Sunrise to Sunset – Lighthouses, Piers & Bridges – A WelshotRewards Day

Sunrise to Sunset – Lighthouses, Piers & Bridges – A WelshotRewards Day event for Welshot Academy Members.  Starting at Penmon, we will capture the sun as it rises above the Great Orme which overlooks Llandudno, North Wales.  You will learn how to take long exposure, experimenting with using various shutter speed to slow the movement of water, which will give the sea that ‘Milky – Blurry’ look.  This photographic event is guaranteed to provide the photographer with a wide range of subjects and genres.  From seascape to landscape photography, from architectural to nature and wildlife – this is a day for those who like to amble around with their camera. 

From Telford’s Menai Bridge to Robert Stephensons Britannia Bridge, which both connect the Island of Anglesey to the mainland of North Wales, these photogenetic structures will both delight and reward the photographer. Starting from the Coed Cyrnol Car Park, we will be walking along the Belgium Promenade, stopping at Llandysilio Island (otherwise known as Church Island) to capture the Britannia Bridge in all her splendour, before heading towards, and underneath, the magnificent Telford’s Bridge.  As we walk up to, onto and over the Menai Bridge itself we will capture this historical structure from both sides and all angles in our cameras.  If time permits, we can then make our way, by car, to the local lookout layby near to the A55 (and Britannia Bridge) so you can capture both bridges in all their glory as the sun goes down.  After the blue hour you will head home from a wonderful day of lighthouses, piers and bridges.
