A shot from Cwm Idwal (N.Wales)....with Lyn Idwal backed by the crags of Y-Garn......

The f/g rocks are mostly underwater, which has accentuated their colour, & made me think of 'gold', though
they're more likely to be stained from the Copper deposits ??

Thanks everyone for the great response to 'Little bit of England II', glad you liked it.....& especially to (Irish) Kate for her
valued UA, thankyou !!

Those stones do look like gold - that water looks good enough to drink!
Combined with 'them there hills' - a very fine scene.
