Photo A Day August – 8th


When I first decided to take on this challenge I didn’t realise how hard it would be to create one new HDR image everyday. Part of the problem is trying to find suitable subjects, that don’t involve a lot of travelling. Now living right near the sea, I’m naturally drawn there but I can’t just show you 30 images of the sea, you would soon get bored and so would I. However, this evening I was down on the shore with the dogs and this just seemed to good an opportunity to miss. Which means that the image I had taken earlier today was wasted. So here we are on Prestatyn beach, well to be more exact Ffrith Beach, which is one of three sandy beaches along the Prestatyn coastline – Barkby Beach, Central Beach and Ffrith Beach. A promenade joins the three beaches, and, at around 4-miles in length, is popular for leisurely strolls and cycling. It has recently been incorporated into the new National Cycle Network. There are spectacular views right along the promenade, extending from the Snowdonian Mountains, the Great Orme of Llandudno and Anglesey to the west, through to The Wirral to the east, and Prestatyn Hillside to the south. On very clear days, glimpses can also be caught of the Isle of Man, the Cumbrian Mountains and Blackpool Tower, while the BHP Billiton Petroleum Douglas oil and gas platform in Liverpool Bay is usually clearly visible.
