The story behind this image

A crisp February afternoon on the North Wales coast at Llanfairfechan and my wife Liz and I are out enjoying an invigorating and brisk walk along the promenade in the icy air.

The low angled sunlight is grazing the landscape, highlighting details in beach and rocky headland that can't be appreciated when the sun is high in the sky.

So as Liz continued her stroll I dropped down to the water's edge to capture this image, using an unsuspecting wife as a splash of red in the composition.
