I am having a very peaceful new year thanks. Hope you're all having a good one too. This is an estuary in Snowdonia by the way.

There's a beautiful timelessness to these that makes them perfect for New Year's Day, a moment's pause as time hurtles us ahead. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you too Factotum and Spiderbaby. Finding some peace and a pause has been the theme of my festivities this year.

I gasped. It's beautiful.

Really Geo? I have so many similar snaps, I guess I forget how beautiful Snowdonia is.

They were taken whilst crossing the Glaslyn estuary by narrow gauge train. The one Caine likes was on the way back (from Porthmadog towards Blaenau Ffestiniog), looking inland. The top one is looking out towards the sea.

Geodyne says:

Honestly, I actually gasped at how beautiful it is when I first saw the shot. I think I know just where you mean.

I tend not to get that far north - I'm in love with the area around Barmouth and Dolgellau, but there are definitely plans afoot to cycle in that area this coming summer. Your shot has made me all the more enthusiastic!

And I don't tend to venture that far south all that often...we often visit the Llyn peninsula as we have friends there.

We walked up Cadair Idris in the summer, which was magic - the view was amazing. So I can see why you like that area. Good luck with cycling around there, it's challenging to say the least.

edit: In fact these chips were consumed in Barmouth :)

Somehow I missed the chips post!

We're seriously considering trying to buy a fixer-upper cottage in the Dollgellau area, so we go there from time to time. The cycling between there and Barmouth is rather flatter than the rest of the area, and very pretty along the estuary as well..I do recommend it!

a touch of the fjords : )
The only time I went to Snowdonia it poured, for the whole week. Was great fun, remember doing the Morecombe and Wise dance on the way back from the pub to the Llanberis Youth Hostel. I loved the sixth form ; )
Hope you're still in chilled New Year mode

It was pouring down you say? Sounds about right....

The churning cauldron effect is part of the landscape though, it would be wrong without it.
