Taken with a Nikon D7000 this image is of St Cwyfan’s Church off Anglesey, North Wales, UK is known locally as the Church in the Sea.

200 views as of 06-03-2012 – My first 200 views picture.

It’s located on a small tidal island called Cribinau located off the west coast of Anglesey and close to the village of Aberffraw.

Also known as Llangwyfan the church can be reached on foot at low tide.

Old maps show the church once standing on the mainland of Anglesey but erosion by the sea of the boulder clay cliffs has since separated the church from the mainland.

Taken using a Nikon D7000 with 18 – 105mm lens, 10 stop B&W filter, post processed in Photomatix.

Hi, I’m Simon and im a keen 25 year old amateur photographer from Anglesey, North Wales.

I don’t really have a niche as many photographers find, instead I like to shoot anything! Kind of if I find it interesting, there will be a picture to follow.

Most of my pictures are completely un-edited and ‘as shot’ so to speak, im not a fan of heavily edited images at all but I do find HDR very interesting.

Any tips, tricks, ideas and im all ears.

Thank you.

    My second home !! great capture Si .. : ))

  • Cheers Ray, to be honest it was after looking through your images I thought to myself that’s a place I’ve not been to in years. Infact the last time I was there actually on the beach was the day I passed my driving test, so 8 years ago to be precise.

    I don’t remember this place, what part of Anglesey is it on? It would be a hard church to attend at high tide! Even so it was probably pack during some of the great Welsh revivals!

  • It’s near Aberfraw and Ty Croes on the South West coast of Anglesey, can be found here on Google maps.
