SH7477 : Heather and scree

taken 7 years ago, near to Capelulo, Conwy, Great Britain

Heather and scree
Heather and scree
Magnificent colour combinations in the heather, scree and rock outcrops of the Sychnant valley. The screes are a relic of late-glacial times when permanent ice had retreated and water no longer flowed in this valley. Instead the rocks suffered attrition from prolonged freeze-thaw action which split the rocks and tumbled fragments down the steep slope.
