Took this a week ago, about an hour before dawn. The building on the left leans that way, the horizon is straight.

The Ty Coch Inn, at Porthdinllaen, is as you can see right on the beach, but because Porthdinllaen is sheltered in all but a Northeasterly wind it hasn't been flooded out since 1958.

The village is packed with tourists during the summer, but in the winter, apart from weekend is quite deserted.

F11, 30 sec, Lens @ 17 mm, ISO 100, ND grad filter, 7:12am.

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

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

Regards to you all, Tony
