Long exposure

I hope you all enjoyed the mild weather over the weekend. I noticed my neighbours snowman is finally on it's last legs so it must be warming up. Derek will be here shortly with the latest weather update...

I popped down to Rest Bay, Porthcawl for a surf on Saturday afternoon and was pleased to report that the sea felt much warmer without the minus air temperatures!

The surf was good too, with nice clean 3-5ft waves and virtually no wind. The beach was busy too with every man and his dog down there as well as a few power kiters and fishermen. It almost felt like spring was in the air...

For the non surfers out there - 'clean' refers to the wave shape rather than the cleanliness of the ocean. 'Clean' waves occur when the swell, wave direction, wave period and wind direction are all just right to provide nice peeling waves (which hold up long enough) for us to surf along.

Our Flickr group has been busy as usual and Kev Lewis has been honing his skills shooting long exposure shots at night of star trails on Anglesey.

This is looking West from Llanbadrig Church towards Wylfa, on the left is Cemaes Bay:
