A quickly grabbed shot of the post-sunset glow over Snowdon from the summit of our local peak Moel Famau this evening. Mt Snowdon is made up of the three peaks on the left of the horizon.

We are lucky enough to have this country park on our doorstep. It’s nothing spectacular when held up against nearby Snowdonia national park, but serves as a great local bolt-hole for a fix of fresh air. Once in a while it all falls into place – with the sun, snow and the last of the autumn colour it starts to feel like somewhere far more remote.

The bottom image is a panorama, molded from seven portrait shots. The clarity of the original image is astounding, but you will have to take my word for it looking at this postage stamp version!

More ‘playing’ with new zoomy lens. I must justify its not insubstantial price tag by using it for something a little more involved than doggy photos at some point (sorry Hamish).

For anyone local reading this, if you haven’t been to Thurstaston Common nature reserve on the Wirral, it’s well worth a visit.
