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

(North Wales Notebook) Porthmadog Harbour 5/5

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.

 

To finish this look at Porthmadog harbour a closer view looking out from the garden behind our rented harbourside flat to the Snowdonian mountains beyond, and here you can see, as I mentioned with Wednesday's image the sea in the far distance completely dissapears at low tide leaving only sandbanks, it might be worth looking quickly back to compare the two.  You will see more of this when I take you to Borth-y-gest in a few weeks time.

Looking forward to your pictures of Borth-y gest, Porthmadog's posh bit! ( No Festiniog Railway picures?)
Brian Walbey: Ffestiniog Railway 24th.January and Borth on 7th.February, you will have to be very patient Graeme there are a few other places to see before those like Beddgelert next week.
It's such a photogenic area, I'm looking forward to this series ... although I may not actually comment on each one I will be looking as/when I can wink
Brian Walbey: I will be happy to know that you have enjoyed those you have had time to take a look at Ellie.

It must be difficult to take a bad shot with views like this.
lovely image
Brian Walbey: Yes and being right on the edge of the water the outlook changed all the time during the week with the different weather Aussie.
I like that cloud building up in the background. I hope it didn't bring rain.
Brian Walbey: Not thay day Sheila, but it did a couple of times during the week.

Watching the tides must be a great experience, Brian, when there is such a huge difference between high and low.
Brian Walbey: The high tide line is about 12 inches down from the edge of the harbour just outside the back door and one can sense the depth somehow but when the tide is out there is just a few feet of water left. It was interesting, during the week, to watch it ebbing and flowing.

Not so sure about the composition here, it misses someething to me...
Brian Walbey: Well I guess it is the "empty" centre Chantal but I took it to show how the sea completely dissapears the other side of the island.
North Wales when the sun shines takes a bit of beating Brian
Brian Walbey: A great place Bill, I'm sure you and Angie would enjoy a stay in this flat, the details are on Tuesdays post, we had a very nice time there.
I must visit here Brian
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would enjoy it John and if you like self catering then the flat, see Tuesday's post, couldn't be more ideally situated.
Nice sky!! I am certain you were in awe with these views!!
Brian Walbey: The view was ever changing as the weather and tides changed at different times of the day and night Marion.
This series has help me recover many past memories of this area ... So I'm feeling Ok Brian
Brian Walbey: It's nice to have re-kindled some nice memories for you Richard.
You did get a dry day then Brian..Nice one.
Brian Walbey: We only had one wet day during the whole week Ron, we were lucky.
Looks pretty wild in this view, Brian!
Brian Walbey: It no doubt would be in a storm Tom.
Its a beautiful clear day, the tide sure does go out a long way smile
Brian Walbey: The whole estuary empties out Linda, you will see more of that when I show Borth-y-Gest in a couple of weeks time.

Looks a cracking place to stay, Bria; what a view, too. I'm sorry to have missed your other images this week but will try and catch p.
Brian Walbey: It is a great place round the harbour area Alan but the town is more of a town than a resort if you know what I mean.
lovely place, drove through it when we carried on to cornwall
Brian Walbey: Yes especially round the harbour area Derek.

I can hear the water gently lapping...
Brian Walbey: Yes and when the tide is right in it is only about 6 inches below the harbour wall out back of the flat.
Comparison of the scene during high & low tides is remarkable, Brian. Are the boats stranded here until the tide comes in?
Brian Walbey: The water remains deep enough for them to be taken in and out at low tide Beverly.
A wonderful capture Brian. The light is superb!
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Richard.
