Landscape Photography guide to Anglesey, North Wales - Amwlch to Cemaes

The Anglesey Coastal Path after Amwlch becomes very rugged and it rises and falls dramatically, passing through more highly photogenic industrial ruins. The landscape photographer walking this section of the Anglesey coastal path is spoilt for choice.

The first major opportunity for the photographer along this section of the coastal path is Bull Bay, a nice enough place and a popular tourist destination, but perhaps lacking any substantial opportunities for photography - it's still worth a visit just to be sure. From Bull Bay the path starts to climb dramatically and it's from here onwards that the landscape provides a great deal of inspiration for the photographer. Near the end of the long climb you arrive at the stunning Porth Wen, a large bay surrounded by rocky cliffs with, on one side, the remains of disused Victorian brickworks. Although abandoned the main structures remain, the kilns, chimneys and a small harbour wall, it is actually quite impressive, its location enhancing its appeal. Porth Wen is an excellent location for the landscape photographer, particularly anyone interested in industrial landscapes.

Leaving Porth Wen the Anglesey Coastal Path climbs further and the drama of the landscape increases, becoming even more rugged and visually stunning. The photographer really is spoilt for choice, the industrial ruins continue with a series of kilns and buildings located where the path falls suddenly back to sea level in a series of valleys. It really is difficult to overemphasis the photogenic nature of this section of the Anglesey Coastal Path. This continues as the path heads towards Cameas, passing along the way the Llandabrig Church. It is perched high on the clifftop overlooking the sea and has a unique character. The church is an excellent photography subject, a wide-angle lens is being essential to make the most of the opportunity.

A short distance down the cliffs from the church is another section of coastline not to be missed. A large, rock-strewn beach appears, the main appeal the landscape photographer being a large section of the mainland that has broken away. It now stands in the centre of the beach resembling a rugged monument. It makes an excellent subject for the landscape photographer, foreground interest is abundant too.
From here the Anglesey Coastal Path falls gradually on its approach to Cemaes. This quaint coastal village has lots of potential for photography, with the small harbour and the large sweeping bay provide the main subjects. Unfortunately though, just around the bay from Cameas things get distinctly less photogenic in the form of a monstrous nuclear power station. This is actually seen occasionally on the approach from Porth Wen but fortunately not too often to detract from the otherwise stunning coastline. I cannot recommend this section of the Anglesey Coastal Path highly enough, in its relatively short distance it provides the landscape photographer with a wealth of opportunities

Frequently Asked Questions...

I bought an antique furniture, dont know what its called?

Its small, and the top is a rectangle mirror. Under the mirror are 2 drawers, what do u call something like this, bc i want to find out if its an antique. (Says from Lennox Shop)

Best Answer...


Need more info to be sure, but it could be a Victorian hall stand. Typically, they were either square or semi-circular in shape, supported on 4 legs, with a low shelf approx. 6-8in above floor level. The mirror was usually quite large (approx. 1.5 x 3ft) and the mirror surround was often quite plain, although some ornately carved examples exist.

Alternatively, if without legs and with a relatively small mirror (approx. 9in - 1ft x 1.5 - 2ft), it may be a ladies' vanity.

If that sounds familiar, it MAY be an antique (although Victorian furniture isn't usually that valuable, due to it's plainness). The only sure way of telling, though, is to have it professionally evaluated, as the Victorian style has been reproduced extensively (there are also fakes around, that look genuine to the untrained eye).

Hope that helps

EDIT: Ooops. Didn't read the question properly - if it's small, it's likely to be a vanity.
