The last shot of an outing to Penllech beach on the north coast of Llyn last night. I used my torch to light the rock on the left, the small light is a fisherman in the distance, I think he thought I was signaling him!

F20, 30 sec, Lens @ 12 mm, ISO 400, ND grad, 19:20pm.

Please view...large...if you can.

For anyone thinking of coming to Llyn to photograph, this beach should be on your list of venues. The rock formations are among the best you will see anywhere, and has literally hundreds of rock pools. And unlike some of our beaches, it's good no matter what the state of the tide. The only drawback, the dreaded footprints, which can be a pain!

Many thanks for your comments on my last upload.

Regards Tony

This is so simple but so effective. Beautifully composed with that 'S' shape snaking through the lighter parts of the water. I am glad you left that light in - a reminder that there is someone else around, even though so far away.
