Glyder Fawr, Snowdonia

“Beyond Snowdon”

For a while, I have wanted to combine my photography with hiking. I want to build my fitness to explore familiar areas and get unique shots. This shot was from the first such trip of 2022. In February, while there was still snow on the peaks, I hiked the Glyderau range starting in Ogwen. I had intended this circular walk to get me back to the car by lunchtime and I set off before sunrise, but once I got to the peak here at Glyder Fawr, I realised that I had to stick around for good light. The winds were strong and bitingly cold, but I found shelter and waited on this composition for 4 hours until sunset. I think the results are worth it. Climbing down an unfamiliar scramble at night wasn’t my favourite way to end the day, but dinner back at camp that night never tasted so good!
