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 panoramic collage takes in a wide stretch of the Straits, as viewed from the road that runs past the famous Anglesey Sea Zoo, and I especially like the distant view of the snow capped peaks of Snowdonia, set against the azure winter skies while the ecologically rich shoreline stretches out at our feet.
