What a wonderful scene, Peter! It is simply divine! The sun was giving you quite a magnificent light show as well to add to the beauty of the land and these breathtaking surroundings. Your composition is most pleasing also, with the delightful flowers in the corner and green stretching out for miles and miles as far as the eye can see. I am in awe of such beauty, and you have certainly captured it flawlessly.
Congratulations on this outstanding delight!
Very best regards from the USA,

Hi Mary Alice, Nice to hear from you again, and thanks again for the praise.
It was about 9:00 in the evening, and I was full of energy, so I went out for a walk, looking for some interesting pics. (My house is in the picture too, just below lower right 'rule of thirds' position, but you probably guessed that by the number of other pics I have from around here). I was kind of hoping for a nice sunset, but didn't really get one. The pink flowers are Rhododendrons, they grow wild there in great quantities!
I've walked up that mountain countless times, I love it. It's so peacful at the top, and such nice views. You can see both Harlech and Criccieth castles, Mount Snowdon, Cnicht, the sea, Porthmadog, and this scene as well. There's also an old 'rock cannon' at the top. (Holes drilled into the rocks which are then used to fire projectiles like a cannon does)
So if you fancy a holiday in Wales........

ah so much better to find this fantastic shot
Hi **Peter* still not sure which one it is :(

Just to right of centre, about one quarter the way up. It shows up in enough detail to compare if you really magnify the photo. Other than that, best clue I can suggest is look at the two google maps, and use the hospital as a landmark. (Sill a rather large building site of the aerial photos, but now built for real at the extreme right of this pic).

Ma chère Isabelle,
Je vous remercie Isabelle tant, mais il faut regarder l'image dans 'zoom' pour le voir. La route de alltwen Ysbyty est également visible [Photo no.28885707] (http://www.panoramio.com/photo/28885707)
Rhododendrons et de bruyère sont très gentils, mais ils ne semblent jamais de croître dans les jardins, que sur les flancs de la montagne. J'ai été ici plusieurs fois, et j'aime toujours de s'asseoir et d'admirer leur point de vue et ne le pensez!
PS, si vous ne pouvez toujours pas trouver, dites-moi et je vais email

Hi Peter there's no running from me me now, I know where you live:)) you're not that far from where I live, waking up to this scene, you just can't beat it, I wake to very much the same, Wales you just can't beat it, for times like this, problem is we take it for granted because we live here, and we shouldn't, lovely photo.

So nice to hear from you, and glad you like it. Thank you! As I said to Mary Alice, Steve, and Isabelle, you are very welcome to pop in if you are passing. Maybe a trip to our Rheilffordd Eryri / Ffestiniog, Yr Wyddfa, Ogwen valley, etc etc. You are right, there are wonderful interesting places on our doorsteps that others would love to see.

Bonsoir Ma chérie Isabelle
Ah vous êtes ici ce soir, je suis heureux! Non, le titre n'a pas changé, mais n'oubliez pas que vous avez une version spéciale de cette photo!

Really an incredible view! I know the nice place :)
I can imagine...

My dear Füsun,
This is the view from up here!.
Of course it does not look green today, because there are no leaves on the trees! It also gives a nice view over Porthmadog. It is possible to sit here and watch trains on three different railways! There used to be another one which ran alaong the base of the cliffs, and up to this mill, but it was closed and lifted a very long time ago.
A quick easy walk for the inhabitants of thise little houses!
