Frost in Cwm Cynfal

This image, taken in January 2009, proves that you don’t need an SLR to take good photos.   Sometimes it helps, though!

A ruined bothy (or bwthyn) stands on the side of Cwm Cynfal, near Ffestiniog in North Wales.   This is a remote and beautiful spot:   on a fine day, you can see right across to the Llyn Peninsula, and down towards Arenig Fawr and Cadair Idris in the south.   There used to be a few red grouse up there on the moors, as well as hen harriers and merlins.
