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 pilings of a decrepit concrete jetty, slowly emerging from beneath the waters on an ebbing tide.
