It never snows by me so I decided to visit Snowdonia to take a look at real snow and mountains. It was far better than I could have hoped for. At times it was like driving through the Alps. Blue skies, gorgeous sun light, huge snow covered valleys. Just breathtaking. I got some Provia film for my EOS50 and also took my A70. I've yet to develop the Provia but I took a look through my A70 shots. Annoyingly f/8 just isn't enough for landscape photography, but at these sizes it doesn't look too bad. I had a great day and totally love my TomTom device. It takes away any worry about finding your way home. You can just drive around looking for photos knowing you can hit the home button when its time to leave. It was also great because it shows roads by the lakes so you can tell TomTom to take you to these vantage points. Very very handy. So all these shots were taken on my little Canon A70 3.2 MP camera. I was very impressed by its performance after using my 10D for the past 18 months. #1 This first shot was probably the nicest place I found. I had googled the area looking for ideas and I was happy to find this place. Let me set the scene. I had Radio 1 on in the car as I arrived and KT Tunstall was reading a passage from her favourite book. It was snowing, the clouds were drifiting over the mountains and I was listening to KT Tunstall's very lovely voice. Kinda makes me wanna move out there #2 This was taken at the Llanberris Pass. I stopped at the car park were nutters go walking up Snowdon. The car park was near full! The view must have been amazing though. #3 Taken later on in the day when the light was nicer. I spent a lot of the time hand holding my 58mm polarizer in front of my A70 to get a nicer shot While I was here I browsed TomTom for my next place to visit. According to TomTom Snowdon was 40 mins away. I was debating visiting it as it was the point of my trip. However, I seemed to recall that the view from Llyn Peris did indeed include Snowdon. I was debating a 40 minute drive to god knows where or whether I should revisit Llyn Peris now the sun was shining and the skies were blue. Llyn Peris being 20 mins away.
