I took this on the stretch from Treardurr to Four Mile Bridge. The Coastal Path, with a length of somewhat over 200 kms, runs through a wonderful and varied landscape. Taking this island at walking pace allowed us the time to really appreciate this beautiful coastline.
The heavy rain on Saturday night turned to snow. But Sunday dawned dry and the thick cloud cover lifted up into the sunlight which is just starting to pick out the ridge running down from the Oberer Focherzkopf. Both the beginning and end of bad weather can give some very dramatic lighting effects.
I took this shot on the last day of our walk around the coast of Anglesey – I know I´ve jumped ahead there, but I´ll be posting more shots of the walk over the next few days. Treath y Gribin is just before the Stanley Embankment which leads over to Holy Island and Holyhead, our start and end point. By the way Treath is Welsh for beach and Gribin can mean jagged ridge

Last Friday I went down to the Rieserferner Mountains in South Tirol, Italy. It´s a wonderful area with some good peaks and beautiful valleys. Early on Saturday morning, the sun was just peeping over a mountain ridge and back lighting this tree.
In this case, a train journey. We´ve just finished the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path. We reached Holyhead, the start of our 200km round walk, by train from Chester station. The distance sign, opposite our platform, seemed to be a good start to our 12 day journey around the coast of Anglesey.
We found this on a beach in New Zealand, it´s been on a bookshelf for a few years along with other bits and bobs that we brought back. It caught my eye again yesterday so I thought I´d do a shot of it.
