Sunset on Pen y Fan, Brecon Beacons

It’s been awhile since I’ve managed to get some good pictures while on the Brecon Beacons. I’ve put the odd one on Instagram but apart from not having the opportunity to get on the hills as much as I’d like, there just haven’t been many pictures presenting themselves.

“The best times to be sat on top of a mountain are always the most challenging times, as the sun sets or as it rises.”

Wednesday Afternoon I set off to Brecon to try and capture the sunset from the top of Pen y Fan, I left Hereford around 5pm and managed to make it to the Storey Arms car park by 6:15pm. I wanted to get straight up and check out different locations before the sunset at 8pm so I thought the route straight up from Storey Arms would be the best option.

I ended up sitting around the top of Pen y Fan for about an hour before the sun started to set, not a bad place to enjoy the view for an hour but my fingers started to get cold after a while. It was an incredible day, temperature setting off was around 16˚ and around 8˚ on the top. The wait was well worth it, these are a bunch of pictures I picked out and edited.
