The story behind this image

It takes a bit of a climb to get there, but the views from the top of the Sychnant Pass on the North Wales coast make the effort more than worthwhile.

With a beautiful foreground of colourful heather and a high vantage point overlooking the beach at Conwy Morfa, together with the Great Orme, Llandudno and the Colwyn Bay offshore wind turbines in the background, this is a view that encompasses all that's wonderful about the North Wales coast.

Especially in the warm light of a late afternoon sun towards the end of a glorious summer's day spent exploring the coastline.
