From sunrise to (almost) sunset, a perfect winters day hiking over the Glyderau earlier this week. Photo taken from Llyn Cwmffynnon at the foot of Glyder Fawr looking towards the mighty Snowdon. There is something magical about the Welsh mountains ⛰ #snowdonia #visitwales #photography #northwales #northwalestagram #discovercymru #mountains #hiking #landscapephotography #explorewales #ukhikingofficial #thewalescollective #walesshots #wanderlust #wanderlustwales #realwales #walkinguk #snowdoniagram #sony #ukshots #snowdon #naturephotography #skyscape #clouds #naturelovers #gooutside #headspace #beautiful #exploringwales
An atmospheric morning at Llangorse Lake before the weather turned for the worse. Believe it or not this was my first visit there; the entire place was flooded and I got lake water in my boots... suppose it isn't an adventure unless you're soaking wet, covered in mud and having your whole car smell of damp spaniel.

I’ve owned a lot of jackets in my time. I currently have two North Face, a Sprayway, an OEX, an O’Neill and a Helly Hansen. All claim to be water tight. All leak somewhere or after prolonged rain. Zips, seams, pockets!! I bought this Regatta jacket as a back up. It’s been out on 5 or 10 hikes, warm, dry, no issues. Yesterday I hit Pen Y Fan at 8am and then walked across the Malverns from around 2pm. was out in minus temps, 40+ winds and sideways freezing rain all day. This £60 coat kept me bone dry from start to finish. Wind tight, water tight. Can’t fault the little hero! Only down side, it’s not quite as breathable as I’d like, but I am a sweaty beast. Well played Regatta, well played... . . . #Hills #Mountains #Hiking #Walking #Trekking #GetOutdoors #GetOutside #LifeHappensOutdoors #TheGreatOutdoors #HikerList #UKWanderLust #HikingKids #WanderLustWales #TheWalesCollective #JuliasWalks #UKHikers #GloriousBritain #WalesShots #iGOutdoors #MountainFamily #RegattaOutdoors #PenYFan #MalvernHills
An image I took while on holiday of Borth-y-Gest in North Wales. A stunning little fishing village which I've never explored till now, little coves along the coastline with amazing clean sand and crystal clear water. . . 📷 Panasonic Fz1000, K&F concept tripod and cokin nuances 10stop filter. . . . #jessopsmoment #lovewales #bridgecamera #UK_shots #photooftheday #visitwales #walesshots #wales #thewalescollective #panasonicfz1000 #cameracentreuk #discovercymru #unlimitedwales #walesneverfails #wewalkaround #Borth -y-Gest #longexposure_shots #landscapelovers #wanderlustwales #walesonline #wonderfulwales #the_incredible_Britain #exploringwales #igerswales #imagesofwales #gwladgwlad #nationalparksuk #lovenorthwales
I called in to, and up, The Worcestershire Beacon in Malvern on the way back from Pen Y Fan today. The conditions on the Beacon summit were shite. Rain was freezing, verglas on all exposed surfaces. The Topograph looks wet, it’s not, it’s all iced up. Had to help a couple off the rocks because they had gotten stuck and just sat down. It was around -4 and 40+ gusts up there!! Most of the main paths up the beacon were frozen or freezing. It will be worse tomorrow, if you are heading up there, be sensible, be safe... . . . #Hills #Mountains #Hiking #Walking #Trekking #GetOutdoors #GetOutside #LifeHappensOutdoors #TheGreatOutdoors #HikerList #JuliasWalks #UKHikers #GloriousBritain #WalesShots #iGOutdoors #MountainFamily #Malvern #MalvernHills
This is the look of a man who isn’t sure whether his waterproof trousers are leaking or whether he’s pissed himself... . . . #Hills #Mountains #Hiking #Walking #Trekking #GetOutdoors #GetOutside #LifeHappensOutdoors #TheGreatOutdoors #HikerList #UKWanderLust #HikingKids #WanderLust #UKHikers #GloriousBritain #WalesShots #iGOutdoors #MountainFamily
@matthew_pate a.k.a Matt taking in the views over the Ogwen valley, dwarfed by the mighty Pen Y Ole Wen. - Great to meet up with likeminded people and we had a laugh as we headed up to Y Gribin to shoot sunset (even though the light didn't want to play ball) - Go and check out Matt's page for his awesome shot of the evening and many more. @matthew_pate - After a good evening shooting we headed back to the cars before Matt headed home and I made my way back up the ridge with the tent for a night of astrophotography. Photo's to follow. - - #uk_wildcamp #walesshots #visitcymru #visitwales #snowdoniapics #glyderau #snowdonianationalpark #walesadventure #moodygrams #serialshooters #sony #ig_color #ig_europa #findyourwhy #findyourepic #britains_talent #UKpotd #uk_greatshots #ukhikers #britainsbreathingspaces #greatoutdoors #loves_united_europe #keepitwild #image #riseviews #VisualsOfEarth #planetearth #hiking
Awesome evening view from Crib y ddysgl one of my favourite places to while away the time and look down on the world below. . It’s name translates to “ridge of the dish” and refers to the bowl shaped cwm of the snowdon horseshoe a classic route in summer - even better with it’s winter coat on 👍
Great shot from @marks_outside of malham tarn at sunrise 🌅
