Three Cliffs Bay #5

Rock details at Three Cliffs Bay, Gower Peninsula, South Wales coast

The story behind this image

A couple of days mini-break found my wife Liz and I exploring and enjoying the beauties of the Gower Peninsula on the South Wales coast near Swansea.

One place we wanted to see was Three Cliffs Bay, having watched an episode of the BBC's Weatherman Walking series which showed off this lovely spot.

Well we weren't disappointed, as Three Cliffs Bay, whether viewed from above or down at sea level was absolutely stunning, with dramatic rock formations, high cliffs and a pristine wave washed beach.

This image, taken while walking along the beach, shows a lovely combination of colours, shapes and textures that I spotted in the rock formations at the base of the cliffs.
