Winter camping around Pen Y Fan
Friday 20 January 2023
I'd not been wild camping for over a year, since before my second son was born, so was delighted when time to head for the hills coincided with such fantastic winter conditions.
First light after a wild night, windy and chilly
Pen Y Fan sunrise - many people on the summit, while I was alone on nearby Cribyn
Orange fade to inky blue, another camp out in the snowy hills
A promising start to the next morning
But the cloud swept in, hiding the summits
Warm tones, but it was below freezing
Looking down to the fog covered fields far below
Such a beautiful winter day
The setting sun found a crack in the clouds
Rainbow drama the next morning
But with flatter light in the day, looking from Pen Y Fan over Cribyn to the Black Mountains
I'd love to hear what you think...
