I can’t believe it’s April already! Usually I’ve done Pen Y Fan a few times at this stage of year. This is my first trip to Pen Y Fan this year!
I met up with a few Loonies from TalkPhotography for our first photography meet of 2016. The plan was to do a sunrise shoot at Llangorse Lake, followed by a lazy lunch, and then Pen Y Fan for sunset; a long day of photography.
Was off work today and decided last night that the weather conditions on Pen Y Fan might just lead to a great sunrise.
I had a busy weekend this weekend. On Friday I made the decision to hike Pen Y Fan for sunrise Saturday Morning. This involved leaving the house at 2am and arriving at the Storey Arms car park just after 3am and hiking up to the highest summit in South Wales in time for sunrise at 5:15am. I made it to the top ridge around 4am and sheltered from the wind while enjoying a cup of tea. While waiting for it to get a bit lighter, I noticed that I wasn’t alone and seen a dozen pairs of eyes watching me. It seems I had found a flock of sheep also sheltering from the wind.
