photoblog image (North Wales Notebook)  Porthmadog Harbour 3/5

(North Wales Notebook) Porthmadog Harbour 3/5

We had a weeks holiday in Porthmadog, North Wales in early September and so for the next few weeks I will be featuring a variety of images and collages, and a mix of subjects, which I hope you find entertaining.

 

Looking out towards the sea from the flat we rented is this lovely view of the outer harbour and the Snowdonian mountains in the distance. The tide is up in this shot but believe it or not when the tide is out all that water in the distance goes and all that is there are sandbanks.  You will see examples of this later in this lengthy series.

 

I have had this image as the wallpaper on my PC ever since we returned from holiday in September.

 

On Sunday we had a ride out on the Great Central Railway from Loughborough to Leicester, I have put a short slideshow of some of my images from that on my Flickr account for any steam railway fans that care to have a look.

You show this really well, like I am trying to do for Weston.
Brian Walbey: Are but I'm showing the better bits of Porthmadog Chad, I didn't photo the grotty bits.
I could wake up to this view with no problem at all, Brian. The light is gorgeous.

So when the tide is out, would you be able to walk to that Island in the background?
Brian Walbey: We were forced to look at this view all the time Beverly smile No you can't walk out to the island but you will see that better tomorrow and Friday.
A nice bright day for a change Brian..and I'm sure you both enjoyed it.
Brian Walbey: We had a great time Ron.
