Parkhouse Hill Snowy Sunset

Parkhouse Hill, perhaps the Peaks only ridge walk? It definitely felt a lot more exposed in the snow especially standing where I was. Close enough to Crib Goch in winter for me! I really didn't enjoy coming down as the snow was too soft and slippy for microspikes and it ended up being an affair of being on my bum trying not to gain momentum otherwise I wouldn't have stopped!


The sunset didn't really happen but truth be told I'm quite happy the total values in the shot with plenty of detail in the shot and contrasting green's just poking through in the valley.
