The story behind this image

The evening summer sun, low in the sky to the northwest, bathes the huge sea cliffs at South Stack on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey with golden light as a faint breeze ruffles the waters far below.

This is just a wonderful place to be in conditions like these, all the more valued because of their rarity, as normally this coast attracts a lot of cloud coming over from the Atlantic ocean, with rain and wind being the normal state of the weather.

With seabirds wheeling and calling below, and the sweet smell of heather in bloom all around, it's just sheer pleasure to sit in the sunlight on the clifftop, taking the odd photo and letting the senses take in all the wonder of God's creation in this unique and special location.

Visit if you can, as mere images can't convey the true beauty to be found here on an evening like this.
