I was wandering around the flower-filled hilltop meadow above Caswell Bay late yesterday afternoon. After an hour or so chasing butterflies, I took the coastal footpath leading from Caswell around to Langland Bay. I looked back to see some interesting colours developing in the sky:
Hoping a nice sunset might develop, I decided to linger a little longer than I had intended, and climbed up onto the nearby Caswell Bay Golf Course, from where I had a grandstand view of the glorious show:
I didn't have my tripod with me, so had to rest the camera on my camera bag, which led to these grasses appearing prominently in the foreground:
I changed my camera position slightly, and removed a few of the more intrusive grass stems, to give me a clearer view of the changing colours:
I switched from my 17-40mm lens to the 70-200mm for this shot of Cefn Bryn:
It was now pretty dark, so I walked along the golf course, before descending to Langland Point, where I took one more shot - a 30-second exposure looking westwards along the south Gower coastline:
It was certainly one of the better sunsets I've seen in a while!
