The House That Fell Into The Sea

Living on my part of the North Wales Coast as I do, I'm blessed with miles of sandy beach from Talacre in the east to Rhyl in the west. The beaches are wide and from a photographers point of view pretty boring apart from the groynes which are there to break up wave action. I've... Continue Reading →

The Sunset That Never Happened

Well it did; the sun did set but the sky never lit up as expected. This past week we have been experiencing some glorious sunrises/sunsets and I had hoped that last night would be no exception. Sadly it was! As soon as I got down the beach I could see that big bank of cloud... Continue Reading →

In The Doldrums

For the past few weeks I have I felt like I am in the Doldrums. Becalmed in a sea of indifference to blogging and photography, with no interest in either.

Another Great Sunset

I just knew it was going to happen, a great sunset. You could see the way the clouds were forming that it might be worth taking a trip down the beach. So when the Prestatyn and District Camera Club finished last night I headed straight down there. Not Talacre this time just our local beach.... Continue Reading →

A Bit Of Everything This Week

I sometimes wonder what the guys who dream up the WordPress Weekly Challenge themes are on. So they take a photograph, dream up some vague relationship to time passing and then name the theme Delta. Seriously! So here’s my alternative. By the way, if you want to see a larger version of any photograph, just... Continue Reading →
