This one is rather late coming as I’ve been back a while now but it relates to an area I love and I picked up one or two quite good images despite the weather not being ideal. The Gower is in Wales and is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area is not large but has a good variety of scenery/habitat within it and is definitely beautiful. We parked the car at Southgate and initially walked east along the cliffs. There was no rain at the time but the day was not that good.
We then walked down to the beach, just under the three cliffs, which is called Pobbles beach. The image above was taken from there looking south west to Oxwich Point. As can be seen there was quite a haze but with the promise of some light in the distance maybe.
The light didn’t arrive indeed it looked rather more threatening as time went by. However this shot (also on Pobbles Beach) does catch something of the beauty of the area with lovely beaches and coastline.
Walking back up the cliff the three cliffs themselves stand out quite well. I’d certainly like to go back and catch them in better light. Oxwich is in the distance.
The day stayed fairly dull (although the previous day had been far worse – wandering Swansea city in the rain is not my idea of fun). However the end of the day saw a slight clearance and so we started chasing the evening light. The above pair are taken on the western end of the peninsula in the Llangennith area and the other blog on the Gower will be about that area.
Finally, heading back, I stopped the car rather suddenly for this shot. The colours and outline looked very interesting to me.
