Crisply drawn figures offset the soft grasses and clouds on the hill above Carreg Cennen castle. For me, this shot almost smells of summertime and the laziness of a warm afternoon, even on a windswept moorland landscape. Part of the beauty of Wales lies in its weather, which, (when not in extreme mode) provides a full range of seasons throughout the year.



I had been back from Singapore just four months when some friends treated me to a day up Pen y Fan, complete with Boxing Day coffee and cake. With the wind chill it was probably around -4 degrees Celsius at the top, with snow and gravel being blown around almost continuously. This shot was taken in the few minutes available when the wind dropped.
