Four Beaches in One Day

Caswell Bay

It was without any planning or warning that we took the day off work yesterday. Well, I say day off, we took the day off from work to work. Instead of opening the shop, we drove down to Oxwich Bay – Oxwich is a difficult beach to photograph and one we get asked for all the time so we decided to see what we could do. With the sun peaking out from behind the clouds, ……

Orion, the Moon, Tor Bay and Oxwich Bay

This is a follow on from the previous blog post when I went out to shoot stars on Gower. I had left Emma and headed down to Penmaen Burrows on my own – I was pleased to see there weren’t any more cars in the car park, so it meant I had the place to myself.

Oxwich Bay

A few weeks ago, I took a trip out to Penmaen Burrows to overlook Oxwich Bay for sunset with Emma.

Here are a couple of new ones – you can click on them to access the buying options but please note that ……

Pobbles Beach and Around

Yesterday afternoon, I drove to Southgate to walk to Pobbles Beach for sunset. The BBC cloud cover forecast said there would be no cloud at all, so it was no surprise that there was a little too much cloud for a decent sunset. I did take a few photos though.

Oxwich Bay Sunrise

I got up at 4am again this morning and drove to Oxwich Bay. The roads reminded me of 28 Days Later when everything is deserted and no-one’s around – there weren’t any ‘infected’ though, thankfully! It was very cold on the beach even with hat and gloves! The pre-sunrise sky was fantastic though! Once the sun had risen, the light wasn’t great so I went back to the car and was home by 6:30am!
