Devil's Kitchen

Devil's kitchen is the English name for Cwm Idwal near mount Snowdon in Wales. The sky above the lake here is often stormy and quite dramatic, particularly if the morning or evening sun adds colour to the clouds that blow across the mountains from the Irish sea.
In Welsh legend Gwydion was a Druid or priest to the Gods, and also a Wizard known as "Prince of the Powers of the Air" - a shape shifter who could control the sky and the elements.
