Porth Dafarch #3

The beautiful Porth Dafarch beach at sunset on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales

The story behind this image

This is the beautiful cove of Porth Dafarch, on the Isle of Anglesey, just off the North Wales coast.

With its southwest facing apsect, Porth Dafarch is a wonderful spot to watch a winter's sunset from the warmth of your car, parked conveniently right by the beach.

No such luxury for me though, as I was perched up on the side of the headland to get just the right angle needed to shoot the hundreds of stills required to make my Porth Dafarch Time Lapse #1 video.

This is one of those still images culled from the time lapse sequence, featuring a horse and rider who made a few circuits on the sand just as the sun was setting.

An absolutely lovely scene, but a bit chilly in the January breeze!
