Infinity Pool by Alex37 Infinity Pool by Alex37
Llyn Y Caseg Fraith is perched on the edge of a ridge with fantastic views to Glyder Fach and across to Tryfan. The pools in the area are fascinating; the inner walls drop vertically by two feet or so to a dark lifeless base. In the right light they appear almost black.

As the morning began it was clear that there was no prospect of a sunrise, but occasional gaps in the cloud gave hope. Long after sunrise there was a burst of light that lasted perhaps a minute and coincided with a slight lift in the cloud level. Tryfan and Glyder Fach were still in shadow and appear almost black in comparison to the sunlit grass on the edge of the pool. Lighting doesn't get better than this!

I will be returning to Llyn y Caseg Fraith sometime soon to see what else the location can provide.

Dark deep rich colors make this one gorgeous picture. Phenomenal view. Since I can't be there to see the sites for myself I truly appreciate artists like yourself to help bring the landscape to me. Thank you for sharing it.

What light! That's amazing. Beautiful. One of my favourite places in the whole world, but I'd love it even if I had no idea where it was.

They say if you spend a night between Adam & Eve, on Tryfan, you'll come down either mad or a Welsh Bard :D

Just do it when it's not too windy, then you'll get a night's sleep. They say
it's the sound of the wind, blowing between Adam & Eve, that can drive one mad :D
