Me and the wife went for a little ride around Anglesey today, covering forty one miles at a steady pace. We didn’t have much choice heading west on Lon Las Cefni due to the fairly leg-demolishing westerlies, but I must admit, it was very nice to be completely away from traffic all the way from Llangefni to Malltraeth. I’m not normally one for cycle tracks, but this one is OK, albeit completely open to Anglesey’s relentless wind.
I didn’t take many pictures to be honest, as the sky was clouded over for most of the ride, but when we arrived back at the car, a very friendly and chatty Welsh gentleman took our picture for us:
And as the water in the Straits was looking a lovely jade colour in the sun, I took a swift few portraits for a panorama:
We arrived home and I helped my wife to pack up for work after we ogled some bikes on Ribble’s website (gotta love Ribble), one of my favourite and most used on-line cycling retailers.
The light was looking good over the mountains, so I got out the ‘proper’ camera so I could shoot RAW and fired off three landscape orientation photos with a view to stitch together in Photoshop; you can see the difference in quality between the images above taken with a point-and-shoot (which are still damn good, if I may say so myself – it’s not always about the camera). Here’s the final result after bouncing to-and-fro between Lightroom and Photoshop:
Anyway, that’s all for today folks, I hope you enjoyed the pictures.
Thanks for looking 🙂
