'Awaiting The Wind' - Llyn (Lleyn) Peninsula, North Wales

'Awaiting The Wind' - Llyn (Lleyn) Peninsula, North Wales

Awaiting the wind to disperse their seed, billowing clouds of cottongrass on the upland moors are a stunning summer spectacle as they carpet the blanket bogs and heaths with airy, white plumes. They are seen here carpeting Trer Ceiri on the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales against the backdrop of Snowdonia. Although technically a sedge rather than a grass, these herbaceous perennial plants are the county flower of Manchester and an enduring emblem of the wide open spaces and the long fight for the freedom of these wilderness areas.
