This photograph taken in September 2020, not long after the first pandemic lockdown. I remember how wonderful it was to get back over to Llanddwyn Island as it one of my favourite places to photograph.
I’d been looking at this particular composition for some time but had restrained myself from capturing it because I felt the light wasn’t quite right on previous occasions. But this time was different, it was sunset so the light was ambient and there were three small yachts moored off the rocks where the beacon was sited, which added another element to the composition, the S like curve of the beach, which initially attracted me to the potential of the shot was working fantastically in drawing the eye through the scene to the headland and then to the beacon and yachts and on to the wonderful colours of sunset, which were being complimented by the emerging blues of the inevitable onset of blue hour.
Even the waxing moon decided to make a show and added a little of his slivery light to the evening sky, making, in my opinion, a really nice capture. So, all in all, it was great to back on Ynys Llanddwyn and being able to walk Traeth Llanddwyn again.
