Abersoch is a large and picturesque village on the east facing south coast of the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales. I have been a few times with my camera but the above photograph was taken on my first evening walking around the village and exploring the beach and harbour area. Sadly I wasn’t able to get much of a sunset, but I do remember a number of different boats and yachts sat in the sand like this one, waiting patiently for the following morning’s high tide to come in.
The dramatic dark clouds and huge waves hitting the cliffs at the bottom of Criccieth Castle can only mean one thing, a storm is approaching. I still have no idea what is causing the strange lighter clouds (if they are even clouds) on the right of the frame, but I like the large wave hitting the rock. The black and white processing has really helped add drama to the final photograph.
Aberdaron is a wonderfully picturesque village on the western tip of the Llyn Peninsula in North West Wales. On the day this was taken there wasn’t any great sunlight, which makes the place look not worth visiting, but trust me it is. I have been two or three times at least in all different weather conditions. If you go on a nice sunny day it will be very popular and the grass area in the foreground (which is the village car park) will be full of cars.
Snowdonia National Park in North Wales is one of two national parks within a short drive of my home town that I would like to spend more time photographing. So far I have driven through it half a dozen times and earlier this year I walked up Snowdon (the highest mountain in Wales), but with an area of 838 square miles and dozens of other spectacular mountains and lakes I know that there are more landscapes that my camera is crying out to capture.
