3 Peaks Training - Eglwysilan

I wrote in my last posting that I had signed up for the Tenovus 3 Peaks Challenge which about 40 of us at work have signed up for. I'm one of un-fittest of the people who signed up so I've got a real challenge to get fit, and one of the things I'm doing is not stinting on getting up hills and talking camera equipment with me

Last time I wrote about a spectacular  walk in the Brecon Beacons, but I can't always afford the time to drive that far so today I  worked out a route from almost sea level to one of the highest local hills Eglwysilan Mountain

Starting from Upper Boat and heading right up to the summit I was afforded some fine views, and an opportunity to get the justaposition of wonderful landscapes and modern structures

Noormally like most landscape Photographers I'm going out of my way to get these type of things out of my pictures. But for once here they are

Phone lines going into Senghennydd


Power lines topping the skyline


And getting reflected in the pools


The Brecon Beacons in the distance 


After these pictures it bcame hazy and the sky went white which is the bane of all landscape photographs so I increased my speed and headed home

It is nice to be up here again though. I haven't been here since I was Working A Sunset

Another  6.5 miles and 1200 ft climbing for the training
