A Storm over Snowdon

This simple looking image is the result of lots of hard work – it’s crafted from a set of images stitched together.

This might be because of the effort involved in building it and the knowledge this has so much potential to print really big.

Years later, on the edge of a storm and alone, this visit felt like wandering through a wonderful and abandoned gothic film set.
