BRECON’S MOODY GIANTS
Corn Du, Pen y Fan and Cribyn, Brecon Beacons
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.
