Drosgl Cairns (Cairn(s)) by GLADMAN Archive print looking across to Yr Elen (near right), Carnedd Llewleyn (centre right) and Foel Grach (left).... needless to say this is the view the cairn builders did NOT want. Oh no, it was the Menai Straits for them.

The people at work would probably laugh if you called me 'moody'.. 'muppet' would probably be more apt. Needless to say I don't agree , but lucky, I guess, that Mr Cope stakes up the readies to keep resources like TMA going where people like us can express our wonder at humanity.

Take Drosgl, for example. Why would people living in the valleys below cite this as sacred place? Why indeed. I think I know, but struggle to communicate it.

I think I know what you mean Gladman and your photographs always communicate the atmosphere of the place (which is what I meant by 'moody'). There is something elemental out there that is almost impossible to put into words ... like when a damp, grey mist lifts suddenly revealing a blue-bright windy day. I experienced it on Orkney and again just last Sunday - much closer to home in Wiltshire. tjj Posted by tjj
