The landscapes of the Cambrian Mountains are breathtaking, not so much for the raw natural beauty that is so striking in more mountainous areas, but for the wide horizons, the sense of space, and for the wild hill scenery gently rolling into the distance. It is almost impossible to capture the essence of these places in an ordinary photograph, so here is a small library of panoramas.
N.B. To view the panoramas, you need a program called Adobe Flash Player. If they don’t work at the first attempt, you probably haven’t got the program, but it’s easy to install. Click here to find out more.
Unfortunately, Flash doesn’t work on Apple or Android mobile devices.
