Fan Brycheiniog

There is something about these mountain ridges in the Brecon Beacons that I have always found intriguing, and they have an extra grace in the snow. In 2005, the full cake-white covering had gone by the end of March, but on Easter Monday the bare structure of the mountain was set in high relief by the ice and snow that remained.


Llyn y Fan Fawr

Llyn y Fan Fawr, (lake of the big peak) is a beautiful place in fine weather, though you would not always want to carry a 2kg view camera up here, together with film packs and assorted lenses. It is about 600 metres above sea level. However, using 4" by 5" sheet film does have some advantages in picking out detail and emphasising contrast.
