This photo was taken last week in Snowdonia. High up on the steep slopes, a few trees were clinging to life. The precarious positioning of this one particularly caught my eye. The day was cloudy but occasional patches of light crept through the clouds. I took this photo as one of these patches swept across the mountainside, adding colour to the moss, heather and rock in the foreground. I particularly liked the satisfying symmetry of the diagonals.
