Winter arrived early this year. This photo was taken from my window on the 29th October. The Carneddau hills had a good covering of snow.Snow on the Carneddau, seen from my window.

 

 

 


 

 

 

Since then there has been snow on the peaks, sometimes a little more, sometimes less. But the hills do look special when covered in snow. These photos were taken on 2nd December.The Snowdon range from Capel Curig

It’s very early December so I’m sure there will be lots more photos during the rest of the winter.

North Wales is a special place, never more so than in winter.

As I’ve said in previous posts, North Wales has some wonderful scenery whatever the weather. Autumn has arrived now, so I thought I’d post the first batch of pictures.

The day was cloudy but patches of sun kept lighting up the hillsides. This is the first view of the Snowdon range from Llynau Mymbyr.

Sunlight kept lighting up the autumn colours.

The lower slopes are lit up by autumn sunshine, whilst the peak of Snowdon (to the  left) and Crib Goch (right) remain in shadow.

This beautiful colouring was between Capel Curig and Betws  y Coed.

Lovely autumn colours near Capel Curig

It’s been a wet October, so it was nice to see  this rainbow, Gods promise never to flood  the world again!

We had our first snow on the 28th October, very early for this area. These shots were taken from my front door, the first on the 28th, the next on the 29th.


Hopefully there will be more autumn pictures to follow, before winter really sets in.
