Corn Du, Pen y Fan and Cribyn, Bre­con Bea­cons

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Discover -

The glacial cirques of the Bre­con Bea­cons are the most stylish and sculp­tural works of the last ice age. But as the pa­parazzi age has taught us, even the most beau­ti­ful stars ben­e­fit from sym­pa­thetic light­ing. Au­tumn brings sun­rise and sun­set into the ac­ces­si­ble por­tion of the day, and at dawn on a clear au­tumn day the faces of Cwm Sere, Cwm Cyn­wyn and Cwm Oergwm – on which so much of the grandeur of Pen y Fan, Cribyn and Fan y Big rests – are lit in bril­liant oblique rays. But it’s in the hour be­fore sun­down, when all that neg­a­tive space is em­pha­sised by lim­it­less shad­ows, that the light most com­ple­ments th­ese most con­tem­pla­tive of moun­tains.
