Probably one of our best days in the hills. A drive in fog , reach Brecon in snow and climb Pen Y Fan in whiteout. The Canon on this occasion packed up, the Olympus was the back up.A day that will live with us forever.

Just to show the rule of thirds isn't carved in stone .. the central composition works wonderfully here, with the split of light and dark working well on either side. I presumed this was not in the UK but it surprises and inspires me to find it is. Beautiful image Ron. regards, Paul.

I am amongst world class photographers such as Frans Lanting, George Rodgers just to name two ! A privilage to say the least. Ron.
