I have just returned after spending a week on the fabulous island of Anglesey. If you have never been and you are a landscape photographer this is a wonderful location. You have the option of shooting the many landmarks (I went for the lighthouses), but you can also see Snowdonia from the island which makes a stunning backdrop. I was lucky enough to get at least three sunsets and they were crackers. The island is not large and everything seems 20 minutes away. I found Newborough Beach and Llanddwyn Island to be the most photogenic. Although Trwyn Du Lighthouse was another spectacular location. Coming from Cornwall I was looking for something different and although sometimes it felt like a bus mans holiday the scenery and architecture were different. So if you get the chance make the journey do it!
Over the past 6 months I have been competing on the Photocrowd website https://www.photocrowd.com most competitions involve upto a 1000 photographers who come from all over the world. It's fascinating to see how you perform against stiffer competition. Over these months I have had a series of wins and top ten finishes. You can find my profile here https://www.photocrowd.com/photographer-community/29921/ where you will see on the 23rd of March 2018 I am the 88th ranked photographer and only recently have fallen out of the top 50. I have over 5500 followers on photocrowd which is growing daily. Thanks to everybody who takes the time to follow and comment on my images it's really appreciate.Read More
