RESIDENTS and visitors have been making the most of the warm weather by heading to the beach.

Neil Anthony Johansson took the photograph – of Rhyl Beach – as part of a #LoveRhyl tourism project.

Neil has been selected alongside nine other amateur photographers as a Rhyl Instagram champion.

Each week, the Journal is featuring the work of one of the champions.

"I am honoured to have been chosen as an Instagram champion for Rhyl," Mr Johansson said.

"I have lived in Rhyl all my life and have been taking photographs here for the last 10 years. I work in the town centre and carry my camera with me all the time, which means that I find that I take photographs of Rhyl almost every day. I love Rhyl - it is where my passion for photography began and I find the town to be a constant source of inspiration.

"Through my photos, I have documented many aspects of Rhyl that have changed over the years including the old fairground, the outside of the Sun Centre and the Children’s Village.

"I spent time photographing the old Rhyl High School and subsequently produced a book containing 72 photographs. To me Rhyl is more than just a seaside town; I feel that it has a cinematic quality which I aim to capture in my photographs.”

Sunny spells are set to continue this week, but changes are coming.

The Met Office has forecast: "Next weekend will stay mainly fine and very warm.

"Sunny spells are likely for most of us but there will be some rain in the far northwest and a few showers further South. Later on Sunday and in the following week, the weather is likely to turn more changeable, breezier and somewhat cooler."
