Vanoord's Surface Wanderings

An evening trip on 18th July to Dinorwig to try out a new camera. I arrived an hour or so too late and spent a while climbing upwards trying to chase the remaining sunlight up the hill. A few shots after sunset preceded the interesting task of coming back down in the dark.

Additional pics added - taken on 22nd August after an evening climbing: I found myself with a fabulous sunset behind a drumhouse - and, thankfully, a camera.

Third set of photographs added May 2009, a new lens this time!
