Windblown by Alex37 Windblown by Alex37
It was bitterly cold up on Glyder Fach for sunset and it only got colder as the sun went down. Strong gusts of wind occasionally whipped up loose lying snow which caught the sun as it drifted off the edge. This was another attempt to do something different at Castell y Gwynt (on the left), giving up classic shots which I had shot before in favour of a challenge! Obviously the foreground helped big time!

I'll have to get my walking friends to properly kit themselves out ready for the next snow :) didn't want to take them up there without the right kit, asking for trouble.
