GOWER GEM

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Many thanks for all your very kind comments & votes on yesterdays' Three Cliffs image.

Here is an image I took as we arrived, showing the over view of Three Cliffs Bay, Gower, Swansea. This view was featured by Catherine Jenkins on her program as the best view in Wales. As you can see the weather was beautiful when we arrived, and by the time we did the long walk down to the bay, the storm clouds came over as you can see in the two previous up-loads.

Not only that, this is where my parents had their honeymoon back in 1956, my Dad nearly drowned there, it has very strong under currents, he told me it took him two hours to swim free.

Hope you like this image ?

Chris
