Snowdonia Wales mountains have always been my favorite place for landscape photography especially in the Winter, with the first frosts and fog at dawn …
The route I choose is Snowdon Ranger Path , the path climbs gradually up to, and around the slopes of Moel Cynghorion to Bwlch Cwm Brwynog. It then climbs steeply over the shoulder above Clogwyn Du’r Arddu before merging with the Llanberis path, and then the Pyg and Miners’ tracks at Bwlch Glas, and then on to the summit.
I have reach the summit at 5.30am (a bit to early), it was really dark, cold and windy. I had to find the spot, where I could hide against the wind and wait for the sunrise.
From the top of Snowdon, at 7.10am I recognize the sky slowly changing color, night had nearly past as on the horizon you can see the first light of the rising sun.
Its means that its time to look around for a place from which I want to take pictures , There are many possibilities (panorama of Nantlle Ridge and Moel Hebog ,Snowdon and Crib Goch ,Llyn Llydaw visible down , Glyders etc..)
Wherever you look, you see beautiful mountain panoramas with the outpouring of morning mist through the mountains ,which sometimes can raise until the summit is covering all around .
Fortunately, with the strong wind, fog dissapears quickly and it`s time for me to be able to take pictures .
In the 2016 on the Snowdon summit I was already for the fourth time because of The Snowdonia mountains have so many possibilities to find amazing spot for beautiful landscape panoramas and unpredictable weather which can rapidly change here .
And in the near future Winter 2017 next trip to Snowdonia Wales to walk the High Carneddau from Ogwen Valley.
