The Wales Coast Path is the world's first coastal path network to cover an entire country and stretches 870 miles (1400km) from the mouth of the River Dee in Flintshire all the way to Chepstow. Photographer Jeremy Moore has been photographing the Welsh coast for the past two years, and here he shares some of his pictures.
"The intention of this project was to illuminate both Wales and 'Welshness' through the mirror, or prism, of its shoreline," says Moore.
Moore's pictures document both the landscape and those who live and work on the dramatic coastline.
The coastal path was backed by the Welsh government, local authorities and the Countryside Council for Wales. It took five years to complete.
Moore's lens has captured the beauty of the coastline, such as here at Wharley Point, near Llanstephan.
On occasions the weather played its part. "One morning I spent an hour on the Mynydd on Bardsey Island as showers passed to the north of me and the sun shone from the south," says Moore. "A truly memorable experience."
"The Dee estuary is home to many thousands of wading birds in winter, although its hinterland is quite heavily industrialised," says Moore.
"At its breeding site, an arctic tern can change in a millisecond from a delightful, confiding little beauty into a vicious little monster," Moore says.
Industrial stretches of the Welsh coast can be surprisingly photogenic.
"Sometimes it was necessary to take photographs in a structured way, making appointments with relevant people," says Moore. "But many more were the result of plonking myself in a location then just walking and looking."
On the beach at Portmeirion, where the TV series The Prisoner was filmed, Moore captured this message.
Jeremy Moore's pictures will be on show at Rhyl Library Arts Centre from 9 June to 28 July 2012 and his book Wales: At Water's Edge, is published by Gomer Press.
