    Jeez, Wales is beautiful. I've never been to Snowdonia, but I spent a week bicycle touring farther south, down around St. Davids and I really fell in love with the area. I'd love to get back and check out the Snowdonia area, but there are so many places on THAT list that I don't know if or when I will....

    In the meantime, thanks so much for those shots - I can live vicariously for now!

    Siejones - I hope I'm not hijacking your thread,
    Here are some shots of Snowdonia from my pre-μ4/3 days (all with a Sony point and soot I think)...

    The pembrokeshire coastline is great but yes you need to see Snowdonia my friend. I have visited it countless times now and pretty much stood on every peak from big to small several times and camped on many of them. But I still keep coming back for more and never get bored (only bored of the A5 drive in). Get up there and take you camera!

    Thanks :biggrin:

    Cool thanks for sharing these :smile:

    So you have done the mighty crib goch. Still gets my heart racing no matter how many time I do it and the scramble up is just unbeatable.

    Number 2 has to be my favorite of your set.

    Crib Goch is a beauty, I'd love to get a good photo of it without the crowds or under some good dawn / dusk lighting. Well I'm not daft enough to go up at dusk, so that leaves a very early morning...maybe one day.

    The one of Llanberis pass was taken from the Pen-y-pas carpark! We just pulled up to consult the map and watched the most amazing pre-sunset lightshow. The local weather system there is such a gamble, we got lucky that time - unike during one memorable ascent of Tryfan, where SCUBA gear would've been handy; I have never before been that wet.

    Hope to get over there again with the new camera, tripod and bivi.
