Landscape Photography, Wales Landmarks, Anglesey, Rhosneigr Sunset

Landscape photography at a Wales landmark. Rhosneigr sunset.

This was taken a few weekends back on a trip to Anglesey, Wales. I stayed in a beautiful place called Rhosneigr,  it was my first time camping with the dog, and you know what, he loved it! I stayed at Bodfan Farm, recommended by friend and fellow landscape photographer Adrian Ashworth. Adrian knows Rhosneigr like the back of his hand and had shown me this outcrop of rocks a few weeks prior, and although this isn’t really Landscape Photography in it’s truest form it makes for a cracking place to be at sunset!

I managed to capture the dead-calm of the ocean this time, a rare sight at this time of year! The tide was on its way in and the sun was on its way down, so i had to move quickly to get the exposure – a great opportunity to try out my new Singh-Ray 3 stop Reverse ND. I’m pleased with the results it gives. Let me know what you think…

The nice thing about this trip is my feet stayed dry and I didn’t drop any kit this time around. On the last landscape photography outing my boots leaked (yup, both!!) and one of my favourite filters took a dunking, it survived but I was lucky, it was a glass 4″x4″ ND, super rare and darn expensive too! I guess that’s one of the perils with landscape photography is carrying around all this glass, maybe it’s time to order that Peli case!?

1.6 sec @ f/11, ISO 100

    I am a newbie in photography and I don’t own a DSLR like you and I was wondering if an average user can shoot something like this with an average consumer camera? Anyway, I am stoned by your photo!

    Wow, that is an incredible shot. Love the clarity and sharpness, and the way the sun is positioned off centre – almost as an afterthought to the shot. I must also confess to having some slight kit envy 😉

    The sum, the rocks and the water. What a combination! How did you like your stay in the farm? It must have been fun with the family and the dog. Post more pics please.

    We think that you are a great photographer with a perfect sense of timing! I enjoy studying your pics and trying to learn from them. I hope one day I will also become a successful landscape photographer.

    I feel bad to hear about your filter. I know photography equipments are costly. Moreover we have memories attached to them. I am particularly fond of my equipments and never let anyone touch them.

    Not that’s a really good looking landscape you got there. The view is so majestic and amazing. Do you use Canon exclusively?