Looking over towards Glyder Fach from Y Gribin............ Met up with @uk_wildcamp for sunset, hoping for some light to hit Tryfan. Unfortunately the light had other plans!! We still had an awesome walk on the ridge. @uk_wildcamp stayed on for some astrophotography, looking forward to seeing what he gets!! . . . #discovercymru #discoverwales #scenicbritain #snowdonia #snowdoniapics #snowdoniagram #ukshots #findyourepic #wanderlustwales #visitwales #ygribin #ogwenvalley #snowdonianationalpark #cymru #wales #walesshots #moon #thewalescollective #mountains #beautifulwales #ournorthwales #lumixg80 #genuinebritain #unlimitedwales
Hey girls I’ve been thinking about doing something for couple of months but couldn’t quite figure it out ... after a few hobnobs this morning and dwelling on a post I read earlier, I think I have a plan!. . I was out with my mate yesterday; we went for a walk, chewed each other’s ears off, had a laugh and I think we all need days like this 😊 ... so here’s the idea; we’re an adventurous bunch of women on here so how about we plan a get together in the new year? A weekend where we can let our hair down, make new friends, go walking, maybe plan a camp ... it would be a great opportunity to put a real face to the little IG square we follow and hopefully build up a friendship group, any thoughts?. . As you know I’m in Snowdonia but over the months we could plan meet ups all over the country, explore new areas, support each other and generally have a bit of fun ... sorry guys, girls only for this one ❤️
Llyn Idwal is named after a young man who died a tragic and unnecessary death. Legend has it that Idwal was the son of the 12th century prince Owain Gwynedd. Beautiful and scholarly, Idwal did not have the makings of a warrior and was sent away to stay in safety with his uncle, Nefydd, while his father was at war. . Nefydd was a jealous man whose own son Rhun, in contrast to Idwal, was witless and dull. . Torn apart by bitterness, Nefydd took the boys for a walk by the lake and pushed Idwal in, laughing at the young man as he drowned. Owain was devastated and banished Nefydd from his lands. He then named the lake after his son. . Legend has it that the birds that inhabited the lake flew away in sorrow at the terrible deed done there and you’ll never see a bird fly over Llyn Idwal 😔 ... until this ‘bird’ came along 😉 I’m flying into the weekend guys, hope you have a fab one 👍🏻
Instagram really kills letterbox cropped images, but this photo didn't look right without it. Does anyone else get that? You take a photo, immediately dislike it and then crop it one way or another and suddenly it's better!
Playing in our favourite playground today 😊
It’s International Mountain Day. We need to teach the next generation that the mountains, the wilderness, the outdoors hold more health, wealth and education than a TV or phone screen. A child’s right to roam is increasingly becoming less and less as the years pass. I hear stories of parents not wanting their children to get dirty, wet and cold. If our children are not taught to love, respect and use our outdoors spaces then their children will not have these natural facilities available to them. Yes, school is important, but on a hill you can learn about the environment, geography, geology, science, history, mythology, botany, meteorology and biology. On top of that, survival skills, cooking, map reading, and the dying art of spending quality time with family and friends. Not all class rooms have four walls. Get your halflings off the sofa and into the outside. Raise outdoor kids... . . . #Hills #Mountains #Hiking #Walking #Trekking #GetOutdoors #GetOutside #LifeHappensOutdoors #TheGreatOutdoors #HikerList #UKWanderLust #HikingKids #WanderLustWales #DiscoverNorthWales #TheWalesCollective #JuliasWalks #UKHikers #OurNorthWales #SnowdoniaGram #Snowdonia #GloriousBritain #WalesShots #InternationalMountainDay #MountainsMatter
Golden hour at snowdonia fantastic capture ~ 📸: @me.photographics
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿⛰️👣 ======================================= Tryfans South face looking pretty exquisite from the low clouds of the Glyderau. 📸 Taken from Bristly Ridge a few months back during golden hour. This has to be one of my favourite mountains I've climbed. Nowhere near the highest or hardest mountain but still a cracking day of scrambling in all weather! Who's climbed Tryfan? Let me know what your thoughts are below! 😃 . . . . #landscapephotography #skyporn #landscape_lovers #mountains #mountainlovers #landscape #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #moodygrams #moody_tones #agameoftones #nationalparksuk #wanderlust #unlimitedwales #thegreatoutdoors #northwalestagram #beautifulwales #thewalescollective #thefrozendivide #discovercymru #ournorthwales #exploringwales #visitwales #wanderlustwales #imagesofwales #walesshots #snowdoniapics #snowdoniagram #nationalparksuk #photooftheday
Another camp another great sunset- I spend more time under canvass than in my own home and with scenes like this it’s easy to understand why 👌
Jimmy and puppy.
