Todays weather was set to be superb with wall to wall sunshine so we headed off to South Stack near Holyhead on Anglesey. Here are some stunning photos taken from the car on the way. This one shows Snowdon.

The craggy north eastern side of Y Foel Goch (805m).

The mighty Tryfan.

Zooming in on the top and you can see the Adam and Eve.

The north face of Glyder Fach.

The most amazing sight of the day - Tryfan. The first time I have ever seen it!
