A Dusting of The White Stuff (and a Kamikaze iPhone)

This was one awesome way to spend a Friday.

I had booked the day off due to the promise of a cold/snowy weather front, and it is fair to say that I wasn't disappointed. The weather was absolutely stunning. I have never experienced weather like it in North Wales, and it is very likely that I will be getting back up there as many times as possible throughout the cold period. The only down side was that as I parked up the great visibility and lovely dark blue skies turned to a muggy grey and clouds closed in. Not to be deterred however I parked up at the Pen-Y-Pass and walked up the Miners track towards Llyn Llydaw.

See Map below for route. The dropped pin indicating the Car Park at Pen-Y-Pass.

Once I had reached Llyn Lladaw I set about taking some photos. This was actually incredibly difficult with the constant flurry of snow and the high winds. All of this with gloved on means that I am especially happy with the resulting images. CLICK TO EXPAND

Take a look at the video below to get a sense of just how amazing it was to be up in the mountains on a day like this.

I had decided to try and make my blog posts a bit more 'media rich'. In an attempt to do this I had purchased a little tripod. This is how NOT to perch your iPhone however.

The resulting video came out something like this. 

And the end result. A cracked Zagg Invisible Shield screen. It could have been so much worse and I am so thankful that I had purchased one of these screens otherwise my iPhone 6S+ could have been a casualty within it's first week of service!!
