Rocky Cove

By rhiw_com  
Porth Llawenan, Llyn peninsula.

Taken Tuesday night. One of the most difficult venues on Llyn to reach, nearly a mile from the main road, three fences to climb over and four muddy fields to stomp through. Thatís without mentioning the steep and slippery cliff. No wonder that Iíve hardly ever seen a soul there.

F18, 10 sec, Lens @ 17 mm, ISO 100, ND grad filter, 4:35pm.

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

Hope you like it, and many thanks for all your comments and clicks on my last upload. They are very much appreciated.

Hope you all have a great Christmas, Regards Tony

Since seeing your superb coastal shots I am looking forward to my next visit to the seaside. I know my results will not be as good as this though. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Nice to see beaches which have not been spoilt by exploitation or sea wall defences. This is a place of real beauty and you have captured it to perfection Tony, well done once again.
Happy Christmas to you, Gwenllian and Smot.
