(North Wales Notebook) Around Porthmadog 1/5

This is the final week of images from our holiday in Porthmadog, North Wales in early September and for that I am returning to Porthmadog where we started out a few weeks ago.

 

The final week of this North Wales set sees us return for some more images near to Porthmadog harbour and this is looking across the harbour to the mountains beyond.  This really does show how far the tide recedes when it is out, this is nothing but water at high tide.

 

I have calmed down today after my rant on Friday about a judging at my Club, thanks for all your kind words support.

If you were boating in these part one would need to know the tides very well
Brian Walbey: You certainly would vintage.
Hard to imagine such a huge difference between high and low tides, Brian.
Lovely vista beyond the harbour.
Brian Walbey: Yes the whole estuary empties out Beverly.

I bet this estuary is good for birdwatching Brian
Brian Walbey: Probably Chris although September is not the best of seasons for that I would think.

You really would need to understand the ebb and flow of this place, Brian, to feel comfortable with where you are at any given moment...especially with your camera.
Brian Walbey: That's right Ginnie, hard to believe it is extremely deep when the tide is in.

Using the furled sails as a frame is innovative and effective, now-calm Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.

the clouds give great shadows on the mountain
Brian Walbey: I must admit to not noticing the clouds when I took the shot Chantal.
Makes a great contrast with the big tide changes. Lovely place
Brian Walbey: Very deep tide change as well Bill.

You clearly have fond memories of this place Brian.
Brian Walbey: This was from outside the back of the harbourside apartment we rented, such a lovely outlook.
A very pretty shot. The light was perfect for you that day.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, yes it was a good day for shots like this.
A lovely capture Brian. It looks like a beautiful place to visit.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Laurette, this is a lovely part of North Wales.
A fine view, well captured.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Graeme.
One of my favourite parts of the country Brian..You have done it justice.
Brian Walbey: And mine Ron, thanks for your comment.
Very attractive.
It hasn't lost anything in the weeks you've been swanning around Wales! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, it hasn't has it.
Lovely scenic view, it does you good to let of steam now and then, lol, smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda, on both counts smile
Looks great, reminds me of Barmouth also, further down the coast.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, that is the coastline that leads down past Harlech to Barmouth in the distance.
a real cracker Brian
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Richard.
This low tide image is quite impressive Brian. I like the light!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, the tide fall here is very deep indeed.
Superb shot with the masts framing Brian. Glad you've calmed down
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, next time that judge comes I might actually put in a picture of a chocolate box!

I bet the wading birds love this sort of coast, Brian. What a lovely view of the mountains.
Brian Walbey: Yes I guess they would Alan, although this was September and there wasn't much in the way of seabirds about.
Such lovely scenery
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Martin.
Goregous view, Brian - nicely framed by the boat masts
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Tom.
Magnificent place. A+ VAL smile
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Val.
