Also Pen y fan with some snow blowing of the middle ridge.
Nice selection showing the evolution of conditions. I like particularly the one with the contrasting larches and the one with blowing snow.

Cheers Rob... even if its not true I have learnt why the Larch was so revered on monty python!... it catches fire in some sorts of light at this time of year.
... I wasn't able to take any from a similar position today so here are a couple of Pen-y-Fan & Pics ddu (as you can see from the time - light was poor) as seen in Brecon.

The glaciers left some nice cliffs just for snow blowing!
Today was dank as dank could be , and these two pictures taken late in the day , almost past dusk, depict the mild air arriving from the west.. the windward sides show least snow with temps rising from 1°C to 7°C along with over 12mm of rain. Taken from Llangorse looking WWS toward pen y fan.

one picture from the 28th and a few from today.
Nice shots Andy! Last time I climbed these was in early Dec. There was snow up there, above 700m, but you couldn't see more than 50m as warm advection from the SW was forming extensive low cloud/fog over the summit!

Hi Matt ... Missed your post, its an age thing!.... still worth without the view though... even the smell is good. ... I bet it was just the last few hundred feet though.
......... so there's some folk up on the summint in the last photo here that could see well to the north & west but not south and east!
4th was the last time I saw snow on the mountains... thats 22 days of winter without eeek.
heres to the next 2 months of snow views [cheers]
