Midwinter in Snowdonia, Wales by Peter Williams

This is the most common view of 'The Snowdon Horseshoe' as it is known, looking westwards across the waters of Llynnau Mymbyr from the lakeside near the National Mountain Sports Centre at Plas-Y-Brenin at Capel Curig in North Wales. What isn't common is to find atmospheric conditions that leave the scene this calm and clear during the middle of winter. Not a breath of wind, nor a cloud in the sky. The lake surface was like glass and the reflections as clear as I have ever seen here. The boulders that litter the shoreline at this end of the lake offer numerous options for a composition.

Sun was off to the left so some additional colour saturation as a consequence. None added post capture: it really was colourful enough.
