Rhossili Time Lapse #2

The story behind this video

A couple of days' holiday on the beautiful Gower Peninsula on the South Wales coast found my wife Liz and I exploring the delights of Rhossili and the Worm's Head.

The view out over Rhossili was just stunning, so I made it a priority to come back here after our evening meal to film the sunset and the receding tide.

The evening didn't disappoint, with dramatic clouds streaming overhead in the stiff breeze and huge rollers sweeping up the beach as the sea slowly edged backwards.

In the end I stayed much longer than I was anticipating, utterly captivated by the majestic scenery unfolding below and above me.

It was a good job it was only a ten minute drive back to our lodgings afterwards!

I also took a couple of live action real time videos of the view out over Rhossili beach which you can watch at these links: Rhossili #1 and Rhossili #2
