For weeks it seems the weather has been set against me with brilliant weather during the working week and as soon as weekend approaches, nothing but overcast skies and rain... a very frustrating forecast for a landscape photographer.
By the beginning of June I could take no more, I took a gamble on what could possibly be a little sunshine over Anglesey, while the rest of England promised more rain.
There were blue skies as I arrived at South Stack Lighthouse for my very first time, a place I never seem to have found the time to visit. Excited, I parked the camper van and walked to the edge of the cliff to see the lighthouse for the first time and my first landscape photography location in far too long. I couldn't see the lighthouse... in fact I couldn't see anything at all. Covering the water for as far as the eye could see was a blanket of fog thick enough to completely submerge the lighthouse. Undeterred I walked down the many steps to check out possible compositions, hard to do when the lighthouse was not visible but I just loved the steps leading down and hoped the lines would lead to where I suspected the lighthouse would be.
It wasn't until early evening that the fog finally cleared and it wasn't dark enough to take a good night shot until after midnight. So at around 12:30 with the aid of my powerful head-torch I headed back down the steps and captured this shot.
