OK so the people are difficult to see on that low res post so here is a 100% zoom in.

I guess there is still some life in film if we can see people's legs only a few pixels wide in the original 7500x5000 37.5Mpixel film scan which could be printed at 16x24inches.

You can also just see a line of fence posts (to keep the sheep out) in the middle of this crop.

If its of any interest it is in Britain's first National Nature Reserve (Cwm Idwal) and this is also where Darwin formulated some of his theory. The are two 'wrecks' in the Llyn, a fishing punt and a rowing boat reputed to have been carried up by quarrymen so that Lord Penrhyn could be rowed around the Llyn by the lucky quarrymen. That would have been in Victorian times. Both are intact but spongy now. In the peat around the near edge in the photography you can still find pieces of birch from when there was brush and scrub - this went a long time ago (up to 2k years) so the wood is ancient but preserved in the peat and looks surprisingly fresh. Cwm Idwal is very popular and extremely photogenic although awkward to walk to in snow (as I have found out myself).
