As you can read in my previous post I spent some time shooting a sunset and a sunrise in Manorbier the previous day. After a good full welsh breakfast I headed to my next destination in Marloes. The weather was really nice, warm and sunny. I wanted to discover the area walking. I parked my car at the National Trust car park and walked down to Marloes Sand beach. It took about 10 minutes to get to the coast path. The view is breathtaking from here. From Marloes Sand I walked about a mile towards Martins Havens and spent about an hour exploring this stretch of the coast. There were many gorgeous vantage points to take photos later in the golden hours.
Last week I went on a short photography trip to Pembrokeshire. I spent a night next to Tenby and three nights in Marloes. Unfortunately the weather was unusually crazy for August. I had to stay indoors whole day Friday and even Saturday morning because of the heavy rain and strong gales of 50 mph. I left home on Wednesday afternoon hoping for a sunset shoot somewhere on the coast. I had two options to choose from. The first was Skrinkle Haven Beach with its famous Church Doors rock formations in the neighbourhood of YHA Manorbier. But when I checked the area on SunCalc.org it turned out that the light wouldn't hit it nicely around sunset. So I decided to visit another location on the other side of Manorbier.
The "Holy Trinity" of seascape photography: low tide, sunrise or sunset and weather. They seldom come together. But once they do the photographer is usually well rewarded. That happened to me on last Saturday.
I spent a week Holiday in Cornwall. It wasn't especially a photo tour but Cornwall offers so much for landscape enthusiasts you just cannot come home without at least a long exposure.
