Here at Lyons we know all too well the beautiful scenes and landscapes that surround our holiday parks in North Wales, with a picture-perfect landscape around every corner. Here at Lyons we wanted to share some of the most beautiful images of North Wales prior to you visiting us so we scoured the online world and came up with four fantastic images which you can see below:
1. The South Stacks are in the beautiful area of north-west of Holyhead and are one of the most popular natural attractions in the area. The lighthouse seen in this striking black and white image acts a marker for boats that are crossing the Irish Sea from the ports of Holyhead and Dun Laoghaire. The area is also popular for its dramatic cliffs and abundant wildlife which include porpoise, seals, native birds and a variety of fauna and flora.
2. This dramatic image by Stuart Madden captures the imposing Mount Snowdon from Moel Tryfan in Rhosgadfan, North Wales. Stuart manages to capture the varied colours that awash this area of North Wales, with the burnt oranges, browns and dark greens making for a truly dramatic image.
3. Another fantastic snap from Stuart Madden who has well and truly nailed his landscape photography compositions, this time the Alwen Reservoir is his focus. Located near Pentre-Llyn-Cymmer in Conwy County Borough this image showcases the vibrant colours that surround this body of water which is home to wide array of birds and wildlife. In the photo Stuart manages to capture multiple aspects of the landscape from the moorland heath, luscious green trees, dramatic Welsh skyline as well as the 27-metre-tall Alwen Dam which frames the image perfectly.
4. This striking photo from Robert J Heath looks more like it was taken in the Mediterranean but was in fact shot in the Lleyn Peninsula coast on a 35mm camera.As well as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Llŷn is also listed in the Register of Landscapes of Outstanding Historic Interest in Wales. With large areas of the land remaining virtually untouched for thousands of years. Many animals call this area home and archaeological and architectural features found here tell an unbroken story which began in prehistoric times. This image is slightly torturous to look at during this time of year as it makes us want to grab our snorkel and mask and dive right in! We hope this gives a small indication on the beauty that awaits you when staying at one of our holiday parks in North Wales.
