Christmas Eve, an easy drive to empty car parks and moody weather in Snowdonia. Unless its bouncing down with rain and the forecast is for all day, I will head out of the door for shots like this. Snowdonia is not that large and based to the east of it means a 25 mile mile drive from home. Arrived to find a few avoiding the last minute Christmas mayhem and seeking solace in the hills :). The plan was to follow the Nant Bochlwyd up stream towards the Lake (Llyn Bochlwyd). The idea was to keep Tryfan as the background subject using the Nant (brook or stream) as a lead in line along with ridges, rocks and trees. This time of year the slopes are very marshy bogs with all the recent and persistent rains draining into the inevitable lakes in the valley floors. Didn't take long to arrive at this location from the road. My favourite Landscape lens on, Kase Circular polariser and a two stop Grad to balance the sky.
