  •  Probably not the most recognisable view in Eryri (Snowdonia) but sometimes I will paint a picture for totally selfish reasons. This was such a painting. Despite the rather uncomfortable conditions, it was really cold with a biting northerly wind, I was content, enjoying myself even. I was making my way up a long tedious slope but for some reason I felt wonderful. In this state of mind everything looks and feels enhanced somehow, I think it has a lot to do with the fact that here I was, on my own on the mountain in quite difficult conditions, but I was in control. These sort of conditions are without doubt the best time to capture the mountains in their true state.
