Cefn Cwm Llwch

By jond
I seem to make a habit of climbing up mountains as everybody else is climbing back down them! This was taken last week in the Brecon Beacons. The sun had already dropped below the ridge as I climbed up the track from the car park at Cwm Gwdi, but I was hoping for a final burst of light on the mountain tops. The gamble paid off with the setting sun breaking through to shine across Pen-y-fan. I kept shooting until the last of the light had gone, then set off back down the mountain - relying on gravity and instinct to guide me down in the dark!

Well worth it John, can't fault your timing. A smidgeon of snow up there this weekend perhaps?

Thanks everyone. Reckon you could be right Gwyn, theres certainly a bit of a nip in the air tonight! I wouldn't be surprised if theres a bit of frost on the mountain tops in the morning.
