I managed to get a day off work on Friday to make a long weekend as it is a Bank Holiday here on Monday.
The weather forecast was supposed to be sunny so I decided to go for a walk up the Carn mountain here in the Garw valley which is a fair old trek but I figured I had all day to do it in.
I loaded may Mamiya 645/80mm f2.8 with some ilford HP5 and set off in the bright sunshine.
I reached the top in pretty good time only stopping to take 2 images on the way.
As I began to walk across the top the skies darkened and we had an almighty hail show that I managed to half shelter from but still it felt like I had been paint-balling.After about 10 minutes it stopped as quickly as it came and then back to blue skies and bright sunshine …. totally bonkers weather here 🙂
