The Cross and the Lighthouse

By DicksPics
Many thanks for all views, votes and comments on my 'Porth Diana' upload and for all of the treasured User Awards(Thank you messages sent).SmileSmile

Today's images are a few more from our trip to Anglesey; they were taken on Llanddwyn Island near Newborough.

They show St Dwynwen's cross and Tŵr Mawr lighthouse ............. as well as part of the Snowdon Range in the lead image and V1.

The lighthouse marks the western entrance to the Menai Strait.

St Dwynwen's Cross stands on what is probably the highest point of Llanddwyn Island. Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of lovers.

I hope your week is going well.

I like the composition in the third image and prefer the mono second image over the colour.

Excellent juxtaposition between the tower and the lighthouse. The lighthouse has an unusual construction, more like a Norman tower. The lead is my favourite.

I love both compositions - cleverly taken from different angles.
Looks as if your trip to Wales has proved a photographic triumph.

Doesn't seem just over 1 year since visiting here on our Camera Club long weekend trip to Anglesey. We parked up at Newborough, and though it was a bit of a walk along the beach and to the bottom end of the Island, it was worth the effort! There was a film crew there shooting for a BBC series called 'The 1900 Island', with ordinary people, not actors, dressed and living as in that period for 4 weeks in the nearby Pilot's Cottages. It didn't go on the air until June, and it was very interesting to watch the TV series.
Anyway, a very lovely set here Richard, has to be the lead as my fave...and it's almost from the same spot as one of my images! 😁👍

The lead for me as well your trip to Wales has certainly produced some wonderful images !
I would love to go there but November is probably not the ideal month . Great depth of field achieved here
In this peaceful and pretty scene
Cheers Walt
Lead for me Richard. What a big cross outdoes the lighthouse. You have as always photographed this so well. Debs
