The Marshes At Dusk

At the end of a cool but sunny Autumnal day, dusk settles peacefully over the estuary of the River Tywi. Only the mournful cry of a curlew can be heard permeating the stillness.

On The Trail Of The Cocklers

As a region famous for its cockling traditions, spanning back to Roman times, cockles are harvested from the sandy flats and are eaten locally and exported as a delicacy worldwide.

The View From The Jetty

As recently as 1905 a passenger ferry would set sail from here, and cross the tidal Tywi to the picturesque village of Llansteffan. As of 2013 discussions are afoot to reinstate it.

At Stackpole Quay

Part of a stunning nature reserve, Stackpole Quay was built in the 18th century to ship in goods to the big country house of Stackpole Court, and to ship out quarried limestone.

Crimson Seascape

Far and high above a tranquil landscape, a vapour trail reminder of the modern age.

Stranded

In UK waters, green starboard buoys tell mariners that they must 'keep to the left'.

Land of Castles and Princesses

Welsh castles are impressive structures and most were constructed in the 12th, or 13th, centuries. Many, like this one in West Wales, were built to keep out the local inhabitants.

The Tryst

Watching the sun go down over Worm's Head, on the beautiful Gower Peninsula.

Little Lighthouse

This small reflector lighthouse, built in 1842, looks out upon Gower and beyond.

Lady Of The Manor

In 1973 the Rare Breeds Survival Trust was formed, choosing the White Park cattle breed as its logo. Since then numbers of this breed surviving have risen from 60 to almost 800.

Borth's Hidden Gems

Sea Thrift (Armeria maritima), growing on the rocks near the pretty little Welsh seaside town of Borth. Also known as Sea Pink, this lovely flower thrives in salty environments.

Welsh Harbour

As busy as it gets down in West Wales, this relatively modern harbour and marina development is home to the bobbing boats of pleasure seekers and fishermen alike.

It's Behind You !

Popular with surfers, Whitesands beach in West Wales, boasts waves up to 10 feet high. At this beautiful, unspoilt spot, the impressive crags of Carn Llidi and Penbiri guard the bay.

The House

Newton House, an 18th century Gothic mansion in a remote corner of South West Wales. Visit on a Winter's day and dare you wander between it's ancient creaking walls ?

Just Good Friends

In my country, Wales, our woolly friends outnumber humans 3:1. No jokes please !

Bluebell Wood

A rich carpet of English bluebells brings back memories of spring ... and woodland walks.

All That Remains

Many a ship setting sail from North America heading for Dublin, Bristol, or even France, has, due to stormy, gale-ridden Irish Seas, foundered helplessly on the wild Welsh coast.

Forgotten

Talley's sacred burial ground is looked down upon by majestic ruins of its (c. 1187), abbey.

Welsh Sheep

Braving The Winter Waves

On a remote and desolate wind-ravaged beach somewhere in the beautiful wilds of West Wales, a lone surfer weighs up the pros and cons of riding the chill December tides.

Edge Of Bluebell Wood

Deer are not known to forage for bluebells, but, with the native English bluebell now under severe threat from its invasive Spanish relative, it pays to enclose precious habitats.

Medusa's Cottage

Standing eerily behind this little cottage in a remote part of West Wales, a lone survivor of a petrified forest. It's flailing imbs creating an illusion not unlike Medusa's serpent tresses.

The Woods

A haze of bluebells in a dappled shade wood. The epitome of an early summer in Britain.

Bosherston In Bleak Mid-Winter

Pembrokeshire's Bosherston Lakes are part of a National Nature Reserve. They are home to otters, wildfowl and dragonflies, but best known for their carpets of water lilies in June.
