Ar Hyd Y Nos – Meinir Gwilym
I wanted to start the week with these pictures, this sun. Before anything else, I wanted to precise that I took them mid-January, on a Sunday afternoon and in the order I’m posting them. I’m precising it because if you look at the photos you might think that the sun disappeared and came back but it’s just the way light worked with the clouds.
If there’s one thing I’ll never get tired of is watching the sea and even less if there’s the cliffs with it; I love this spectacle, it’s fabulous. Watch how nature shapes and coordinate the elements, and how the sea and the wind outline the seaside.
The sun and the clouds were quite present on this day, accompanied by an icy wind and a nice mist; all these elements together gave a delightful spectacle with a cherry on the cake: the sun reflecting in the sea.
If we ever go somewhere with a cliff, we have to go on it, we can’t not do it, to gain height. From there, the air already pure (Nash Point is quite deserted) is even icier than down the cliff and it was hard to take off our gloves to take pictures. The view is breathtaking, you can see how the wind has shaped the grass on the second picture. Beautiful wavelets.
I also loved the shadows we’ve done thanks to the light. I can’t really explain it but I really like this photo of Le Barbu, his shadow and the sun probably, with the sea. I admit that we didn’t stay long because it was freezing but at the same time, it was so pretty we didn’t want to leave. Anyway, we went back down, crossed the little river and took a look at the sea on the rocky beach, again.
We went on the other cliff to take a closer look at the lighthouse, and if you’re interested into it, you can get married there… Nice views, right? I would even say dream views if I dared…
I can’t go for a walk in Wales without seeing sheep and taking pictures of them, some might say “hey, why do you keep taking pictures? They’re all the same!” but, they are not! This one seems very nice, a bit cheeky, innit?
Oh dear, I just though I didn’t tell you where Nash Point is! This beautiful place is at Saint Donats, less than a 50mn drive from Cardiff and I’m telling you, it worths these minutes. The breath of fresh air you get is so pure and refreshing! We went there on a Sunday afternoon and honestly it’s one of the best ways to end the week and recharge your batteries for the week to come. Sunset came early, around 3:30pm so we’ve waited to say goodbye to Mister Illumination and went back to Cardiff.
I hope you enjoyed the tour, I really wanted a touch of softness to start the week. I wish you a lovely Monday. Des bisous
