I would have like to shoot this image closer to sunset to get slightly deeper colours, but the hill behind meant I wouldnt have any sunshine on my foreground. Newvertheless, the clear blue sky, amazing clarity in the air and the cloud hovering above Snowdon come together nicely.
After taking this shot I started my trip up Snowdon, already feeling tired from a general lack of fitness. I camped just 200m from the summit and was lucky to find somewhere to pitch my tent. I had a bad nights sleep when the wind changed direction and started buffetting my tent. I awoke to total cloud cover. Although I still made the journey to the top the trip was a bit disappointing and I am certainly feeling tired today!
