Anglesey & Snowdonia, North Wales

Crimpiau, Capel Curig, Snowdonia (Ep #133)

Mar 19, 2020


At last, I am back in the mountains of Snowdonia for some landscape photography. In this video I take a short easy hike from the North Wales village of Capel Curig to the summit of Crimpiau. This is, by Snowdonia standards, a very low peak at only 475 m. But its strategic position and ease of access is a perfect location for landscape photographers to get panoramic views across the whole of the northern Snowdonia ranges. For those less mobile or worried about the dangers of hiking to the high ridges, this is a great introduction to hiking in Snowdonia and still gives you a good flavour of how it feels to reach the summit of a mountain and enjoy sweeping views.

I’m often asked about the equipment I use

Having typed-up countless replies I've now set it all out definitively here:


So sorry, but the images from this video have now been archived. As they're large high-res files, I do have to remove them after a while to keep the site running smoothly. I only leave images up from the most recent few videos in these vlog pages.

Only my best images (compressed) are shown on my PORTFOLIO page. A wider selection of my better images are in full resolution on FLICKR
