Photography Trip to Snowdonia

Snowdonia National Park is located in North Wales in the UK and is one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited. As a photographer, I found it a long process to get from one place to another because every layby or place to pull over offers a beautiful view. Every sideroad could lead to another stunning view and possibly spending quite a while in reverse gear.

Some offer closed views of where the mountains and forests meet the water’s edge. This was the view from the youth hostel I was staying in.
