.... this viewpoint without taking a picture. The coast path travels above Caswell bay looking down over a couple of near vertical drops and I have to take it every time.

The people on the beach put this to scale..otherwise it doesn't seem as big. What a lovely shot and nice rocks in the foreground. What a view!

Excellent photography! You've got some exceptional reflexes in the sand. A powerful composition with the foreground of rocks that go down to the sand. A small people that humanize the scene and explain very well the great depths of the cliff.

I am not surprised! It is absolutely beautiful! I love it. Is this spot far from your home? I would be there all the time if it is. Wow, I am very jealous! :) great shot!

@Marion: Just about two and a half hours drive, We couldn't be much further from the sea where we live, but we live in a small country. Although to be exact Wales is another country as we live in England :)

Christel from Köln, Germany

Good afternoon Grouser,
the beach view is great. The naturalness of the reflections and colors are well preserved and reproduced brilliantly. <<As to your question about my hedge, I answer: it is a hornbeam hedge. Before, I had drawn a garden with this hedge.>> I wish you a nice day and thank you for your nice comments and fidelity.
Dear greetings Christel

I'm glad you got one-more-shot to share with us. The tiny figures seem essential to help us grasp the immense size of the beach area. The tipped up strata of the rock is very impressive. Fine image.

I'm glad to see you putting Marion right about the location mate,if you continue taking such beautifull shots of the Mumbles we might have to appoint you as the official Gower snapper.

Wow, those clouds are good. The rocks in the foreground keep grabbing the attention, it's unfortunate that there are such natural beauties plonked on a beach.

Those rocky crags down there look like small mountains which gives the effect that you must be really high above. It's a magnificent view, I can't blame you for re-shooting it and often!

All the elements are there to make a very sensitive point of view: people as birds and clouded shadows and a perfect and beautyfull colored contrast. Love this!
