    Those are brilliant Louby, I especially like the first one, very atmospheric.

    Hi snow-storm B) No didn't go up into the snow level, stuck to the car can tell you temp was 5c according to the car :) Was the first time I have been, and was in awe of the mountains, was beautiful, according to the snowdon site it is the earliest it has had snow on it for a long time.

    Thank you James :) it's one of my fav's too, I used a graduated ND filter on that one just to so I could get the colour in the foreground and not have the mountains and clouds over exposed, I think its work ok :)

    thanks all for your kind comments :)

    First time thre is always a stunner. I normaly go deep into winter. Once when we went, there was a covering of snow on the ground, waterfalls frozen to leave beautiful ice-icles it was a Brilliant, Unfortanatly i had no camera back then. Temperatures were around 0c - -1c even throughout the day. The big lake at the top was even frozen to an extent. Really good hike B) .

    Thanks for replying

    Ah will have to make an effort to get up to mum's if the temp really drops, would love to see the waterfalls frozen!

    Be sure to wrap up warm though. Temperatures don't half plummet when that sun goes down B)

    For the falls to be frozen it has to be below 0c though i think. So i'd look on their site to see or even look on the bbc website, they have a live snowdon camera right at the summit.

    Thanks

    :) A 7 hour trip! Thats extreme. It takes that long for us to get to lands end from where we are! Sorry for making you jelous lol, i didn't realise how far away you lived. I could get to Ben-Nevis with ease in that time :) , It is a lovely place though and probably well worth the drive for you. It only takes me an hour and a half :)

    P.s anyone else notice anything wrong with the reply box? it's not going onto a new line its going far off the page

    Excellent pics Louby, really like them.

    I think you've done a great job with the graduated filter on the first shot, was it cheap or did it cost a bit if you don't mind me asking? Not keen on mine it seems a bit of a browny yellow colour, not black.

    Waterfall shots are great too, I love the light on the water in the second one.

    Well done B)

    B) Thank you kindly Mark B)

    The grads are just cokin filters, the square type that you slot into an adapter, not sure how much they were as Joe got them for me for Xmas a couple of years back, Will ask him :) The filters I used on the swallow falls, were full ND's which he got for a couple of quid each off of a shop on ebay just before we went to Cornwall.

    Thanks, my Uncle has the Cokin square filters and they seem good, better than screwing them on and off, and they seem like quality. Maybe I will invest in some :)

    Don't think they are top quality but for the likes of me they are top notch B) I find the square ones are easier to store too , well now Joe found me a little cokin filter holder they are

    Stunning photos Lou, I think you was there at just the right time, with the snow not to heavy.

    Imo you get a much better depth of the mountains when the snow is light, mountains tend to merge into one another with a blanket of snow.

    Think the water falls are stunning too. :lol:
