Llansteffan in moonlight from the sea

This is one of my favourite paintings. It shows Llansteffan in moonlight from the sea. It was painted from a recollection of coming over Carmarthen Bar into the estuary one evening. 

The profile of the castle and headland is very different from the seaward side. I have seen it from this position on many occasions but haven't sketched it surprisingly, well I suppose I was sailing at the time.

Ferryside is in the distance on the right. To the left of the Castle is Scotts Bay.  The painting is sold
