It's hard to tell just how steep the mountain was from the video, but here are three snapshots of Ben while we were at mid-climb. And for once Ben is not exaggerating about the drop behind us. It would have been lethal, and I was genuinely fearful for my life.

I did not get an adrenalin rush from it, I got to safety and started trembling worse than when we stopped mid-way for lunch. I am furious with myself even now. No matter how reasonable it seemed to start that first bit of the climb (we assumed the path would be very close. Turned out though that it wasn't, and that after the first few meters of vertical, there was no way back down without a rope or eyes in your feet).

Video is working now too: http://www.vimeo.com/1047024

I'm not so sure about the one with the boats.

Experiment with post processing. Yes, the cloud highlites are awful, clipped to hell, and show perfectly why I need a grad filter.

[edit] I just remembered this was taken on my fujifilm compact, so a grad wouldn't have helped on account of the fact that you can't have a grad.

Went out last weekend around the back-lanes of Conwy. There's some proper wilderness style roads and houses in the middle of nowhere, it was good fun. I got a few shots too:

For me the top two are begging for a model or two and a couple of off camera flashes. Absolutely begging for it.
