Railway Line And Snowy Mountain

I couldn’t decide which photo I prefer – this one, or yesterday’s photo of Harlech Railway Station taken from the main road. Both have their strong points, so I’m going with this version of the shot for today’s wallpaper, and I’ll let you decide which one you like the most.

Harlech Railway Station

Harlech Railway Station lies on the plain below Harlech town and the world heritage castle, with the main road around Harlech and down to the beach cutting across the single track that leads up from Barmouth. It was particularly deserted on Easter Sunday, giving me plenty of time to safely grab this shot from the road.

Horse And Mountain

Today’s wallpaper continues the Easter in Snowdonia theme, and is another superb guest photo by the wonderfully talented Mrs H.

If you look closely at yesterday’s wallpaper photo, you can just make out this horse on the near horizon. I shot that photo full-frame, which limited how much I could pick out just the horse, but Mrs H was using a crop-sensor body, which allowed her to get much tighter on the horse than I could.

Easter Sunday In Snowdonia

Continuing the theme of Easter in a snowy Snowdonia, here’s a lovely shot taken from the front of our hotel on Easter Sunday, just as we were checking out.

If you’re thinking of booking a stay in and around Harlech, I highly recommend staying at the Maes-y-Neuadd hotel, especially if (like me) you suffer from a food allergy. It’s a wonderful place with lots of character and fantastic food, and they did a fantastic job of making sure that they served up food that I could safely eat. We’ve been there a couple of times now, and we’ll definitely be going back again at some point in the future.

The House At The Foot Of The Mountain

My current theme is Snowdonia in the Snow at Easter, with guest photos by Mrs H!

I know I’m biased, but what a beautiful shot this is by Mrs H, looking up the Llanberis Pass, to end the week. (I think that’s Cae Gwyn right at the foot of the shot).

Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back on Monday with more photos from Snowdonia. And, as a bonus, there’ll be some great 25×9 format shots from our holiday starting tomorrow!

The Llanberis Pass In The Snow

My current theme is Snowdonia in the Snow at Easter, with guest photos by Mrs H!

We both stood at the foot of the Llanberis Pass for a bit, enjoying stretching our legs in the bright sunshine after the drive up from our home in South Wales, wondering whether or the pass was clear all the way up. We needn’t have worried, as the steady procession of coaches coming down the pass attested to it being nice and clear.

It was only during the drive up that we realised that the coaches weren’t coming down the pass, but were instead apparently coming from some sort of outdoor centre just around the corner!

The Path Up The Mountain

My current theme is Snowdonia in the Snow at Easter, with guest photos by Mrs H!

From the Menai Straight, we headed south to Llanberis, the village that sits at the foot of Mount Snowdon. We weren’t sure what conditions would be like – the Llanberis Pass had been closed when I’d last checked the day before. But it was open, and we were able to get some photos before we drove up through the pass.

The eastern side of the foot of the pass is dominated by Electric Mountain, the Dinorwig Hydro-electric Power Station that we studied as kids in school. The power station is built on the site of a disused slate quarry, which I believe is the Dinorwic Quarry.

From the pass, the snow highlighted these strange and distinctive pathways up the side of the old quarry face. This is the best of my efforts to pick them out and capture them.

Menai Suspension Bridge and a Snowy Snowdonia

My current theme is Snowdonia in the Snow at Easter, with guest photos by Mrs H!

The Menai Straight is a body of water that separates the Isle of Anglesey from the mainland of North Wales. It’s spanned by two bridges: the Britannia Bridge (which we’ll see in a couple of weeks’ time), and Telford’s Menai Suspension Bridge. In the background are the mountains of Snowdonia, shivering in an unseasonal heavy fall of snow.

I’ve tried my hand at this shot before, back in 2003 with the Nikon D100. Things did look a lot warmer back then!

Towards Cadair Idris

I’m back! Had a bit of a break due to several hospital appointments all arriving at once. All of that is over for the time being.

Not only am I back, but this time I’m not alone. Mrs H and I spent Easter 2013 up in Snowdonia, enjoying the wonderful sight of the Welsh mountains after heavy snow. We both had our cameras with us, and over the next few weeks I’ll be including shots taken by both of us on the blog.

To get started, on the drive up to North Wales we stopped at Cross Foxes (what a fantastic name!) to enjoy the wonderful view of the ever-mighty Cadair Idris mountain and sub-peaks rising in the distance. One day, I want to go back when it’s sunny and enjoy the walks in the area; it’s something I haven’t managed to do yet.
