View of Rhossili beach on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales on 23rd December 2013

I spent Christmas week last year at Rhossili on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales. The weather was wet and wild, and resulted in some spectacular effects on Rhossili beach. These pictures were taken on 23rd December and show some of the designs and textures in the sand which had been separated out into a surface component of pinkish-yellow sand, and an underlying layer of darker almost black sand, sifted and sorted by storm waves, and rearranged by the wind and driving rain.

  1. Thank you, Adrian. Rhossili is always awe-inspiring no matter what the weather. I don’t think it’s possible to take a bad shot of it from this point.

    Happy New Year and Happy Hill Walking for 2015!
