This is a location I have wanted to photograph for many years, a short trip to Cornwall provided me with the opportunity. However, a sense of foreboding came over me as I drove down the M5 and the overhead Gantry's were warning of severe weather on the south west. I knew a storm was coming in and I also knew there was a spot that was sheltered that would give me an angle on the Engine houses. What i hadn't factored in was the thick sea mist that came with the rain. So i had driving rain, poor visibility, flat grey sky and no light, not the best of conditions.

Oh, we can go the road way back, it won't be much further (andImightgetabettersunsetshotfromthere).
The sun drops behind a cloud after a glorious afternoon / evening on Cwm Silyn. The magnificent outlook to the Menai Straight, glinting in the distance, and Anglesey peeking out of the gathering gloom.
