The Snowdon Massif

By Michael Ellis, 2013-04-22

Situated at the centre of the Snowdonia National Park is the Snowdonia Massif. This was the view on Saturday just gone. Most of the late snow that we have experienced has now gone. This image captures the true geological shape of the massif, as well as making the "Snowdon Horseshoe" very evident. The horseshoe is a challenging days walk comprising the peaks of Y Lliwedd (left on image), Snowdon (centre), and Garnedd Ugain and Crib Goch (right).

In the centre, the main valley, Cwm Dyli, leads up to Snowdon and attracts many walkers.

In North Wales, we have experienced high pressure weather conditions over the last couple of days which has brought sunshine and great visibility. This has allowed the full majesty of the Northern Snowdonia scenery to be appreciated.

On St Dwynwen's day, only one photo would suffice......Llanddwyn Island ...... The name Llanddwyn means "The church of St. Dwynwen". Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of lovers.
