My visit to Rhossili in my previous post was marked by grey and dreary weather, with barely a hint of sunshine, so the day was not ideal for landscape photography, to say the least. However, I did take a few snaps, which may be even more dull than my usual efforts!
Here's the view from the base of the cliffs where I was photographing the Purple Sandpipers, looking back towards Rhossili Down:
Looking towards Worm's Head:
Worm's Head again, with a barnacle-covered ship's anchor in the foreground:
A couple of shipwrecks. I'm not sure which ships they are, but I think Adam Tilt might know:
As I began walking back, the wind got up, blowing sand in horizontal streaks across the open beach:
Rhossili Down, with the Old Rectory:
The wreck of 'The Helvetia', with the small island of Burry Holms in the distance:
And the same wreck with Worm's Head as a backdrop:
Trudging up to Rhossili village, I looked back towards 'The Worm':
Finally, a shot of Rhossili Down:
Apparantly, a Snow Bunting was seen atop Rhossili Down on that day, so perhaps I should have gone up there!
