Almost sunset

With the prospect of a colourful sunset Ewan and I set off for North Wales. Plan A was to go to Talacre Lighthouse but plan B went into operation when I realsied we had plenty of time to get to Llandudno Bay or maybe further. We arrived in Caernarfon and parked up next to the castle then strolled over the bridge to get a better view over towards Anglesey. Another photographer had the same idea and I spent some time chatting to him whilst Ewan took photos of the bridge and moon. The orange glow was lighting the castle.

Looking the other way towards the setting sun there was very little moisture in the air to give a full spectrum of colours but the oranges made the scene look quite tropical.

The tide was an hour or so away from high tide and the breeze making it lap gently on the shingle. Soon the sun was all but gone but we were in no rush to leave.

Time for a few photos of the castle and harbour though the wind was getting stronger and a lot cooler.

Quite a lot of driving for a short time walking and taking photographs but the effort was rewarded with some good images unspoilt by the summer crowds.
