THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOGRAPH

David RossI love this view of Bardsey, but it almost didn't happen. I had arrived at the tip of the Lleyn peninsula in plenty of time, planning to photograph the standing stone by the edge of the cliffs. For over two hours I waited, while the sun played hide and seek, and the light gradually faded. I must have taken dozens of photos, most of them reasonable, but not terribly exciting, and at last the sun passed from the edge of the cliffs and I decided it was time to go home. I packed up my camera gear and walked up the sloping cliffs to the grassy car park above the coastal road. I was about to put my camera in my car when I looked back and saw that the sky over Bardsey had cleared and the late evening sun was casting a rosy glow over the entire coastline. I quickly unpacked my camera and set up my tripod in time to capture this view before the light was gone.David Ross Photography signature

ABOUT BARDSEY ISLAND

Island of 20,000 saints, Bardsey lies at the southern tip of the Lleyn peninsula. The number of saints sounds a little hyperbolic until you realise that in the early days of Celtic Christianity a 'saint' was merely a believer, so the real translation might be something like 'island of the 20,000 Christians'. Whatever the translation, Bardsey was one of the most popular destinations for pilgrims in the Middle Ages, and a busy pilgrim's trail ran down the length of the Lleyn peninsula to a small cove at the base of the cliffs, where boats waited to take pilgrims across.
