The story behind this image

There's been some quite impressive regeneration efforts along the North Wales coast in recent years, and none more so than at Rhyl harbour.

With the promenade given a good facelift, Rhyl harbour is now quite the tourist attraction, with centre stage being given to the very impressive Pont y Ddraig (Bridge of the Dragon) footbridge over th tidal estuary of the river Clwyd as it empties into the Irish Sea.

My wife Liz and I enjoyed a couple of hours wandering about here on a day of mixed weather during a brief respite from Covid lockdown in December 2020, and with beautiful winter sunlight hitting the bridge, while dark clouds looming behind, I'm glad I had my trusty Canon camera with me to record the dramatic lighting on the Pont y Ddraig.
