Default Hike in Wales

Not a succesfull one. Low fog, overcast and rainy. Managed to get few shots only after travelling 250 miles around Wales.

All C&C welcomed.

Greg










And since I was close I went to see this

Nice series Greg, my favorite are the first two, the framing and shape of the 2nd really make the shot, nicely done

I like them all, but agree that the first two are especially nice. But then, I love good fog pictures - they are hard to get right and you've done very well with them.

Gfurm - I will disagree with your words - "not a successful one." Perhaps photos were few in number, but certainly very rich in mood. #4 is my favorite of this lovely series - so many layers and such depth in one image...

I also think this is a wonderful series. I like #4 very much -- I want to ramble up the ridge that goes diagonally up to the right in that photo -- all the way to the top of the hill (or does it qualify as a mountain?) But my favorite is the first photo of the series. I love that very stately tree in the fog.

Thanks guys.

Not a succesfull one was more about me not seeing much rather than not getting many photos. I spent more time in the car than walking around. If weather was better I'd probably climbed Snowdon.

And they most certainly qualify as mountais, the one on the right (just outside of frame) climbs steeply to 747 meters above sea level.
