The story behind this image

The coastline around Rhoscolyn on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, just off the North Wales coast, has some fascinating and dramatic geological features to enjoy.

One of the best is the Bwa Gwyn sea arch, pictured here from on top of the surrounding cliffs on a lovely autumn afternoon way back in 2007.

This was the first time I'd seen the arch, and I've been back many times since, always entranced by the wonderfully eroded and coloured rock.

I wonder how long before the arch collapses? Probably long after I'm gone I think.
