Snowdonia National Park

The Snowdonia National Park (or Eryri in Welsh) is one of the most beautiful areas on planet Earth.  Being Welsh, you might think I would be biased, but if you’ve visited this incredible mountainous area of natural beauty, you will understand what I mean.  The Snowdonia National Park was the first in Wales to be designated a ‘National Park’ in 1951 and includes the United Kingdom’s third highest mountain, Snowdon – Yr Wyddfa at 1085 metres.  The park covers 823 square miles and includes the Snowdon massif itself, the Glyderau, the Carneddau, the Moelwynion and the Moel Hebog range.  I have the opportunity of hiking through the mountains on a number of occasions and have tried to capture the magnificence of the region in a photograph (which is impossible).  And here are some of my favourites.
