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.
