there too.
Great shot!

yeah, its level, I checked that before I posted it. What might lead you to beleive it isnt is the relative cloud positions, but thats because the 2 exposures were taken at different times and the clouds have moved so fail!

Yeah not too bad thanks mate.. though it has been slow and hard work owing to my indecision and the fact I've managed to get myself some allergic conjunctivitis in one eye, meaning it's all red and blurry until it heals.. not very useful when I'm trying to finalise my edits 'in best' reallY! Just one final edit to do.. I updated my LPOTY folder so it should now show the ones I'm actually going to enter... [link] thoughts welcome ;)

How are yours going, going to working up til the last minute too?
