The views from the summit of Y Garn at 947m must rate as some of the best in Wales. The walk up from Llyn Idwal is steep and slow going and with icy paths and a gusty headwinds hard work. On this particular January day the cloud base was hiding the summits but I was hopeful of some clearer periods. On my assent I was rewarded with a small window where the cloud lifted from the summit of Tryfan. The main problem was the path was very busy with large groups of walkers. Fortunately the conditions held long enough for them to clear from view and for me to capture what I think is my best shot of the day. Soon after the clouds descended and covered the surrounding peaks. Continuing the walk, I reached the summit which was completely covered in cloud. It looked grim so I made the decision to head down towards Llyn y Cwn which is a small lake above the Devils Kitchen. On the way down there were brief periods where the cloud broke and I took the opportunity to grab a quick shot from the ridge. Soon after the clouds closed in again and I moved on. On reaching Llyn Y Cwn it was mid afternoon. I ruled out the decent of the Glyder's due to the cloud hanging on the peaks and that time was against me, so I made the descent down the spectacular devils staircase and back to the car past Llyn Idwal. This was not the end of my photographic day. Once back at the car there was enough time to drive to the viewpoint on the A498 which looks across Llyn Gwynant to capture the sunset. A good finish to a long day.
