Just round the corner from The Peak District National Park…sort of! This is a photo of a mountain road in Wales. The Pass of Llanberis runs through the mountains providing a spectacular view, and runs past Mt Snowdon

To take the photo, I scrambled up the side of the mountain to get a decent view, and also to get me off the road! And I used a 200mm lens, which helps give that kind of aerial view.

I was on a bike and it can be a bit scary as there is no hard shoulder that cyclists can use, so traffic comes round a sharp bend and sees a cyclist in front of them….I especially hated the tourist busses and lorries because you could hear them a mile off, but they took forever to reach you, so you are forever looking over your shoulder!

  • This would be a pretty cool landscape to cycle through. The traffic would be the only drawback. I am always surprised at how amazing the landscape in the UK is when I see images like this.

  • Wow – what a breathtaking view, it looks absolutely stunning. I love the atmosphere created by the dark clouds and dramatic sky. Bravo!

  • Fabulous shot, lovely editing and composition. Have a great festive season and look forward to some more beautiful photos in 2014.
    cheers

  • You do amazing work. I am in awe of your work. Amazing gallery. Both your color images and your black and white just shine!

  • This is so beautiful!! I really love your photos!!

    plus, i feel with you as i’ve had similar experiences while cycling !!!

  • Thank you for braving the traffic on the road with your bike as well as climbing the hill to capture this superb image of the pass Tony….peter:)

  • Wonderful landscape shot – as were your Peak District shots. I keep telling myself that I must get out into the park (I live in Sheffield!) to get some pictures – will definitely try to do so this winter!

  • Superb treatment for this instantly recognisable (for a Welsh boy) vista – Please tell me you stopped an took on sustenance at famous Pete’s Eats in Llanberis
