“North Wales presents end­less op­por­tu­ni­ties for pho­tog­ra­phers, and Pen­mon is one of the best. Mark has found a nice com­po­si­tion – in fact, I've cap­tured a very sim­i­lar an­gle here my­self. By ar­rang­ing the el­e­ments in the scene in just the right places, he's given the im­age depth and of­fered view­ers plenty to ex­plore. Hav­ing said that, there's al­ways room for im­prove­ment. Land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy is as much about tech­ni­cal cam­era skills as it is about read­ing the el­e­ments, and putting your­self in the right place at the right time. This is a lo­ca­tion that's trans­formed by light at both sun­rise and sun­set, and the right light can be the dif­fer­ence be­tween a good im­age and great one. Mark’s also vis­ited dur­ing a high tide and while this ben­e­fits from water sur­round­ing the light­house, it does means you miss many of the re­flec­tive rock pools that dot the rocky shore. Still, a great ef­fort, and a lo­ca­tion well worth re­vis­it­ing again.”
