Glyder Fach and Tryfan by Alex37 Glyder Fach and Tryfan by Alex37
"Run Alex" came the shout from Emma, just 500m away from Caseg Fraith. I was already on my way. The instant I saw the light on the hills behind I started sprinting uphill with all the camping gear and food for 2 days still on my back! I always find an extra burst of energy when time is of the essence and this was certainly one of those times. Fortunately I was familiar with the location and as the weather went into 'spectacular mode' I was able to take a couple of shots.

It's easy to forget that I snapped a tripod leg in the process, but I don't regret it at all!

Ridiculously dramatic, but in a good way. The movement in this photograph is phenomenal. Makes me want to paint it. How do you feel about people using your photos as sources for artwork? I really would like to have a go at this one.
