St Mary's is a small church on the hill behind Tintern abbey.  The church was destroyed by fire in the 1970's.  The Graveyard is well maintained but the church has been left to nature.  Beware of falling masonry

Any time of day at this location provides great interest, during the day when the tide is in, there are amazing detailed reflection shots.

Covehithe is dream of a location, it presumably used to be a fairly large town, but has fallen victim to the coastal erosion which plays havoc with this coastline.

A lovely location at the end of the very beautiful Llanberis pass, this location is reached by 3 footpaths each a short distance from the road, the footpath leading from Llyn Padarn is the steepest, with some steps up, the footpath from Pentre Castell road is the easiest,

Images can be taken at any time of year but sunset shots are best taken during the winter months. Although images can be taken at various stages of tide, it's most accessible at low tide (check local tides).

A nice location with large white marble boulders to the coastline as useful foreground, take care of the tide, it is very tricky to take a useable image of this castle when the tide is in, as viewpoints are cut off and steps down to the beach are also submerged. I went in

Historic  castle ruin on the Coast near to Ayr, now made safe, overlooking the isle of Arran and Ailsa Crag. Nearby is the rather unusual Electric Brae, not a photographic location, but fun for kids to try to work out what is going on..
