Snow topped hills of Wales, from Crosby beach. Explored Frontpage

Newer Older

I had popped down to Crosby beach in the hope that there would be a touch of colour for sunset, sadly that wasn’t going to happen, a little further up the beach this time, while the snow has just about all gone here, the snow topped hills of Wales were almost glowing in the gloom, this shot is after sundown and you might be able to see the lights of the buoys and Welsh towns many miles away, I guess it is quite clear at sea level and the cool means there is less haze, in large there is quite a lot of detail to be seen.

As always not entirely sure this works for you, but I liked to see snow covered hills as a backdrop, seems to give some idea of the scale of things, I would love to be able to name all the places in view, but I can say that I could see the isle of Anglesey off to the right behind wind farm turbines (another shot) in view maybe the lights of the towns of Rhyl, Prestatyn , Colwyn bay, Llandudno.

    Great shot, having been to Crosby before, I had no idea that the Welsh coast could be seen... too misty when I went I guess

    Thanks all.
    Cheers, oh yes, it can normally be seen, I want to identify the places, I hope to revisit with longer lens at some point, but crops do show a suprising amount of detail considering the distance
