The story behind this image

It was a lovely, clear, calm, sunny winter's day on the North Wales coast, which was all the incentive my wife Liz and I needed to jump in the car and head to the beautiful Isle of Anglesey for a bracing stroll along the Menai Straits, that famous body of water that separates Anglesey from the North Wales coast.

The Menai Straits is a wonderful sensory smorgasbord of visual, auditory and olefactory delights, but of course, it's only the visual that can be recorded on a photograph unfortunately!

This view of the Straits, looking towards the snow capped peaks of Snowdonia in the far distance, features the wall of the tiny harbour right at the end of the road along the Anglesey Coastal Path, glowing in the warm light of the setting sun.
