9th December 2012
Itching to get out after a full on week in University completing the 2nd week of my Masters degree. Looking forward to hitting some early morning landscapes and making the most of the Sunday before going home to cook a full Sunday lunch.
This morning, we set off for sunrise at Llyn Y Fan Fach reservoir, nearly a year to the date when I was last there (17th December) and there was no snow or frost to worry about this time.
The alarm call was 4:30am for a 5:30am departure. We arrived at our first stop but the weather was already against us. Rolling mist was in and the dank conditions seemed to be in for the morning. We still climbed the 30+ minutes to the top of the peak to the lake and spent a good 30 minutes talking amongst ourselves whilst one of our party went off to take some photos with his new wide-angle 17-40mm L.
On the way down we decided to do some long exposures at the falls below before moving on to our next spot and meet another friend who was going to be our guide to Afon Clydach falls.
On arrival at the car park for Clydach Falls, we met our other friend and headed through the quarry and down into the falls which was a very steep drop. With five of us it was a matter of moving around so we all had opportunity to take the falls without anyone else being in them.
After we had finished, we had a very steep climb back up which wasn’t easy but we made it to the summit and lived to tell the tale and show the photos.
Thanks for reading.