Still not that time of the year, but. New year resolution, part 1: take surf lessons. (This includes a part 2 that should sounds something like "get used to this weather and accept the fact that 12° is warm", but that's another story) . . . #surf #surfing #surfer #surflife #amazing #waves #wales #nofilter #nofilterneeded #igers #gower #beach #sunlight #sunset #agameoftones #instagrammers #discover #discovercymru #beautifulwales #walesshots #life #livingmybestlife #sunday #mood #huntgram #moodygram
I have lots of thank you’s tonight guys ... I’ve been blown away with all your lovely messages after my latest blog went live ... thank you so much ❤️ I don’t need to tell you how much I love being outside; but sometimes I like to share more than just the face behind the little square. I’m just a normal middle aged woman, with a family and all the ups and downs that go with it and my stories hopefully reflect this. . I went and gave another talk last week; I tend to put all my photos together, add some music and talk about mine and the Beasts adventures. I absolutely love these talks; I started off with a script when I gave my first one but found I’d lose where I was and I was actually quite nervous following a scripted speech. These days I just ‘ad lib’ and find the passion I have takes over (although I should probably have a timer because I do get carried away and could honestly talk for hours!). . At the end of my last talk there was a Q&A session and someone jokingly commented that the Beast and I are mini ambassadors for Snowdonia and I kind of liked that. I’ve made some awesome friends over the years through social media. I love helping with a route, offering tips on where to stay, advising on kit or help on wild camping. I love showcasing how awesome Snowdonia is and how much fun spending time outdoors can be through my little square and possibly inspiring a follower to come for a visit and experience the view for themselves. . The voting for the Go Outdoors Awards for Best Outdoor Blog 2018 closes tomorrow, a huge thank you to everyone who has taken the time to vote ... if you’ve got a few minutes and like our stories and photos then please take the time to add your vote, it really would mean the world to us both (link in bio ⬆️) ❤️🐶 xx
New favourite Welsh spot, no doubt. (Thanks to the man on top that offered me some hot tea when he realized I was freezing but I didn't want to leave). . . . . #wales #discover #DiscoverCymru #cymru #walesshots #walescollective #visitwales #findyourepic #imagesofwales #beautifulwales #igerswales #igersuk #igers #sunday #sundaymood #amazing #sunset #love #nofilterneeded #tones #instagrammers #instagram #photo #photooftheday
Took this on a little photo meet with @the6millionpman @mister.p.photography @bex_hoodless in Cardiff. We met by Cardiff museum and to our complete surprise we turned up to a fire show as an attraction for a formal event occuring within the museum. Despite not having brought a tripod I still managed to get some nice long exposure shots.

SPOT THE PEOPLE 🔎🧗‍♀️ . does anyone know what this rock face is called? Or even better, has anyone on my Insta been awesome enough to have climbed it!? It's coming down from Pen-Y-Pass heading down to Nant Peris opposite the 1st lay by on the left 🤔 . . #mountains #Snowdonia #rockclimbing #getoutside #snowdonianationalpark #nationalparksuk #adrenaline #adrenalinejunkie #cymru #discovercymru #mountainlove #mountaineering #mountaintop #unlimitedwales #adventuretime #northwales #northwalestagram #wales #thewalescollective #challengeyourself #walesshots
Just a little something while I'm waiting for the rain and wind to calm down before I venture out. This was taken on a misty morning at the upper Neuadd in the Brecon Beacons looking towards Pen Y Fan. . . . 📷 Panasonic Fz1000 . . . #jessopsmoment #lovewales #bridgecamera #UK_shots #photooftheday #visitwales #walesshots #wales #thewalescollective #Panasonicfz1000 #cameracentreuk #discovercymru #unlimitedwales #walesneverfails #wewalkaround #visitsouthwales #longexposure_shots #landscapelovers #wanderlustwales #walesonline #wonderfulwales #the_incredible_Britain #exploringwales #igerswales #imagesofwales #gwladgwlad #nationalparksuk #raw_alltrees
The coastal path leading Cymtydu to New Quay. Although you can't see in the photo, Snowdon and Cadair Idris are clearly visible a little further along the path from a lookout point!
