Landscape Photography guide to Anglesey, North Wales – Rhosneigr to Aberffraw
Rhosneigr is a very popular tourist destination, particular with anyone interested in watersports, this makes it a great place for photographers who like capturing windsurfer shots and the like. The village itself doesn’t really have anything to attract the landscape photographer, but the surrounding coastline and beaches provide more than adequate compensation. The main beach at Rhosneigr has far and sweeping views of the surrounding Anglesey coastline, the wide-angle lens can be put to good use again here.
Leaving Rhosneigr along the Anglesey Coastal Path towards Aberffraw immediately brings you to a section of golden sand, half way along which are some excellent rock formations foreground interest is no problem here. On leaving the beach the coastal path continues along the cliffs, initially passing an ancient burial chamber (another photography opportunity) and then two small sandy coves, the larger of which provides the photographer with good possibilities. The coastal path then passes through several fields lacking any noteworthy views or features but soon arrives at Anglesey Racing Circuit. This location is easily reached by car and is an ideal opportunity for any photographer interested in motor sport. Anglesey Circuit holds occasional events but is more frequently open to the public, a variety of motorbikes and high-powered cars can be photographed.
Continuing along the Anglesey Coastal Path photographers are provided with a somewhat unique opportunity. On arriving at a small sweeping bay, just on the outskirts of Aberffraw, an ancient church can be seen surrounded by the sea on its own small island. This is the church of St Cwyfan, dating back to the 12th century. It is accessible by foot, but only at low tide via a small rocky causeway. This is another ‘not to be missed’ photographic opportunity. Personally, I believe the best landscape photograph of the church is taken when the tide has just started to recede, leaving the route of the causeway uncovered but the church still surrounded by the sea. This small bay can actually be reached by a very narrow track from Aberffraw but be warned, in busy periods progress along it can be slow, walking the short distance from Aberffraw is probably preferable.
Having exhausted all photographic possibilities at the church the Anglesey Coastal Path continues on to Aberffraw, the approach to which is particularly photogenic. The village itself sits at the outlet of a river and this provides a good subject. A little experimentation is required to find the best angle for a pleasing photograph, the best possibility is use a wide-angle lens to try and include the attractive section of beach located on the opposite side of the river.
