The story behind this image

One of the most enigmatic places on the North Wales coast, this is the graveyard of the church of St Tysilio, situated on its own island on the Anglesey side of the Menai Straits, separating the Isle of Anglesey from the mainland Wales.

In the background is the famous, and first of its kind, suspension bridge across the Straits, engineered by Thomas Telford all those years ago and still as good looking as ever.

A place in which to draw breath and contemplate one's place in history.
