Last weekend me and the family took a short break to the absolutely gorgeous coastal village of Llangrannog in West Wales. Of course, I had to get some photos of Llangrannog and chose to use the Fuji X-Pro1 on my little trip. We were only there 48 hours, and that included a trip to A&E so unfortunately I didn’t get as much time as I would have liked with the camera in hand.
As you may know, a review I wrote for Professional Photographer on the Fuji X-Pro1 is now in the shops and for anyone considering purchasing the system I would encourage you to take a look at the article – especially if you are a wedding photographer. I really wanted to get more photos of Llangranog and I intend going back later in the year to do some more photography there. Almost definitely with the Fuji X100 and Fuji X-Pro1.
“The seaside village of Llangrannog lies on the coast of Ceredigion, in a narrow valley which the river Hawen makes its rapid way into Cardigan Bay. Another small stream, Nant Eisteddfa flows into the sea, but is mostly hidden and emerges as an outfall near the boat ramp.
In the lower part, the valley is so steep as to form a virtual ravine, the river Hawen falling at one point as a waterfall.
The village is spread along the valley, the older settlement, including the church, being above the waterfall, hidden from view of the sea .The lower or Beach village was built in later, safer years and for many years was a small flourishing commercial port.”
The above is an extract from “The Story of Llangrannog”, by Mervyn Davies, published by E.L. Jones & Sons, Cardigan.
Llangrannog is simply beautiful. The newly opened Wales Coastal Path curbs this bay and I would encourage anyone visiting this part of the world to take a visit.
Here are a few photos of Llangrannog taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 whilst on my little trip:
