Stunning Snowdon sunrise and temperature inversion

December 20, 2021  •  1 Comment

 Snowdonia at it's most stunning today... set the alarm for 4.00am as the weather had forecast the chance of a temperature inversion and having never seen one before from Snowdon summit I didn't want to miss the chance. It was a 2 hr trek in the dark up the Pyg Track from Pen Y Pass and all the time I could see the approaching cloud getting closer and closer to the Snowdonia peaks.... it definitely looked promising! I reached the top of the Pyg Track and headed towards Crib Goch to search for the best viewpoint to catch the rising sun next to Snowdon and what now had become an amazing cloud inversion, truly Mother Nature at her best. I took several photos of the sunrise and then headed up to Snowdon summit itself where I had the summit pillar all to myself so chance to setup the tripod and take a couple of photos of the summit pillar and the amazing backdrop of the cloud inversion. Views across to Crib Goch were equally as impressive, the clouds almost like waves lapping on the shore, occasionally streaming over the ridge. I real day to remember, my first cloud inversion on snowdon summit and a stunning sunrise to match it.
