I look at posting at least one blog per week, documenting various aspects of my photography journey.

Snowdonia National Park

Posted on


Booked a workshop with James Grant on Sunday 14th July. The workshop was at Snowdonia National Park and involved a meetup at a local cafe at 3:00pm. James went through various aspects of what should happen on the day. On arriving at the base little did i realise the effort that would be required for this day. I had spent the previous four weeks climbing various locations close to my home.
The day was hot, dry and sunny to start with. Llyn Idwal from Idwal Slabs copyWe walked for about an hour to our first location along a reasonal track. The view was stunning and managed to get this image from there. After having spent about 30 minuets here we took off for our next stage which wsa a steep sramble up towards The Devil's Kitchen. This was very steep and required a lot of concentration.

Eventually we managed to get to the summit and was able to get a great view. The time was approximately 6:00pm. The area was called Glyder Fawr.

Our last photo location was on Glyder Fach to photograph the 'Castle of the Winds' during sunset. Unfortunately the weather had other ides and the clouds and mists came in. When we arrived at Glydr Fach and set up our cameras we could hardly see the 'Castle'. We waited for some break in the weather, but it did'nt happen. Though i personallybeleive that the photo i got was one of the best ones i've taken. Then it was  a four hour descent via another route in the dark, finally arriving back at the base at 1:30am next day. Finally a two and a half hour drive back home.Glyder Fach Summit
