Yesterday was such a hot sunny day here in my North Wales Village, but a few miles away and for most of the local area it was a really foggy day, driving over the Horseshoe Pass, it was sunset when this scene came into view, it took my breath away, I just had to stop to capture the moment.

These pictures show just how my village was so lucky to be bathed in sunshine we are way up above all that fog!

The road home at sunset!

Thought I would share my magic moment with you.

A magic moment indeed! Doesn't the mist in the valley look like water? There are times when living on the bleaker uplands has its compensations!
