The story behind this image

The Snowdonia National Park in North Wales boasts some magnificent scenery, and magnificent weather!

Put the two together and you have the recipe for some truly spectacular photography.

Such as a series of images I captured overlooking the stunning Llyn Ogwen at sunrise very early in the morning in late May 2007.

With just a glimmer of sunlight seeping through a crack in the storm clouds swirling over the high peaks of the Glyderau and Carneddau mountains, I watched entranced at the drama being played out before my eyes (and my camera's lens, of course).

I stayed in this wonderful spot as long as I could before finally, and very reluctantly, packing my gear away and heading off to work.
