Big Brooding Sky
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.
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
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.
As I´ve written before, it´s often the small things that catch my eye – the overgrown wall or grave in a country churchyard often fascinate more than the total view. I took this at the back of the Llanffinnan churchyard on the island of Anglesey, North Wales. In itself this is no remarkable or noteworthy place – excepting that the Tudor dynasty, the ancestors of Henry VIII and Elisabeth I, heralded from Penmynydd a small village which is just a stone´s throw from here – but it´s forgotten anonymity gives it a certain charm.
What else can one do at such times, but look, and meditate.
