A New Wine Cymru church conference found my wife Liz and I travelling far from our home in North Wales, down to the mysterious and unexplored (by us anyway) South Wales coast.
The conference ended on Saturday afternoon, and seeing as we'd driven over four hours to get here we decided to stay a couple of days extra and take a look around the Gower Peninsula, as we'd been told it was quite nice.
One of our 'go to' destinations was Rhossili beach, which proved to be very nice indeed.
Rhossili beach is bounded at its southermost end by the huge rock outcrop of Worm's Head, joined to the tip of the Gower Peninsula by a low lying rock shelf which is passable only a couple of hours either side of low tide.
Watching over the Worm's Head passage are the volunteers of the coastwatch, and I shot the frames for this panoramic collage of the scene close to the lookout station high on the cliffs over the causeway.
The picture was taken on an incoming tide, and you can see the low lying rocks are already nearly underwater.
Just a magnificent and dramatic piece of Wales' coastline.
