  1. Some cracking close ups here as usual Graham. I took some similar ones of the cables in the drums myself when I went last, they look really good with a nice wet sheen on them.

  2. The spider hub and the steel cables around the drum are marvellous. It just wouldn’t be right without a covering of Snowdonia rain to add sparkle and reflection. Great set.
