    Exclamation Snowdonia Panoramics ~ 56k

    Hey all, some shots from our 4 day weekend at the end of Feb. Did loads of walking, about 8 miles a day - Plenty of snow knocking about as well

    Day 1

    Walk up to Cwm Idwal, mega cold and windy! dry though

    Tryfan


    Llyn Idwal


    Llyn Idwal Panoramic


    then walked up higher to ridge on the right of the lake, could hardly stand up due to the wind - shame the photo doesn't portray the snot running across your face, eyes watering and non feeling of fingers, even in gloves LOL

    Cwm Idwal Panoramic


    Dropped back down to the lake and went around up the path towards Devil's Kitchen, path made up of boulders was lost under slush and ice and we lost the path someway up causing us to scramble across the face of the hill, pretty scary but a big achievement once at the top!

    Cwm Idwal and Pen yr Ole Wen Panoramic


    Day 2

    Headed off to do the Miner's Track, it's one of six paths which go all the way to the summit of Snowdon. We knew we wouldn't make it to the top as weather was low and conditions under foot wouldn't be good enough.

    Llyn Lockwood and Carnedd Moel Siabod


    Llyn Teryn and Carnedd Moel Siabod


    Llyn Teryn and Carnedd Moel Siabod Panoramic


    further up the track met another lake

    Llyn Llydaw Panoramic


    circled the lake and carried on going up but weather closed in, heavy snow settling over the path about 1 inch in 3 mins ~ decided it was best to head back

    Craig Penlan to Carnedd Moel


    Day 3

    Another route up Snowdon this time the Watkin Path, pretty tough going on the knees, very pretty with waterfalls and rivers though

    Watkin Path I


    Afon Cwm Llan


    Afon Cwm Llan Panoramic


    Watkin Path Panoramic


    Watkin Path II


    headed back down again due to weather, rain this time! lol

    Thanks for looking and shall be back up that way in the summer to conquer the mountain!

    Dude, you've excelled again! Absolutely stunning work!



    Helen and I went up there for a short weekend but the weather was much less impressive so no photos were had, but I'm bursting to get up there with the new kit!

    If you ever fancy having a mooch somewhere to take some shots, ping me a msg...

    Once again, stunning shots fella!

    Amen to that! Do you find that you notice it the most the second you decide that's enough in one spot and put the camera back in the bag? I bleedin' hate it!

    Fantastic pictures as always Drew!

    Do you use a filter on these pictures? The contrast against the sky looks really good, i'm keen to learn a few of these tricks (if indeed there is one!)

    Thanks very much - yeh sorry, forgot to mention all these were shot with 7D + 17-40 f/4L in portrait orientation, and also 2 and 3 stop soft graduated neutral density filters stacked - then about 6/7 shots stitched together in CS3 Photomerge

    Thanks definitely get some, the feeling of being able to keep the sky in check and expose for the foreground is great

    check out www.formatt.co.uk for filters

    if you can spare the extra cash go for the Lee filters, They are so much better than anything else that i have tried.
