Views from Snowdon, Snowdonia National Park

During Easter I visited Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, staying at the Royal Victoria Hotel at LLanberis. The weather on the 2nd day there was great so took the opportunity to ascend Mount Snowdon. I did it the easy way by taking the mountain railway up, which was only a stone’s throw away from the hotel. These are the pictures I took before taking the long easy walk back down. All were taken on Fuji Velvia 50 slide film at F16 with a circular polariser.

(You can scroll from the pictures by clicking on any 1 image and following the instructions)

The first 3 shots taken around the summit were all with my Zuiko Olympus OM 24mm F2 lens looking towards Nant Gwynant. When taking these, their was one incredible annoying guy (from now on called Richard) who had opinion on all things including that this was not the best time to take photographs. So here’s to Dick!

and finally this one was taken on the stroll back down to LLanberis with one of the mountain railway trains climbing up the track. This one was taken with my Zuiko Olympus OM 35-80mm F2.8 lens.
