Having spent a few minutes photographing Moel Siabod as it performed in the sunlight, we jumped back in the car to continue our drive towards Snowdon. As we approached Capel Curig the view to the left opened up and we could see across Llynnau Mymbyr towards Mt. Snowdon. As usual, there was nowhere to stop! Fortunately, carrying on towards Snowdon there is a lay-by to pull into, right next to the lake. The weather was icy cold, crystal clear skies and still waters with morning sunlight shining on Snowdon in the background. Perfect.
After exploring the beach around the lake for a while I decided this was the best location. The trees to the left and the hills to the right give perfect balance to pull attention towards Snowdon. The reflected sky is almost as clear as a mirror.
