Llyn Idwal is located near to Snowdon. It is a valley with easy and harder walks. It is peaceful for most of the time, except for when RAF jets do their low level flight training. This shot was taken in October 2007 hence the old camera.
Should have added some Welsh Male Voice Choir singing. Now rectified!

Excellent composition with an interesting crop, David.
Soaked my feet in it on more than one occasion.

A gorgeous b&w, full of the detail due to the reflection in the lake and the inevitable mountainside textures. I'm struggling to remember the last time I was there: in the mid 1970s perhaps; in any event, far too long ago. Hoping to rectify that next year.

Mike and Bill, thank you very much indeed for your kind comments. With the advance in photographic technology these days if anyone is going to Llyn Idwal not only take a smartphone for landscapes but also a long lens just in case the aircraft come, and set up your camera settings well before the aircraft come because you do not have much advance notice of their arrival!

What a broad sweeping landscape with plenty of details and these reflections in the water completes a very good image. Well worth my UA
