Last Sunday I joined up with my photography society for a walk to Church Island, in Anglesey. After seeing some of the fantastic images on other blogs, I’ve been trying to improve my own photography skills, as photography is a big part of my blog; however in truth I know very little about the subject and have next to nothing in terms of photographic equipment. Fair to say, I was pretty intimidated after seeing the photos other members of the society had taken. Many members are already extremely proficient photographers and are often armed with the latest camera, lens and image enhancing programs. However I resolved to just keep doing my own thing and learn as I go. Below are a few of the photos I took of the day
Church Island has had religious significance since the 7th century when St Tysilio founded a monastery on the island. These day the island is covered in gravestones and although the monastery is gone, a small 15th century church now stands in its place. Church Island is only a hour’s walk from Bangor, just across the Menai Bridge and is home to a large concentration of red squirrels. The tidal island itself is now reachable at any point in the day thanks to the Belgium Promenade, built in 1914 by grateful Belgium refugees.
Thus concludes my tale, if you enjoyed this story feel free to write in the comments, or leave a like and thanks for reading.
