New Year Snowfall

What a treat. I was out and about with sketch book and camera. We spent New Years Day in the Beacons on a favorite walk near Dyfynnog and we were  back in the area two days later on another walk at the Craig Cerrig Geisiad a Fan Frynach nature reserve. Closer to home the Towy Valley looked especially beautiful over the new year and I got some lovely photos of early morning mist on the Towy near my home and photos of Dinefwr and Dryslwyn castles.

This may make a good subject for class. It reminds me of a Seago or Wesson or Fletcher-Watson picture with the large tree on the left throwing shadows across the road. Any guesses where it is?

A morning walk alone along The Towy- saw a fox.

We may work on this image in class. The trees need to be straightened and possibly lean inwards.

The castle kept appearing and then vanishing into the mist. I may use one of the images on next years Xmas card. You have to think ahead!

We bumped into a few friends who had the same idea.

Doing a bit of scribbling at the entrance to the reserve.

This has got to be one of my favorite places ever near the top of the world - Dyfynnog. There are views over to Pen y fan, the Black Mountains and the Carmarthen Bans. There should be some paintings from this visit.
