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

Hi Michael !
One may wonder how a fragile, squared frame can hold such a massive cliff...? Well, in a real world, I guess it wouldn't be possible, but right on your very creative composition it is. A breathtaking view, dramatic and well balanced between the rock, water and sky, the clouds seem in reach of the hand. Congratulation !!!

Very moody and classy shot of this interesting landscape. Well seen and executed with cold tones and soft lights. Excellent work.

a beautifully composed and textured shot of this amazing coastline. The light and colours are wonderful and made all the more atmospheric by the moody sky. I can hear the waves!
Regards - Brian.

Una bella foto alla quale il formato quadrato ben si addice per un buon equilibrio tra le rocce, il cielo ed il mare.
I colori cupi ben si addicono all'ambiente rappresentato, nel quale cielo e nubi, pur separati e distinti, si assomigliano nella tonalità e donano un tono di drammaticità.
Ottima la nitidezza e buono il contrasto che danno evidenza alle venature nelle rocce che caratterizzano l'ambiente.
Buone le note
Ciao e buona giornata

Une magnifique photo, j'aime ce format carré et le large cadre blanc.
Ce paysage marin présente une riche game de tonalité et de dégradés.

A beautifully composed shot, with f/g interest, a sense of perspective and nicely fit in context.
There is no doubting the rugged nature of the area, the details confirm it.
It resembles a giant wall that has tumbled into the water and is being ferociously attacked by the tide.
Hope you have a good holiday,

nice hte view of the rocky shoreline with the waves to splashed on them creating a beautiful optical effect.I like the tight frame as the light and the colour management of the image.
Have a good night,Danos
