Sponsor details to be confirmed.

Si Homfray (photographer) and Ben Carpenter (navigator) spent a whole day covering the Snowdonia National Park from the air. Zig Zagging their way over all the Welsh mountain summits they produced a series of 1500 photographs.  Due to external pressures to fly, perhaps before we were ready, for the most part the mountains were moody, misty and possibly even malevolent. Unlike the picture postcard series for the Lakes and the Peak District they are interesting and worthy but not uber sunny. Perhaps this is all part of some greater force, but for now it just means we will have to fly again.

Words can't really describe the sheer breadth of beauty of Snowdonia but - '...it is really beautiful and quite different to the other parks when put alongside them from this aerial viewpoint.'

More news to follow as soon as we can...
