Another effort from the Welshot Workshop a couple of weeks ago (still got the resulting chest infection!)

Llyn Idwal is a small lake (approx 800 m by 300 m) within Cwm Idwal in the Glyderau mountains of Snowdonia.

It is named after the son of one of the ancient Princes of Wales, legend stating that the unfortunate offspring was murdered by being drowned in the lake.

TBH, the day we were there, you didn't need to go anywhere near the lake to drown, just stand around a bit! Wink

You can tell how bad it was, because we all got terribly excited by that patch of lighter grey - - confidently telling each other it was "btightening up" Yeah, Right!!!!

Decided to keep the people on the other side of the lake in, as it shows just how bonkers we humans can be Grin

Have a lovely Sunday, Thanks for tuning in - must be bacon butty time - - red or brown?

Cheers!

Great foreground and excellent lead in. Agree leaving the people in does add the movement aspect to the shot. That mist is so very well captured. Looks very cold and wet Fran.

I've looked at both and this is the one I prefer. I like the way the rocks lead you towards that wee patch of lighter sky and the people walking away.
I can almost feel the drips running down my neck.
