Low Tide on the Afon Conwy estuary, North Wales
Low Tide on the Afon Conwy estuary, North Wales
Blue sky and a warm Saturday afternoon in June.
Low tide on the Afon Conwy estuary - and what an expanse of sand!
Soft and dry to start with as we walked out from the car park at Morfa Conwy, but becoming a landscape of rock pools, broken shells of all sorts & pebbles.
The navigation light out in the channel was completely surrounded by rocks and pebbles - each and every single one of which was absolutely covered in barnacles.
The Afon Conwy is home to extensive mussel banks and the town of Conwy has a long history of mussel farming.
Across the estuary can be seen Y Gogarth, or the Great Orme.
