The first day of the new year, the first day of the new decade! After a lazy start, relaxing in bed, drinking fresh coffee whilst sunshine poured through the window, we decided to make the most of the beautiful conditions and get a walk in. We drove to the Great Orme to maximise exposure to the New Year’s sunshine and scrambled up through the limestone buttresses to reach the summit. The views back across to Snowdonia were stunning, the huge mountains just stopped at the sea and looked more reminiscent of some Greek islands than the Welsh coast. The sea was so calm and the tiny yacht making its way out of the Conwy estuary helped to describe just how huge and magnificent everything looked. In terms of climate disaster and self-interested politics worldwide we are in such frightening times, but today’s conditions at the start of the new decade, infused us both with a small dose of happiness and positivity that I hope to God we can still find more of over the next few years. UPDATE - and then there was a killer pandemic - Holywood couldn't create a better disaster movie :-(

Lovely. I'm sure others on here will also appreciate the commentaries to your phots. They add a further dimension.

Dear Greenbanks, thank you. Even as a full time pro photographer, words have always been as important to me as the images. I love reading the background to other people's images, and hearing their thoughts and stories - as you say, it creates context, and context means so much to our understanding about we we took something in the first place. Of course some won't read the stories but just look at the image and that's fine too if they want to do that.

Very much agree with those sentiments. I liken it to my appreciation of song lyrics, almost as much as the music itself - though both very much stir the emotions. Thanks for your insights.

Wonderful. Evokes images of Tillman following some South Atlantic coastline.

Llawer o ddiolch Myfyr ;-) Yes! It’s hard to believe it’s our North Wales Coast - looks like some Adriatic coastline or something, especially with the little yacht below adding to that sense of voyage!
