This is a truly spectacular​ place, you can't beat a glacier for landscape photography. Interestingly the Glacier d'Arolla is actually composed of two glaciers, the Glacier du Mont Collon and the Haut Glacier d'Arolla.

One of the three routes to Buttermere, Newlands Pass is a narrow and winding road, at times precipitous. At its highest point, just above Buttermere is a car park which allows easy access onto the surrounding craggs.

The photos below were taken from the South-Western corner of Buttermere. There isn't much in the way of car parking in the area, I had to park in a small lay-by and hike back to the location to get the shots.

Hay Bluff faces North from the east end of the Black Mountains.  There are some amazing views, on a clear day, to the north over the Wye Valley and to the west toward Lord Hereford's Knob (no sniggering at the back).

A simply stunning location that looks even better in snow. The dark and brooding cliffs of Cloqwen y Geifr (the Cliff of the Goat) form a dramatic backdrop to the lake. Remember to check the weather forecast before you go, it can change quickly.
