‘After The Rain Has Passed’
This photo is taken in April after the windy day with lots of showers. At the end of the day the bay near Penmon was perfect for his shot.
This photo is taken as a time-lapse of 2-3 hours. The waves near the Penmon were dropping in all directions and created this amazing effect.
A photo taken in just 20 minutes. As the author says, he had to compete with the local seals so he can catch some great weaves crushing down.
This is the real magic that happens in the sea near Penmon. The luminescent plankton creating this lighting underwater effect. It looks like watching the aurora borealis just in blue light under the sea.
This is taken another day at the Trwyn Du Lighthouse near Penmon. It is an incredible scene.
The magic continues when the “electric like waves” are crushing on the beach. As Kris says, “Who needs Mauritius when you have this on your doorstep”. Breathtaking, don’t you think?
The same day Kris was throwing some rocks in the see to see and capture the plankton excited. The effect was: underwater electric bombs. As he says, the plankton was present near the bay for 5 days.
