A Spectacular Crepuscular Sunset on Dartmoor

Evening DSRT training on Dartmoor allowed us to witness one of the best sunsets on Dartmoor I have ever seen.  The crepuscular rays were stunning.  I kept tripping over just watching the sky change by the second.  I only had my iPhone, but it did a reasonable job of recording it.

Tavicinity Goes to Snowdonia

Summer holiday of sorts allows for a few days in Snowdonia.  The camera did not make it out of its bag due to excessive fog and rain.  Really excessive fog.  So, the photographs are iPhone's finest, but capture the time when we did see the dun briefly climbing down the north face of Tryfan.

Did Snowdon via Crib Goch in ridiculous fog and high winds.  Not really recommended (in terms of safety, but great fun).

Then did the horseshoe and finally dropped out of the cloud.  Next day was up Devil's Kitchen to Glyders (again in fog) then up Tryfan and down its north face (tricky).  But, the sun emerged and all was forgiven.
