Took it this morning at Hell's Mouth on the LLyn peninsula. This was my first shot of the morning, I moved that big red buoy after this, but I prefer the splash of colour in this one. The ruin on the right used to be a tavern at one time, but was abandoned in 1917, after a wave crashed in through the front door and wrecked the premises.

F20, 25 sec, Lens @ 12mm, ISO 200, ND grad filter, 6:10am.

Please view..LARGE...if you can.

Hope you like it, and many thanks for your comments on my last upload.

Hope you have a great weekend, Regards Tony

It all looks so 'abandoned',even the lobster pots are just slung there.Love the composition & subject,colours are wonderful & the time of day this was taken has brought out all the blues so well,excellent sky.

Many thanks for your comments, very much appreciated.

Apparently, in that storm a baby in a crib was washed around the room, and some money on a table was washed away. The family built another house further up the hill, and they lived there from then on.

Thanks for that Phil, next time you come up, let's hope for some better light!

Regards to you all, Tony

The buoy is perfect and I might have even moved it in closer. It goes with the rest of the scene perfectly. But if I was there I also would have done some shots with no buoy just to make sure in case the buoy ones don't work.
