Oblivious

By Goggz
Hello everyone!

This was taken in the afternoon of the Anglesey Minimeet which we had today. Some hardy folk actually braved the elements, not like those who just rolled over and went back to sleep (naming no names!!!). We also had a run in with a shooting party who were after pheasant while we did a bit of urbex...

So, in summary, sunrise didn't, rain, sleet & wind did, and by lunchtime we were wet, cold and hungry, so we went to the pub, as you do Smile

Got a few images I like and the company was excellent! It was a pleasure spending the day with you all Smile

I've enabled mods, so if you have any pap shots, feel free to add them here Smile

Here's to the next time!

CHeers, Goggz

p.s. the title... Anthony missing the wave splash Wink

Nice take on the old classic - I wish I'd stayed a little longer (though the sleet would probably have returned if I had!).

Really enjoyed the day, so many thanks for organizing. Will have to arrange another soon so I can return the drink!

Good to see you again,

Seriously, wish we could have got there but lots of things to do at the moment.

Hope your hand is better Pete.

I see you had some blue sky.

Yeah, a bit disappointing, but the conditions weren't right... one day they will be and hopefully I'll get an even better one than this.

Err, not really Sandra Wink it's more like luck - this was a fleeting vision that lasted literally a few seconds, the rest of the time it was in shade.

Well, the light was off at 4pm when I drove slowly past...

Getting there slowly thanks Lee

Will be thinking about where next over the coming weeks Chris Smile

The figures add a great sense of scale to this.

very nice mate, that was probably the best wave of the time we were there, lol.

Now, I do have a mod, but was thinking of putting it up in its own right, to let as many people as possible see it.

Hmm... decisions, decisions..........

Many thanks for arranging this, and for the company, both dad and I had a great, (long and tiring) but great day.

Cheers buddy.

I'm sorry Pete but if it wasn't at sunrise, sunset or during a rainstorm you can't have a vote!

So you go from one Meet to the other.... Smile Seems that a good telezoom lens here is in order not to be blown down by these waves!

Ah - waves would have been good when we were here. The figures add something special.
