Awesome shots, love the last one in particular! Am I right in thinking that there is a timetable published of sorts? How guaranteed are aircraft to turn up on the day? Guess you have to be prepared to walk a fair distance and sit patiently all day?

Sorry mate no timetable, well there is but it's nothing to go by, and it can be a 20 to 45 minute climb depending on how high you go, it's quite steep not an easy climb (for me), loose rocks and boggy in places, can be very windy up there and temperatures and light can change quickly. Regarding air traffic can be from nothing to poss 10-12 passes on a good day, but I love it.

Thanks for your comments

Bob

We are about 300ft above the bottom of the valley which is about as low as an F15 will go through this area. We often get a wave from the navigator or as in #1 he is filming us.

Thanks again for your comments.

Bob.

What a great set, love them all. Well done Bob!.............Would like to get there sometime this Summer, could you please provide me with an exact location in Snowdonia National Park.......Also noticed your from Bristol, don't forget the 2015 Pro-National Motorcross event at Weston Super Mare this coming weekend. Lots of opportunities for photographers to get some smashing shots.
