As Helen as asked, I am starting a new thread on Where's The Picture? - Wales.

I'll see if I can get closer than Nathan!, if only to set the ball rolling...

Is it in the Moelwyns? Might it be Llyn yr Adar?

I'll throw in a clue....It's a stone throw away from a summit.

Must be a Moelwyn then... I'll try for Llyn Coch below Moel Druman? (If it is, then you'd need that hard frost to be able to pitch a tent though!).

Although it might even be Llyn y Fign with Cadair behind?? Two guesses there, sorry!

After closer scrutiny and my poor first guess I think that's Cadair in the background as well so I tend to agree with Llyn y Fign.

Actually I've changed my mind as the ground in the immediate left background is rising so iots hard to see how it can be Llyn y Fign, so instead I'm going for Llyn Pen Aran as I still think its Cadair in the background.

It is Llyn Pen Aran, near to Aran Benllyn's summit, looking west from the ridge path, so I don't think it can be Cadair Idris to the lhs of picture, as CI would be the same direction as the summit basically, a 45 deg angle to my left.
