Lighthouses & Sunset Photography – Talacre Beach – Roving Photographic Academy Evening

Point of Ayr Lighthouse is the northernmost point of mainland Wales.  It is situated immediately to the north of Talacre in Flintshire, at the mouth of the Dee estuary.  It is to the southwest of the Liverpool Bay Area of the Irish Sea.  This is our location for the Welshot Roving Academy Evening and will provide the photographer with a wide variety of shooting opportunities.  Starting with a short nature ramble through natural habitats and sand dunes we will make our way towards the shoreline where the dramatic Point of Ayr Lighthouse will be our backdrop.  From making long exposures, capturing a sunset to macro photography, the only limitation will be your imagination.
