Working in Pembrokeshire gives me plenty of opportunities to explore the beautiful coastline. After watching the weather all day, I chanced a window in the rain and wind and drove up to Whitesands. Within 5 minutes of my arrival I was soaking wet. However, I still had around 3 hours to explore the area and get a general feel for it. Weather wise, it wasn't looking good. I could see banks of rain coming in from the Southwest, so resigned myself to having a good look around without coming away with some images. The St David's peninsular is another of those places that instantly becomes a favourite. It has beautifully clean beaches, colourful heather and rocky outcrops. I have fallen in love with it already.
After a good few hours walking the coastal path, I returned to Porthmeigan beach, with the sun starting to break through the clouds and promising a sunset – a very welcome colour after such a grey day. After a quick set up and walk around I found many aspects which promised a nice picture but settled on this one. I got close to the incoming tide which swept in as a shallow foam, providing backwash lines as it ebbed away.
I had a wonderful time at this location and will visit again. If I have learned one thing, it is that whatever the weather, there is always the chance that the condition you want could be right around the corner, you just have to be there.
