Last week I drove down to the Sexten Dolomites to have a look at the Drei Zinnen. I stayed up at the Drei Zinnen hut for three nights and wandered around looking for photographs that might be included in my upcoming exhibition. I took this evening panorama looking across towards the north face of the Drei Zinnen as a weather front broke up and moved away.

Another image of Y Lliwed and the ruins of the copper mines. This time it´s a two shot panorama using a 28mm lens. On the left is the reservoir, Llyn Llydaw. I´m not sure if the miners who toiled there all those years ago had much time to take in the grandeur of this Welsh mountain cwm, probably not, but it´s a wonderfully impressive place. And, for me, a black and white landscape – maybe it´s got to do with it´s history, maybe it´s the monochrome power of the massive cliffs on Y Lliwed, maybe it´s both, anyway, here it is, in all it´s black and white grandeur!
