Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Convergence

For me the word convergence can go three ways … Lines converging in the distance in the, in this shot of the seafront up the coast at Tywyn on a stormy summer day. Sweeping your eye along that line into the farthest point where sea, beach and sea-wall merge in one… Or perhaps lines converging in nature,…… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Convergence

Black & White Seaside

Yesterday we had a bit of a roadtrip, visiting a few places in north Wales. One place where we stopped and took photos was Tywyn, where we had a wander up and down the seafront. It didn’t feel very summery as it was very windy and chilly. I was wrapped up in jumper and coat…… Continue reading Black & White Seaside

I liked the look of the castle ruins against the beautiful sky, and I’ve used HDR Efex Pro to pull together 3…… Continue reading Aberystwyth Castle

Sea Pinks

Yesterday we went for a walk on the beach and I was looking for some new spring growth and was delighted to find the Sea Pinks (or Thrift) are starting to flower. These were one of the first flowers…… Continue reading Sea Pinks

Peaceful Beach Views

We went for a little trip to Aberaeron yesterday – a town down the coast road from Aberystwyth – and enjoyed a sunny (but windswept) walk by the sea around the harbour. I took lots of photos, but these ones are my favourite calm, peaceful photos of the sea, the beach and gulls flying. It…… Continue reading Peaceful Beach Views
