I’ve been on Ramsey for less than 12 hours but already I’ve taken some photos I’m quite pleased with. I’ve neglected my photography over recent months and I seem only to take an interest when I’m on holiday but I need to make more effort!
Having the time to spend a while just wandering around searching for a view that looks good really makes a difference but I seem to lack the enthusiasm and energy to do it in day-to-day life. However, I’ve made full use of this evening. After a fruitless hour spent looking for puffins off the shoreline of Aber Mawr (the large bay just next to The Bungalow, where the volunteers stay), I wandered around the north west coast of the island as the sun slowly set. The light gave a richness to the scene, the ‘Golden Hour’ living up to its reputation, and this is one of the results – vibrant Thrift with Carn Llidi in the background (Carn Llidi has to be in at least 50% of all photos taken on the island – it’s the law!).
