Cwm Idwal - Easter 1959
Looking into the cwm from just above Llyn Idwal, with the Devil's Kitchen [Twyll Du] prominent to the left of centre. Interesting that there seems to have been much more erosion just beyond the lake than seems to be present now - see, for example, Nigels Homer's picture from 2006 for comparison SH6459 : Llyn Idwal and the Devil's Kitchen.
