Heavy snowfalls are uncommon in Machynlleth itself, with the rare exception of the 25cm+ dumping that occurred in mid-
December 2010. But less than 10 miles away from town, the mountain road to Llanidloes climbs to the 520m contour - where
it commonly gets completely drifted-up! January 2010 was a classic case and it was fascinating to see how the varying winds
reshaped things over several successive trips. These shots detail snowfall, drifting and the interaction with infrastructure.
Please note that there are lots of snowy mountain shots in the "Mountains" section.
