Glacially-derived boulders
Glacially-derived boulders
The foot of the steep slope of Pen y Bedw is littered with large, angular boulders that were dropped by the waning glacier at the end of the last glacial maximum. The picture has warm tones from dying bracken which is finally loosening its grip on the countryside now that the nights are cold.
