Craig Cwn Sere and Cribyn by Alex37 Craig Cwn Sere and Cribyn by Alex37
Craig Cwm Sere connects Pen y Fan and Cribyn (the central peak). Its a very popular route for walkers and from Pen Y fan the view of the ridge line is excellent.
The colours of these altocumulus just before sunrise were absolutely fantastic. I was jumping for joy when they started to glow and I knew I was in for something special. Around sunrise the light changes dramatically. With the sun below the horizon in this image the snow takes on the blue of the sky above. Colour contrast is something I constantly seek in my photography (I could never shoot Black and White!) and never is it better than under a sky like this.

hello good afternoon, I have let my ipiniao Thurs, no criticism, because I'm still an amateur, but since you already say that the picture is very good for me, I loved the colors, the perspective, the way you took the feeling, therefore chose for my favorites.

visit my gallery and comment and if you can help me give me some points in my donation, thank you </ i>
