...to be greeted by overcast skies and a fairly
calm sea. At least the visibility seemed
reasonable. This was looking NW towards the Llyn
Shades of grey anyone?
This was looking SW, at the approaching trough -
Eventually it started to show a bit more
....and later still as it came much closer a long
gust-front developed. At this point there was a
single bright lightning-strike into the sea - the
only electrical activity this storm produced...
The main precipitation core was now due W so that
it would miss me to my N......
...and looking SW a little later with the
gust-front about to come ashore. This shot is
quite pleasing as you can actually see the
disturbance on the sea surface - exactly what the
name means - a front along which gusty winds
much occurred then until the very thundery 21st
which gets its own page! On the 10th there were
some occasionally spectacular high-level cloud
formations - here photographed from Moel
Hafod-Owen in the Coed Y Brenin Forest....
.....and at times there were some tidy sunsets,
like this one over the Dyfi Estuary from just
one from the Frongoch Boatyard, a few miles up
which it was gathering-time..... firewood,
mushrooms - it's been an excellent season! These
I chop up and fry in garlic butter then freeze
down in their own liquid for gastronomic moments
in the depths of Winter!
