Llyn Padarn and Llanberis in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, as seen from the Dinorwig slate quarry

One of the quieter places to explore in the ever busy Snowdonia National Park in North Wales is the abandoned slate quarry at Dinorwig, high above the Pass of Llanberis and giving spectacular views out over Llanberis and Llyn Padarn.

Mind you - it helps to visit on a nice day - rain and slate can be a bit grey!

Thomas Telford's iconic suspension bridge over the Menai Straits, North Wales, at dusk

The first snows of winter 2016 proved too good to resist from a photographic point of view, and where better to include the white capped peaks of Snowdonia in a composition than overlooking the Menai Straits, with Thomas Telford's iconic suspension bridge taking centre stage in the gathering dusk.

Beaches are wonderfully dynamic places to photograph, with water and sand combining in an infinite variety of patterns, colours, shapes and textures.
