For a long, long time I have been promising to hike up to the summit of Snowdon in North Wales. As a proud Welsh man I almost felt embarrassed that I had never been to the summit.
Well having booked a day off work and cleared my calendar I was lucky enough to get perfect weather. All of the signs were there. It was time to finally experience one of the best sights that Wales has to offer.
The route I took was the Pyg Track, past Llyn Lydaw, then up past Glaslyn. To be honest it was harder than I expected, and there were times were I really wised that I had opted for mirrorless and Carbon Fibre. The 'Three Legged Thing' tripod, plus the weight of the D800 with a good chunk of the glass attached soon became contributing factor to my tiredness. I was rewarded well and truly however by perfectly clear visibility, and hardly any wind at all. When I reached the summit I experienced something that many don't a clear view across miles and miles of beautiful countryside.
Below are some of the photographs that I took on the way up, and once on top of the summit.
Sony Xperia Goodness
All of the photographs below were taken with my Camera phone. The camera in the Xperia Z3 is truly outstanding. I never get tired of taking quick shots with it, and luckily you can expand the memory using the MicroSD expansion slot.
