CAVE! WHAT CAVE? (23/09/09)

image  TODAYS RAMBLE.........In racing parlance the 'Going was Soft'. It's not as far as it looks, the scale is 2.5" to the mile. What with the heavy going, fighting old tree roots and searching for the cave it took the best part of four and a half hours.
Woke at five and listened to the weather forecast at five thirty, overcast with the odd light shower clearing shortly. That'll do us! So back to bed for an hour, breakfasted, packed a sandwich, coffee and water. Off we went in shorts and a T-Shirt, I did, Molly has to make do with her fur coat. Nothing wrong with a touch of optimism even if it did turn out to be misplaced.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   BRAMBLE, HEATHER AND PINE.....Taken from the same spot as the image I messed with the other day.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   GORSE.....Was not aware it flowered this time of the year...... Probably isn't Gorse.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   SNOWDEN....Hidden in the cloud, starting to look a little ominous but fortunately it's down wind of me
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   CRAIG WEN FOREGROUND AND YR ARAN.....or all but a bit of it.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    FOEL GOCH AND MOEL EILIO........The latter with it's head well in the clouds. A splash of sun in the foreground.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA     LLEYN PENINSULAR.......those with keen eyes can just about see Bardsey Island on the horizon.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA      BELOW THE SUMMIT OF MOEL yr ORGOF.......Never found his cave but at least he had water.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA     SAME TARN, WHOOPS! LLYN.....The summit is out of picture to the right, we tramped around in the mist to no avail and no cave. Then the rain came, away with the camera and out with a fleece and full waterproofs.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA      ABOVE BWICH MEILLIONEN..... was hoping for not only a cave but some panoramas. Lugged a tripod, filters, the full works up here only to have rain stop play. A pleasant walk never the less.
Most of these images have been double processed. The sky was selected first and given a seeing to then the foreground was selected and sorted. Not really a picture taking day. You get what I get!
Moving down to Porthmadog tomorrow, there are a couple of nature reserves so you can look forward to some blurry pictures of birds.

  1. The images that I got to see are so different from anything I have seen in our neck of the woods, so to speak, that they look like the paradise to me. Nice photography.

  2. Good photos of the wilderness. And I've just been reminded myself, that me and another 2 bloke set about renovate this old water mill in Porthmadog. I wonder its still there. I was 19, and a lot of years have flown by.
