The story behind this image

During a bitterly cold March 2018, which saw the 'beast from the east' weather system dump snow over most of Wales, my wife Liz and I finally made it out of the house once the roads became passable once again at the end of the month.

We headed straight for the Snowdonia National Park to see how the mountains looked with a capping of snow before the warmer temperatures melted it all away.

One of the iconic views we stopped to admire was this one, out over Llyn Mymbyr towards the peaks of the Snowdon Horseshoe to the west.

We were quite suprised at how little snow there was here, having driven through substantial drifts between Denbigh and Betws-y-Coed to reach this spot.

But even so, the light covering on the high peaks provided a striking visual contrast to the darker landscape below, and it was well worth enduring the cold and wind for a few minutes spent hunched over my tripod as I took the sixteen individual frames I needed to make this panoramic collage.

Then it was back into the car and onwards to our next wintry view in the sensory wonderland of Snowdonia.
