It's not really a landscape photo of the week is it? So sorry about my irregular posts, but I really am doing my best to choose a interesting and different photograph every week across my various favourite locations, like the Peak District, Manchester, Yorkshire and the Lake District.
I’ve been really busy with some work for Amazon Destinations recently and one shoot took me to Anglesey. I had great plans to shoot various parts of Anglesey whilst i was there, but time ran away from me. Given all my hard work that day i really wanted to do some landscape photography. It occurs to me that the lovely spot Talacre was a short diversion from my journey home and it looked like we might have a great sunset especially as Point of Ayr is the northernmost point of mainland Wales.
So I pulled off the A55 and headed towards Talacre Beach and the Point of Ayr Lighthouse. Hoping the sun would catch the side of the lighthouse as I walked the 5 minutes steel own the beach to this gorgeous example ofBritish engineering. Built in 1776 (inactive since 1883) it was built to protect ships at the entrance to the River Dee estuary.
The lighthouse once displayed two lights. The main beam, at 63 feet, shone seaward towards Llandudno. A secondary beam shone up the River Dee, towards the hamlet of Dawpool, in Cheshire, on the English side of the estuary.
I really want to get there when the tide is in - maybe one for winter time.
