Sunset and Wave Action

Cable Bay Sunset

Well we’re back from a fab week in Rhosniegr, Anglesey, the weather didn’t play very fair for the first couple of days with very heavy rain and winds, didn’t bother us though, straight onto the rocks and captured some serious wave action, shot below as I got one straight over my head, God you cant explain how good it feels to be alive when this happens, so exhilarating to say the least.

This shot above was taken on Tuesday evening  when we had a great sunset, I dashed round to Cable Bay and spent a good hour compiling shots, I must have 50 to process that will make it to web, the conditions were so good. In all I managed 3 sunsets, one sunrise and a hell of a great wave and wind day, thought I’d been in some dodgy spots before…..never anything like this, 30 foot drop and waves hammering me from all sides, my legs still ache from being tensed against the force of the wind. The  shot below illustrates the power of the sea, I was right in the middle of it, I saw the wave coming towards me quickly wiped my filter and lifted the camera and rattled off 3 shots, this being the most pleasing.

Much much more to follow.

    Can’t say much about the Wild waves other than I feel cold and wet just looking at it. Your brave mate il give you that. I bet you was soaked through, lol
    Cable bay looks awesome, love the sea, and the bits trickling between the rocks in the front foreground.

    Excellent Wild Waves shot. I see what you mean when you said that you’d got the shot you wanted and how you came to get drenched. Yes, I was the chap standing 20 yards behind you with whom you talked just after you’d taken that shot.

      Hi Alan

      lovely to hear from you, yes it was a funny old day and I guess unless you were there you wouldn’t really understand just how possibly dangerous a location it was, bad from all angles but I think worth it and if I was to go it would be with the sea, its a special place for me on those rocks, been climbing them since I was 5 so quite a few years now…lol always makes me feel closer to my mum.

      Let me know when you post some shots would love to see you r work

      all the very best and hope to stay in touch, did your daughters recital go ok?
