The story behind this image

The Isle of Anglesey, situated just off the North Wales coast, has many, many beautiful coastal views, all accessible via the 125 mile long Anglesey Coastal Path.

One of the most iconic is the wonderfully placed lighthouse, just offshore at Penmon Point on the southeastern tip of the island.

Pictured here at low tide on a glorious evening in July 2017, the sunlit lighthouse seems dwarfed by the surrounding rocky coastline and the waters of the Irish Sea.

With Puffin Island in the background and the instantly recogniseable limestone headland of the Great Orme on the far horizon this is a stretch of coast that I'll keep on coming back to for as long as I'm able.

So much beauty in such a small space.
