The weather was typically changeable on this day I was out climbing Tryfan. The cloud would repeatedly lower then lift again making for an ever-changing scene. It was a day when there wasn’t going to be perfect conditions at first and last light for beautifully lit mountain-scapes. Nevertheless, there was enough interest in the weather conditions to suggest that photographic opportunities could present themselves and encouraged me to think more creatively about potential compositions.

I finally came across this wonderfully textured rock surface with all its cracks, vegetation and tiny puddles, which I could use to provide interesting foreground and geological context for the mountains beyond. The colour of the rock tones well with the sky and mountain backdrop to bring a lovely calmness and subtlety to the image.
