The Snowdonia files, Part 1

I’ve recently returned from a week-long photography trip to the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. The weather wasn’t great with lots of rain but still enough dry spells to get the Intrepid large format camera out and I also used the Reality So Subtle 6x6F pinhole (which fortunately doesn’t mind the rain at all).

Ideally I would show the images in order, day-by-day, but that would mean waiting until they were all developed, so what follows may be a bit random. To kick off here’s some pinhole images taken on the lower part of the Watkin Path, which is one of six or seven well-know routes up Snowdon, which is the highest mountain in England and Wales.

I didn’t actually go to the top of Snowdon on this holiday, but have been up before. I usually find that mountain summits are not the best place for the type of photography I do – the woods, waterfalls, and in the case of Wales, industrial archeology to be found on the lower slopes are more fruitful. Also, the summit of Snowdon is really crowded, partly due to the fact that there’s a train that goes all the way up !

All of these images were shot on Ilford Pan F+ in a RealitySoSubtle 6x6F pinhole camera, and developed in HC110.
