Mount Snowdon Walk via Crib Goch Ridge Route, Snowdonia. The tallest mountain in Wales.

Possibly the best ridge walk in the UK

Crib Goch ridge, Snowdon walk, Mount Snowdon Horsehoe walk, via crib Goch Route, Pyg Track
My best photo of the the day - A walker on the Crib Goch ridge. You can just make out the summit of Mount Snowdon where the clouds have cleared a little just to the right of the walker, and further to the right is the summit of Garnedd Ugain.

Looking along the Crib Goch ridge to Garnedd Ugain on the Mount Snowdon walk. The Crib Goch section of the walk is definitely the best and most exhilarating ridge route I've done in the UK to date.

Due to the growing popularity of my blog amongst outdoor enthusiasts I am going to start providing the odd review of gear that I myself (and no doubt others too) will find useful out and about taking photos on hikes & wild camps.

An ideal, cost effective one-man tent for wild camping - the Vango Force Ten Helium 100 Tent

Goathland Waterfall Walk, Mallyan Spout & Goathland Station, North Yorkshire Walks, (Near Whitby)

One of the best walks in North Yorkshire: Goathland Waterfall Walk & Mallyan Spout, also taking in Goathland Station on the Moors Railway and the village setting for the TV Programme, Heartbeat. A beautiful village on the North York Moors near Whitby
The route of one of the best walks in North Yorkshire - the Goathland Waterfall walk, taking in Mallyan Spout Waterfall, Beck Hole and Goathland Station. Once you get to Beck Hole - you could venture up the path to see Thomason Foss, but once you get to the waterfall there is no through route so you would have to come back to Beck Hole to continue the walk.



My Hometown Hartlepool in the Snow

I'm from Hartlepool (a Monkey Hanger apparently is what people often call me on my travels). I'm proud of the place I live and I happen to think there are some great places for landscape photography in Hartlepool if you seek them out!

After waking one cold January morning there was a lot of snow on the ground, but bright blue skies - so I thought I would zip around town and take some photos of some of my favourite spots in a different light!
