The story behind this image

Mid winter on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey is the only time in the year that you can catch a sunset from the southwest facing bay of Porth Dafarch, so when the weather forecast is half decent my wife Liz and I make a pilgrimage here to watch and film at this lovely location.

With cliffs framing the sunset and wet sand reflecting the dramatic skies you'd be hard pressed to find a better spot from a photographic point of view.

And I certainly took full advantage of this rare opportunity, shooting hundreds of still images to make my Porth Dafarch Timelapse #2 video.

I chose this individual frame from the shoot to present as a still image, with the sun perfectly framed between the two rocky headlands either side of the bay.

Just a wonderful evening to be out and about enjoying the beauty of God's creation.
