Gower Gorse 2

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 24 April 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A rather steep bit on the edge of the coast path (just for Rob) above Caswell Bay.
My postings are likely to be sporadic over the next couple of weeks as I do my level best to be in as many places at once as I can while spring lasts.

Another stunning scene of natural beauty, Grouser. Captured superbly. Such a great perspective here

Ok... really pretty... and heights don't really bother me but when I had a quick look at this one... I pulled myself back from falling... hahahaha...
If there is no fence etc in front of me, I will not get close to the edge... so this is a good one...:)

The place's name is Hurlingham, isn't it? Magical image. I could have taken this too, but then there might have been some extra decoration on the rocks below :)

@dobbino: You are tempting me with a crusty old pun about the Pub at the bottom of the cliff, 'The Do Drop Inn' but I will resist.

A fine look (and steep) view of the coastline. One misstep could be disastrous here it appears. Nice shooting.

You´re Definately whetting my appetite for a visit to the Gower coast when I´m over in Wales this July/August.. Great shot.

24 Apr 2009 4:30pm

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Some lovely beaches there and the coast path is great walking as is the trip out along Worm's Head which you need to do at low tide.

Bookfool from Mississippi, United States

I had no idea there was such pretty coastline in Wales. When I was there, it was heavily overcast. Pretty, but the water looked steely gray. Have fun with your spring shooting!

@Bookfool: Lots of beautiful coast all round Wales oh Bookish one and lucky for me it's our nearest coastline.

The colours are terrific grouse, it's almost as good as Madeira !

the scary thing is you can see the layers- and they are at almost right angles. which means, the earth constantly shifts and moves. everything we know, even the pyramids, will one day be gone. but enjoy the blue, greens and yellows.

The colour of the water is superb!! What a great shot!

25 Apr 2009 6:39am

@Linerberry: It's high tide. When the tide goes out it's wonderful golden sand down there.

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

A vertiginous view, very nice colors.

You must be either retired or rich, either way another good image, this one with height and colour to offset the left hand side of the foreground

25 Apr 2009 7:12am

@P J W Miller: Not quite retiring (retirement is not part of my game plan) and certainly not rich in money, but I try to get about a bit. There's a lot to see out there and not a great deal of time to see it in, so that focuses the mind somewhat.

gavin hart from Gold Coast, Australia

Another exceptionally beautiful sunny photo and high vantage point. The color of the water is very refreshing. Nicely composed.
