The story behind this image

A slice of life on the North Wales coast at the far end of the North Shore promenade at Llandudno.

A favourite spot for sea anglers, nestled in the lee of the Little Orme limestone headland casting off from the shingle beach into the calm waters of Llandudno Bay on a lovely still evening.

And I was appreciating the calm conditions also, using my longest lens to photograph the offshore turbines of the Gwynt y Môr wind farm, far out in Colwyn Bay.

In anything more than a light breeze this long lens twitches all over the place, even when using a tripod, causing blurry images or shaky video.

But not this evening, as I was able to photograph this rather charming scene with perfect clarity as the lowering sun lit up the turbines on the far horizon of Colwyn Bay.
