Snowdonia

Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, United Kingdom.

There is something about rounded, weathered mountains that gets me in a whole different way than the sharp-edged ridges that spike through so much of the American West. I love them both, but in different ways. Tall, sharp mountains bask in youth and power and massive, intimidating size. But these mountains speak of age, wisdom, and experience with powerful erosion forces that we puny, short-lived humans can barely comprehend.

The water running through the bottom of the frame is, of course, the most powerful thing in the image. The mountains only look like they’re in charge.
