Sunset at Rhossili Bay and Worms Head

Worms Head and Rhossili

A few weeks ago, I ran a Landscape Photography Workshop that ended up at Rhossili Down. Whilst there, I spotted a great patch of wild flowers so at the next possible opportunity, I headed out there for sunset. When I got there, though, I was a little disappointed to find livestock have pooed all over it! Luckily, there were other wild flowers nearby so I set the camera up and waited. I really wanted the ……

Whiteford Sands

A few weeks ago, I went out to Whiteford Sands with Emma Jones. We were hoping for a spectacular sunset but were let down. On the walk out, we spotted some periwinkles that had been exposed by a low tide and had been crawling along the sand – see Emma’s blog post for photos. Whilst she was photographing the periwinkles, I spotted a small patch of barnacles.

Langland Bay

At the beginning of the month, I set the alarm early and headed out to Langland Bay for sunrise. The position of the sun meant I couldn’t go for the angle I wanted, so instead I headed out to Snaple Point. There was a smattering of sea thrift around, but not swathes of it unfortunately. I used my wide angle lens to include the beach huts, the sea thrift and the sun.

Three Cliffs Bay from Pennard

One evening last week, I met up with Emma Jones (who joins me at my exhibitions) at Southgate. When we arrived, it was raining heavily but the sun was out and lighting up the landscape beautifully. The rain stopped and the sun went in for the rest of the evening, but we headed out anyway. Despite the unfavourable weather conditions, I’m still pleased with what I photographed:

We then climbed ……

A Stormy Three Cliffs Bay

With bad weather forecast last week, I picked the only day that looked good for sunrise and headed out to Penmaen Burrows. As usual, the forecast was wrong and I got rained on rather than seeing clear skies. However, this time it worked in my favour. Here is one photo I took whilst getting rained on:

Needless to say, the forecast was wrong for the rest ……

Caswell Bay and Mewslade Bay

I haven’t updated this blog for a while, mainly as I haven’t had much news for a while as I’ve been recovering from a chest infection. I’m pleased to say that I have now fully recovered! However, I did manage to get out a couple of times whilst I was unwell, once to Caswell Bay and another to Mewslade Bay. I probably shouldn’t have gone to Caswell when I did as the climb up the ……

Bracelet Bay

Last weekend, I took the family to Bracelet Bay to have a play on the beach – it was absolutely freezing and, contrary to the Met Office forecast who said clear skies, it was rather cloudy. However, the sky look stunning especially for mid-morning. I had my camera with me, of course, and took a few photos.
