Great MJR 2011-02-15 16:02

I do like it ! Like your other pictures, this brings back many happy memories, though in truth in all the times I have been up and down here, I don't ever recall such sunshine ! Not that I want to put off other readers from visiting ! My only ascent in the sun ( and snow as it happens ) was up the Watkin's Path ! Are the screes still there twixt the upper path and Glaslyn ?
This is a great picture showing Snowdon off to great advantage, with some very accurate colouring to the hillsides and the lake. The Big Blue bits I can't comment on, never seen them before !!
all the best,
Martin

Default To MJR: Lucky in the sun

Hi Martin,

I must say I had a great day with the weather on this occasion, and the light was really excellent for taking photographs. I've never walked up the Watkins path but it is known to be the hardest ascent, and in the snow it must have been very difficult!

Actually this picture was taken on my first visit to Snowdon but not my first ascent, I walked up and down it the day before in the rain and mist and couldn't see a thing so perhaps this was my reward the next day, and I decided to do it again and i'm so pleased that I did. I walked the Pyg track to the summit and the miner's track coming back down and by the side of Llyn Llydaw and Glaslyn.I have a couple of pictures from the top but really there is more mist than anything, a clear picture from the summit, now that would be a rare thing I think. Maybe next time...

Cheers
