The weather forecast said "Dry & Sunny"

They lied......

But I didn't find out till I had got out of bed at 0400hrs and driven to Snowdonia...

However, the rain did eventually stop:

Is it ever really "dry & sunny" in the UK?

Gorgeous landscapes none the less. Third shot really grabs me.

What a wonderful set. Really love that mountain goat, or whatever he is. That one made my day! Amazing.

Great shots Dave. Since I got the K20 I don't worry about the weather too much other than my lenses aren't sealed. But I normally tuck the camera body and lenses into my jacket till I get ready to shoot then I take it out and put it back afterwords.

Great series. I like #4 and #5 the best. I like the way the rough rocks sort of play against the clearing gray clouds. Number 5 has that gushing water coming down the gorge, great play of colors and a bridge out of one of Tolkein's works.

Numbers 4, 5 and 6 are the stand outs for me. Really great shots!

Damn Brit

Great series Dave. Weather or not, I think Britain has some of the best natural 'photography light' you can find anywhere.
