Throughout advent, we’re sharing some of our favourite entries to Earth Science Week photography competitions past and present – all of which feature the beautiful geology of the UK and Ireland. Check back each day for a new image!
A 100 Great Geosites nomination from the Geological Society’s President, David Shilston. I discovered the hidden and diverse delights of this valley and its route up/down Snowdon only a few years ago. It has so many interesting features – geology, history, politics and ecology.
A 100 Great Geosites nomination from Dr. Catherine Duigan. Every year I bring students from Bangor University on a fieldtrip to Cwm Idwal in Snowdonia. It is always a thrill to tell them they are walking in the footsteps of Charles Darwin who came here to learn geology before he embarked on The Beagle.
