Rhosneigr Village is situated on the beautiful west coast of Anglesey, North Wales, and it has a lovely little beach, perfect for watching the sunset.

It’s true what they say about the golden hour (sometimes referred to as the “magic hour”), it really does produce the most beautiful photos, the light is softer, the tones are warmer, and the photos seem to glow when you look at them.
Wales in particular looks especially beautiful during this brief moment of time when the sun is low, shadows don’t seem to exist and all you can see are beautiful colors and hazy skies.

Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
