Snowdon from the Glaslyn estuary

Originally uploaded by pencefn

A week of so back I was in North Wales, based in Porthmadog. One day I walked across The Cob. With minimal wind and relatively clear skys this view of Snowdon reflected in the water presented itself.

This inland side of The Cob is known as Traeth Mawr. It was formed when the Afon Glaslyn was dammed by the construction of The Cob in the early 19th Century. Depending on the tide conditons and the amount of rain, the water level here can vary. To the right centre of the picture is where the Glaslyn comes down from Beddgelert, having gone through Aberglaslyn Pass.
