Llandudno pier from Happy Valley
Viewed from happy valley in Llandudno, the famous Victorian pier juts out into the Irish Sea. Llandudno is a Victorian seaside resort, town and community in Conwy County Borough, Wales. Llandudno, "Queen of the Welsh Resorts", a title first implied as early as 1864, is now the largest seaside resort in Wales, and lies on a flat isthmus of sand between the Welsh mainland and the Great Orme peninsula. Historically a part of Caernarfonshire, Llandudno was formerly in the district of Aberconway

Author's Comments:After the comments on the last one I thought I would try this one but hopefully without reference to being "genteel despite its proximity to Merseyside". Merseyside is where I live on Wirral and there is no need to disparage my home county.

Personally I prefer this image Frank, although there is much more foliage it just looks more intentional and seems to complement the image.
George  [Mar 17, 2014 at 07:14 PM]
Yes agree with Jeffrey, the foliage does seem more intentional and compliment the shot.
The branches on the left masking those horrid turbines while the gap in the branch on the right allows an almost unobstructed view of theta lovely pier.
Well done, like this one loads.

I have to say, of the images you have posted of Llandudno pier I prefer this one, and for the same reasons as George and Helen, The foliage does a very good job of framing the pier and concentrating the eye on the most important part of the image, Well taken Frank.

Well composed shot taken from a good vantage point, has it got a blue tint?, still a good image
