The story behind this image

The beautiful Isle of Anglesey, North Wales, has an amazing and varied coastline, with unspoilt beaches, hidden coves and dramatic cliffs all round its 125 mile circumference.

One of the loveliest stretches, to my mind at least, is on the west coast of the island around the small seaside settlement of Rhoscolyn.

Just a short hike from the lovely beach you will come across some amazing cliffs and coves, with colourful twisted rock formations contrasting with the azure sea.

This photo hopefully conveys just a hint of the wonder one feels standing at the top of one of those cliffs, looking out over a rock strewn bay to the far horizon.

Certainly one of those 'aaah' moments!
