- The photos in these albums are mainly taken from on or near the Cambrian Way Main Route, or Optional Routes as indicated and are arranged roughly in order of position along the route, though optional routes are often inserted into the sequence and there may be a few discrepancies elsewhere.
- Although the photos shown are mainly taken in fair or good weather conditions, it should be remembered that mountain areas have much more rainfall than other parts of Wales as well as stronger winds, more mist and lower temperatures with a greater chance of snow and ice. Hence when planning a walk this should be taken into account when considering clothing and other equipment that may be required.
- When visibility is severely restricted by mist, rain or snow, route finding is much more challenging and needs good navigational skills, possibly aided by GPS.
- Although much of the route can be walked at any time of year, it is not recommended for winter walks to be planned in the higher and more rugged mountains such as those in Snowdonia. In these mountains, walking should only be undertaken when the latest mountain weather information shows conditions to be suitable. Appropriate clothing and equipment for the conditions, allowing for possible worsening conditions (see Planning a Walk on the Route page).
- In the right conditions, walks in the winter can be very rewarding, with snow on the mountains and often clearer distant views without the haze that is common in warm weather. To illustrate this, a number of photos from day walks in winter have been included with a special section from a walk to Snowdon Summit and back from Pen y Pass in the snow (Stage 19A).
- Image sizes have been reduced to approximately 800px wide by 600px high in order to avoid excessive download time with slow internet or network speeds.
- To maximise the viewing size of pictures on small screens the arrangement of headings, buttons and thumbnails adjusts to the viewing area on the screen and changes as the screen is changed between portrait and landscape.
- On screens in landscape mode some of the image may be lost at the bottom of the screen but the full page can be seen by either dragging the page upwards or by clicking the 'Fullscreen Mode' button.
- On large screens, the display adjusts to fit the window as much as possible. This means that the images are enlarged to more than their original size and therefore will not be very sharp on close inspection.
- The copyright of these photos belongs to the photographers whose names are indicated, the remainder to George Tod. However, these may be used by anyone for non-commercial purposes provided a credit is given to the photographer. The use of photographs for Educational or Charitable purposes is also permitted as well as for anything that promotes the Cambrian Way or promotes Wales or Welsh businesses.
- High Resolution Copies of any of the photos can be obtained by contacting the webmaster at the e-mail address below. Please note that some of the photos are not as sharp as would be desired and this can often be seen in the reduced size copies. In that case the higher resolution copies may not give much improvement.
- Copies of some of the photos are available for download at medium resolution (1600px wide) from the Photo page.
