Photographer's Note

Apologies for the title - the old jokes are the best!

This is a shot of the cliffs from the coastal path that encompasses Anglesey. This section is just before the South Stack lighthouse which I have posted on here a few times already.

The entire coastline consists of views like this and is very different from the coastline found in North Wales more generally. People liken the scenery here to Cornwall but interestingly, the geology of these cliffs is pretty unique and has resulted in this area acquiring the status of European GeoPark.

Currently there is much academic debate about these cliffs with some arguing that the cliffs are the result of large scale earth movements rather than having being formed by sedimentary succession, which is more usual.

Enjoy.

Going away for a few days so will respond to comments and post more on my return.
