Mist and missing Capel Curig – Happy New Year!



This will be my last post of 2015 and hopefully it’s a fitting end to what has been a thoroughly enjoyable year of black and white photography.

The five images in this entry were all taken on the last morning of my stay in Capel Curig, Snowdonia in Wales at the beginning of November. Although the mist was very atmospheric, (isn’t it always) I had been hoping for some early morning sun to break through. Although this didn’t materialise, I am still happy with the results of an hour spent in a field immediately opposite where I had been staying, for what proved to be a great introduction to this part of Snowdonia. I don’t have any New Year resolutions but I do know that I want to return to this beautiful part of the UK in the not too distant future.

Until then may I take this opportunity to thank everyone who has visited my blog, and liked or made comments about some of the entries. I am always very grateful for the feedback, it’s much appreciated.

Have a very happy New Year and may 2016 bring you peace and good health; and if you are a photographer like me, I hope you will be inspired to take some fine images in the year ahead.

      Thanks Andy… and a very Happy New Year to you as well. It was memorable trip to Snowdonia. Perhaps our paths will cross again in 2016?

      Thank you skip. I shall also look forward to your posts in 2016. May I wish you a very happy and peaceful New Year. (Apologies for not replying before now.)

    Capel Curig has been in my thoughts recently because of the monumental amounts of rainfall in that area. Snowdonia is also my favourite mountain area of the UK – there’s something very special about being on a mountain top and seeing the sea in the distance. Great atmosphere in these shots, Alan. A very happy New Year to you too.

      Thanks Andy. I know The Lakes and parts of Scotland but never visited Snowdonia until last year. I definitely wish to return – I am no mountaineer or climber but there is something rather special about the place which I really like.
