Hiraeth – Trwyn Du and Puffin Island

IMG_4827(This print is now available in my Etsy shop)

I just love lighthouses and this one is very possibly my favourite,  It is situated in one of my favourite spots in the universe on beautiful Anglesey (Mother of Wales).  This is the place to go for a spot of solitary consideration.  This shot also features puffin island.  When travelling along the North Wales coast road the first view of puffin island greets me and welcomes me home.

If you listen carefully you will often hear many a Welsh man (and woman) whisper of something know as Hiraeth. It has no direct English translation but is sort of like a longing, nostalgia and wistful yearning for Wales.   This series is my own way of embracing my feelings of hiraeth and sharing just a little bit of my magical Wales with you.

If you feel your own hiraeth welling up inside and fancy a bit of Wales on your walls then why not pop on over to my Etsy shop to see what you can find?

  1. I’ve always loved lighthouses, for much the same reason you write about, and this is a really nice photo to capture some of that sensibility. There are a bunch of lighthouses around the world, many in the middle of nowhere, where you can stay overnight in lieu of a hotel, and I’ve often thought about how great it would be to truly get away from everything.
