One of the main things and I were looking forward to on this summer excursion around Snowdonia and the Llŷn Peninsula was a walk around the gorgeous Newborough Beach and the ultimate destination of Ynys Llanddwyn (pronounced UNus shlandOIN, meaning “The church of St. Dwynwen”): a small tidal island that rises off the northern end of Newborough beach on Anglesey. http://goo.gl/tZxhdC
Ynys Llanddwyn is a mystical place and, according to legend, the final resting place of St. Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers and therefore the Welsh equivalent to St. Valentine. She fell in love with a young man named Maelon, but rejected his advances to remain chaste and become a nun. She then retreated to the solitude of Llanddwyn Island to follow the life of a hermit. The ruins of her church are still standing.
What struck me with hiking around Ynys Llanddwyn was the sheer amount of wildflowers everywhere… it was amazing! Like a puppy with a new chew toy, I excited shot many compositions utilising these flowers, such as this one looking towards the Celtic Cross dedicated to St. Dwynwen. =)
ISO100, f⁄2.8, 1⁄125sec at 16mm (24mm full-frame equiv.) using a circular polariser and a soft 2-stop ND grad filter on my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 and Nikon D7000. I used a large aperture to increase my shutter speed as it was super windy! But to keep the whole image sharp from the near foreground flowers to the distant cross, I shot five exposures at different focal points so I could blend them all together in post for a completely sharp image. Thankfully, the dynamic range was contained using the polariser and grad filter. Processed with Rawtherapee’s Kodak Ektar 100 film emulation.
