Another image of Y Lliwed and the ruins of the copper mines. This time it´s a two shot panorama using a 28mm lens. On the left is the reservoir, Llyn Llydaw. I´m not sure if the miners who toiled there all those years ago had much time to take in the grandeur of this Welsh mountain cwm, probably not, but it´s a wonderfully impressive place. And, for me, a black and white landscape – maybe it´s got to do with it´s history, maybe it´s the monochrome power of the massive cliffs on Y Lliwed, maybe it´s both, anyway, here it is, in all it´s black and white grandeur!
I was really impressed with the quality of this dry stone wall – good dry stone wallers (if that´s the right name) are surely worth their weight in gold!
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.
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.
What else can one do at such times, but look, and meditate.
This old ruin is situated on the north coast of Anglesey. It was originally built to produce refractory bricks for the steel industry, the bricks being exported directly from it´s own dock. It closed down at the start of the Great War.
