Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

Well, I just can't believe it 100 today! (I certainly don't feel that old! Just joking!) It really doesn't feel that long since I was introduced to this excellent site and very timidly uploaded my first shot!

Let me say a big thank you to all contributors here who have inspired me, and all the people who have supported me and offered good advice, not only to improve my photography, but also to keep me motivated and interested.

As a complete change from my theme, and to remind myself of a very happy weekend spent at a wedding on Anglesey, I am posting this view of Snowdonia. I was standing in the grounds of Plas Newyyd looking over the Menai Straits towards the mountains.

(If you would like further information about Plas Newyyd, please see my earlier postings.)

Here is some information about Snowdon from Wikipedia:
Snowdon (Welsh: Yr Wyddfa), the highest mountain in Wales and the highest British mountain south of the Scottish Highlands, is "probably the busiest mountain in Britain". It is located in Snowdonia National Park (Welsh: Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri), in Gwynedd. The summit is known as Yr Wyddfa (IPA: [ɐɾ 'wɪðva], Welsh for "the tumulus" and lies at an altitude of 1,085 m (3,560 ft) above sea level. For comparison, it is the same height as Table Mountain in South Africa. As the highest peak in Wales, Snowdon is one of three mountains climbed as part of the National Three Peaks Challenge. The English name Snowdon comes from the Saxon "Snow Dun", meaning "snow hill", although the amount of snow on Snowdon in winter has been decreasing recently, having dropped by more than 55% since 1994.


Many thanks for stopping by.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)
