Pen y Fan

By dasantillo  
The highest point in the Brecons - Pen y Fan, Brecon Beacons, Wales from Corn Du.

Taken yesterday morning. Temperature at car park was -7 degrees C so I guess at -9 here (450m higher). Wind gusting to 30mph, steady 20mph which makes the wind chill around -30 degrees C according to my Mountain and Leadership book! I needed all my 6 layers to keep warm! My water bottle contained mostly ice when I got back to the car! Camera performed flawlessly.

I've been up there so many times in the past but not for a long time now. Nice to see it so deserted! Wonderful colours.

I was up there on Saturday with my 8 yr old son.100`s of people up there braving the cold.The wind nearly blew us of when we got to the top of Crybin.Worth every minute though.
Great looking mountain ridge. Great shot.
