Eryri National Park
For my birthday last January, I drove North into the Eryri National Park to skulk about with my camera.
I stopped again near Dolgellau to get this shot off the roundabout. Continued on and stopped at Trawsfynydd getting a few photographs here before moving on and stopping again in Porthmadog.
I wanted to get a photograph from the bridge on the way in, but the light disappeared too quickly. I ended up getting a couple of ok shots of the harbour with some pretty dramatic colour & light.
I ended up near Ogwen and found a car park by the lake to stop in, Set up my bed, made some noodles, watched a movie, and went to sleep.
It was fucking cold.
The night was cold and snowing heavily, I woke up to a hazy white morning and headed East across the A5 looking for things to photo.
I walked about with no direction snapping some pictures and generally enjoying the snow, I headed back West once again, parked by the lake, and had a little stroll around looking for pictures I could take of the lake and the mountains surrounding.
I drove back North to Bethesda and got some coffee and snacks before continuing my drive about the place, not really knowing where to go, or what to do. I ended up driving the main pass and stopping along the way whenever I felt like it.
Midway back down the a498 stopping at Llyn Gwynant for a couple of snaps before making my way back Down South for the evening.
It was a nice drive home, listening to Radio Cymru do a phone in which the contestants needed to identify a tractor by its engine noise.
