Long winter shadows on the fields and cloud inversions are a frequent sight on the Garth mountain and in the Taf valley. I see them as I go up to the stables in the morning. These photos were taken in early January.
Later that day, at about one o’clock after mucking out and riding, this appeared.
A month later, in early February, the cloud inversion along the Taf valley was thick and woolly below, and the sun bright looking west to Mynydd Eglwysilan: I stopped on the lane above Dryscoed, and the cloud curls up the valley past Pontypridd in the background.
This is more southerly, over Mynydd Meio.
The clouds smothered Coed-y-Gedrys below the farm.
This is the view over Coed-y-Gedrys without cloud, with my horse sharing a happy moment with my other favourite companion.
