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.
I had a free weekend without my family at the beginning of August so I decided to go somewhere and have a photo weekend. I wanted to go to the seaside to take some seascapes. I can either go to Wales or down to Dorset, they are the same distance from home. The last couple of years I spent some time at the south coast, now I rather picked Wales. I wanted to visit the Gower peninsula where I’ve already been to but that wasn’t a photo orientated trip. This time I focused on it as a photography location.
After my last visit I decided to check the tide times of this beach in advance and put it in my calendar in case it matches with the sunset. Last Sunday it happened so and also the weather forecast promised sunny sky. I drove down with my family for a seaside stroll and also to take some sunset shots. It was a good decision.
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.
