Hiraeth – Mighty Mount Snowdon


The majestic and mighty Mount Snowdon. I like to think that the cloud to the left is the ghost of a dragon returning home. Mountains are so capricious, the light twists and turns. They have a life of their own.

I love North Wales with a cherry on top.  It is a land of extremes.  Here you will find mountains, lakes, sea, fields, sky all in the same spot.  It is like a splurge of everything that is lovely about the world.

If you listen carefully you will often hear many a Welsh man (and woman) whisper of something know as Hiraeth. It has no direct English translation but is sort of like a longing, nostalgia and wistful yearning for Wales.   This series is my own way of embracing my feelings of hiraeth and sharing just a little bit of my magical Wales with you.

If you feel your own hiraeth welling up inside and fancy a bit of Wales on your walls then why not pop on over to my Etsy shop to see what you can find?
