Artist's Description

Located in the hills above Blaenau Ffestiniog is the lake of Llyn Cwmorthin,surrounded by the abandoned remains of barracks and houses that once where home to the workers of the slate mines and now an outstanding example of a Welsh slate mine that was abandoned at the turn of the 20th century.
In ever changing weather I think this portrays the grimness yet rugged beauty of the area with the gray slate buildings that housed the workers against the back drop of grey hills and the piles of rejected slate.
The grey menacing sky and the coldness of the water depict just a small insight to how they lived in what must have been extremely harsh conditions.
