Kayaks #1

Colourful kayaks, stacked on the beach at Llangrannog on the Ceredigion coast, Mid Wales

The story behind this image

After a couple of days enjoying the beauty of the Gower Peninsula on the South Wales coast, my wife Liz and I were bracing ourselves for the long drive back home to North Wales.

But we couldn't leave the area without a diversion to the Ceredigion coast at Llangrannog, to spend a couple of hours walking the lovely beach and headlands of this gem of a spot.

Plus, the weather was extremely nice after a few days of mixed rain and sun, so a final dose of rays was not to be missed.

Llangrannog was at its finest in the bright sunshine, so I took plenty of photos as we walked around.

But I wasn't just interested in sun, sea and sand, as there were plenty of interesting seaside details to enjoy looking at and photographing as well.

Such as these colourful kayaks, stacked against the sea wall outside a surf shop, which made for a vivid display when all extraneous details were excluded from the viewfinder.
