Snowdonia 2005

This sequence was shot by Ken Wilkinson in June 2005. It's a flight from Meol Elio, by Llanberis, over to Snowdon, down onto Crib Goch, across Cym Dyli and on past Beddgelert. Both of us landed near Harlech on the other side of the estuary.

Obviously the great thing for me about this photoset is it covers almost my entire flight, with several shots of me above the Snowdon massif and even one on take off. My parents also first go together on a school trip to Snowdonia and my mum particularly likes the one of me above the Llanberis pass :)
