'Valley Of The Water' The shot I am most proud of since becoming interested in photography a couple of years ago. Thank you to Matt (@antiatlas) for standing on the foreground ridge in gale force winds for this one, also a huge thank you to my followers for the support over the last year. I am already looking forward to sharing better images in 2016. #myadvofyear #myadvofyearinstagram #lakedistrict #truemountainstories #britains_talent #photosofengland #photosofbritain #lovegreatbritain #ukpotd #landscape_captures #ok_europe #rural_love #natureaddict #bbctravel #natgeolandscape #nakedplanet #epic_captures #wildernessculture #welcometonature #jaw_dropping_shots #awesomeearth #worldshotz #allshotz_ #hot_shotz #beautifulplaces #special_shots #travelstoke #instagoodmyphoto #hikingculture #welivetoexplore

I’m a Welshman born and raised in the shadow of Snowdonia, and you could say the Mountains are in my blood with a name like Tryfan! I would class myself as a relative newcomer to the outdoor pursuits arena, and so my articles will be my attempt to chronicle my adventures, hopefully learning as I go and giving those that are in a similar boat an insight / forum to share and learn.
