A place to call home by Alex37 A place to call home by Alex37
Home for the night at 800m, not far below Snowdon's summit, which was the morning's task. Our walk up to this point was shrouded in mist and, in sub zero temperatures, it coated the grasses in a fine white ice. We actually didnt bring enough water with us, so we cooked our dinner in water from the pool!

I've only ever climbed Snowdon in the spring/summer. Would love to be up there in this sort of weather - except I'd get cold, and would never manage to photograph it half as well as you do, so perhaps I'm better off staying at home and looking at your fabulous pictures instead.

Thanks thats very kind, I actually quite like hiking in the cold though, as long as it's dry it can be very pleasant, you just need a down jacket for when you stop!

Well exactly. It's like they say; there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes. :)

Oh goodness that's gorgeous. It looks so cold there. I wonder what the ice coated grass looks like up close? (That's just me and my love of Macro)

I have no doubt you would have had a field day with macros. The snow structure on the grasses looked very pretty indeed.

I would have a field day. I love macro, I also love landscape photography but I stink at it compared to your talent.

Hey Alex, this shot is really well done! Guess those temperatures couldn't be better. Thick snow might have destroyed this image!

The train runs on the opposite side of the mountain and not in winter, I WISH it didnt exist but if it keep people away from the other peaks then fine :P
