Photographer's Note

Good Morning Friends,

The promenade at Llandudno has tall elegant lamps and ornate railings, leading to its splendid pier. In the morning, the sun made lacy shadow patterns all along the walkway.

The pier, which can be seen in the b/g, was opened in 1884, is 700 metres long and is the longest pier in Wales, the fifth longest in the U.K. It replaced a much shorter pier built in 1858.

A British Tourist Authority report in 1975 said of it: .... It zooms out of the sea.... in a spectacular Indian Gothic style rather like the palace of a Maharajah floating on a lake. Cast iron, brackets of iron lacework, an outstandingly pretty balustrade like an enlarged fish net, ogee roofs curling away to the sky, all add up to a totally pleasurable experience.

I will post a close-up of the pier later.

If you look carefully, you will see the multitude of wind turbines that spread across the sea at this point. They are not unsightly and, hopefully, are serving a useful purpose.

Have a great week, Bev :-)
