The story behind this image

Voted the most popular mountain in the UK, this is the crennelated peak of Tryfan in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.

From certain angles it looks like a giant Cornish pasty, and I've actually climbed it once in my younger days.

This view is from the shores of Llyn Ogwen, where I found these great lumps of rock to use as foreground interest for this photo as they caught the late spring afternoon sun.

These days I'm glad that mountains generally photograph better from the bottom looking up, rather than from the top looking down!
