Photographer's Note

Back in November the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia had received their first covering of snow of the Winter. I had been visiting this area of outstanding natural beauty for many years, but for some reason I had never been there while it wore a winter coat.

When the weekend arrived I dashed over to Wales and we walked up to the summit plateau of Glyder Fawr and Fach where the scene was almost arctic. The rock was all rimed up with snow and ice. We then descended back to the valley down the Y Gribin ridge as pictured. The white of the snow really contrasted against the russets, browns and greens of the landscape far below, beyond the snowline and the blue of the sea in the far distance.
