On the weekend, Mr G and I put hot drinks in flasks, packed a blanket and went up to the Brecon Beacons National Park for a drive. It's only 40 minutes away from our house and has some stunning scenery at the best of times; even more so when it's sprinkled with snow.

I took some photos, which I think are rather pretty.













And that is all I have to say on the matter of frozen precipitation in the South Wales area.

Wow, that is insanely gorgeous! Yay, you for taking the trip - and bringing back photos :) National parks are always a good idea. I hope your car was warm, at least.

The car was very warm. We had a flask of hot beverage each and I had a blanket tucked around my knees. I felt like I was about 80!

I also fell flat on my arse after taking the pictures of the ice after a guy that was walking too pointed up at the RAF helicopter circling overhead and I tipped my head up and spilled over backwards. Worth it though. I think the pictures are pretty lovely :)

Blankets are such a good idea! I should totally keep one in my car.

Ice is cruel like that. If it makes you feel any better, I slip on ice every chance I get. Thank goodness for asses, that's what I say! Those pics really are amazing. I try to do the national park picture thing too, and yours are totally some of the best I've seen. Nice job!!!

My ass is amply padded for a fall, so thankfully there was no harm done.

Thanks for the kind words on the pictures. I was really pleased with how they came out.

Oh god - so pretty!

You're so lucky to have that right on your doorstep.

I know, right? We're very lucky to live where we do. It would be a crime not to take advantage of it when it's got its pretty white frock on :D

p.s. I think I just came in my pants at your icon. Thanks for that...

Totally! I wish we had something like that. As it is we have to content ourselves with watching the cat leap around like a madun.

*nods sagely* Ah yes. Mishas mouth tends to have that affect on people. He has a glorious pair of lips. And a pretty glorious everything else too IMO.

Monty's been wailing this morning because I won't let him out. He went out in the freezing cold on Sunday night and didn't come home for two days. He's not going out again just yet *nods resolutely*

I know nothing of the Mischa, but I know a pair of cocksucking beautiful lips when I see them.

Oh god - yeah I think that's a good plan! Mister just dives around like a nutcase and then comes barelling in as soon as the water hits his skin. I caught him burrowing under some snow this morning - I have no idea what for.

Best description of his mouth ever.

I think the stubble helps. It frames them perfectly and just makes the whole thing look more...guh.

It does frame nicely. A bit like this:

I think maybe hotlinking is disabled. Here, try this:

Totally worth the wait.

You know what I love about that picture? That you can see his teeth aren't perfect. There seems to be this think in hollywood where all the actors teeth have to be straight and neat and perfect. I like that he has a little gap there.

*looks again* Dear lord he looks wanton in that picture.

I love that photoshoot. There is no attempt made to conceal the fact he has laughter lines around his eyes or scars on his cheeks from teenage acne. And his lips are a little chapped. I love people's imperfections. We are all made up of our flaws. It's what makes us unique and interesting. And I am very interested in looking at that little set of idiosyncracies.

And yes, he looks like he's having the filthiest of thoughts. Dayum.

*nods* It's not so bad over here. We don't tend to do quite so much airbrushing as the Americans do on their press releases and so on.

I agree that it's the flaws that make you interesting. I like a lined face because you can see the life that persons lead in them. I find scars quite interesting. Theres always a story. For instance: I've got a dimple on only one cheek. Ran into a table when I was little and deadened the area of muscle so when I smile there it is on only the right hand side.
