This spring has been amazingly colourful - the gorse has been spreading it's rich butter yellow across the Anglesey landscape and the Thrift has been abundant this year. Today I didn't even bother taking my camera - horrible yucky blue sky everywhere :-)) Useless for photography but GREAT for sunbathing under :-) Had my first proper sunbathe today, stripping down to my boxers and soaking up the warmth of the overhead ultraviolet! Already got the first traces of sunburn on my albino body :-))
However, yesterday, after work, Carol and I had the most wonderful, beautiful and intimate walk - all very close and rewarding. Amongst this, there were some great landscape / light opportunities and I shot a good 4 or 5 variations, plus a Kestrel on a cliff face. However, today's blog shot is just a sample of some of that amazing sea pink that we wandered through.
If I hadn't just downed my third Gin & Ginger, I would have waxed more lyrical about the peace and quiet Carol shared on this Anglesey coastline, bearing in mind it was a May Bank Holiday! I would have talked about the warmth of the sunshine, the richness of colour and lushness of the flora covering the cliff tops. I would have mentioned the intensity of the colour of the setting the sun and the backlit breath of the sheep and their lambs on the darkening headland. I would have mentioned the agricultural smells and the dying breeze as the evening went quiet and the landscape went still.
I MAY have mentioned that we couldn't get a table at the White Eagle, one of our favourite eateries, because every single person on holiday here on Anglesey, seemed to have congregated inside and the bar was 3 deep and impossible to get to.
Today, I witnessed the biggest ever line of cars on the road alongside our favourite beach. Just six years ago we could always find a space to park in the dune car park. We rarely saw anyone on the small cover nearby. Yet this afternoon, we literally couldn't park. We had to find a small patch on the verge to slide the van into. I have NEVER witnessed such crowds here on Anglesey beaches! Roll on the working week when I can bunk off work and get the beach back :-)))
