Moelfre, Dyffryn Ardudwy, Gwynedd, Wales

It was on a mixed day in June 2007 that I was introduced to Moelfre. This was around the point in that year when the weather disintegrated to give us a wet July and August together with sour taste in the mouths of those fancying the idea of sunny summer holidays. Needless to say, people like that will not recall the benign runs of sunny conditions that were gifted to us in the first half of the year.

On the day of that first visit, things looked promising enough when I inadvertently started my walk from Talybont. However, cloud eventually took over the sky to limit photographic activity. Later on, I was to find that a pair of boots were on the way out when they left in water from waterlogged ground. Nevertheless, I got little in the way of rain and the area has drawn me back again and again.

Low cloud was living on Moelfre when I next came the way for an out and back stroll from Dyffryn Ardudwy. It was on a walk to the top of Diffwys that the view captured above was gifted to me on a day that felt more like spring in a year when winter stayed for longer than usual. Later on, the hill saw me pass it again en route to the summit of Y Llethr, so it might be time to go to its top to see what can be seen from there.
