This was taken yesterday afternoon during a two day 1-2-1 with Gareth, a regular client of mine. I love Anglesey and it is a wonderful island full of gems, some revealed and some hidden and this location at Rhoscolyn is a place that I have been wanting to visit for about three years now and yesterday I had the chance to do so so I took Gareth along to see what he would make of it too.
He was not disappointed. Me too. The walk down to the water’s edge is erm….let’s just say….quite steep on grass (don’t go down if wet otherwise you’ll slide off the huge grassy slope and into the water and that would be fatal). But we both managed to descend down to the water’s edge with lots of care and attention but the effort was so worth it.
The seas were raging, with huge waves crashing against the cliffs and rocks. We stood far enough back to avoid the waves themselves (just) but close enough to really capture the action in full flight. It was so exhilarating and exciting to photograph such a fantastic looking place so full of drama. I will definitely be returning on my next visit.
I hope you all like the photograph and please feel free to SHARE if you wish.
