Slowly and inevitably the chalk cliffs move down to meet the sea.

Anglesey lies in the approaches to the River Mersey and the port of Liverpool. This jetty at Point Lynas, just next to the small lighthouse, is sometimes used by Mersey Pilots to board their Cutters and go out to the waiting ships to guide them into the River Mersey. Point Lynas is situated on the north east side of the island. I took this shot at 6.30pm., it was already getting dark and the light was failing quickly, which for me, only added to the mystery and beauty of the place.

Some of the most interesting landscapes, or in this seascape, are, at first look, the most gloomy. The remains of the concrete pier are, I have to admit, pretty ugly, the sky is one of those “is it going to pour down?” skies, but non the less, the place has a certain gravity – it fascinated me more than if it had had a blue sky and nice fluffy sheepy clouds. But there again, I do tend towards a certain gloom in my photography.

The tide was out, revealing the mud banks. The sun shone through the early morning mist giving the scene a ghostly feel. It was a wonderful 30 minutes or so until the mist was burnt off and the atmosphere was gone.

Back over to the bizarre rock formations of the Pink Granite Coast – again they seem to work well in black & white.
