Artist's description:

Snowdonia, mountains, lake and trees.
Snowdon seen from Capel Curig across Llynnau Mymbyr

Yr Wyddfa is the Welsh name for Snowdon, Wales’ highest mountain. It means “prominent place”, from gŵydd and –ma, and the word was often associated with cairns and burial mounds in high places. The mountain is said to be the burial place of a giant called Rhita Gawr, who made his clothes from the facial hair of his slain enemies. A similar ancient story exists in Poland, about a giant called Rittagorus.
Llynnau Mymbyr

Llynnau Mymbyr are two lakes located in Dyffryn Mymbyr, a valley running from the village of Capel Curig towards Snowdon itself. Strictly speaking this is one lake, originally called Llyn Mymbyr, with a maximum depth of 30 feet. About 3/4 mile long in total, a delta has built up midway along the north shore, and this has to all purposes cut the lake in two - hence the plural name.
