The story behind this image

A lovely spring afternoon on the North Wales coast at Conwy Morfa, and my wife Liz and I are out strolling along the dunes, taking in the sea air as the low angled sun kisses the landscape with golden light.

By my feet the marram grass catches the light beautifully, while across the waters of the Conwy estuary the limestone monolith of the Great Orme at Llandudno dominates the horizon.

This is a time for counting your blessings, being able to immerse oneself such loveliness, but, of course, it's also a time for photography, with this simple image just taking a few seconds to compose and expose before we moved on.
