Today’s Picture: 22 May 20

Walker’s track on the Worm’s Head on the Gower Peninsula.

The idea here is to brighten the day for those people isolated indoors during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Last year, to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we went to the Gower Peninsula in Wales. This shot was taken on one of our many walks in this beautiful area.

If you find pleasure in this, please share it, so others can enjoy it, too. Thank you.

    1. It’s a lovely, wild place to be, Noelle. But you have to be aware of the tides, as you have to cross a tidal rock outcrop, quite wide, to get to the Head itself. It;s quite a tough walk, but definitely worth the effort!

  1. Now, that’s my kind of vista! I could perch anywhere in that scene day after day after day, with a book or a canvas, or even just a camera. Heck, it be a dream beyond imagining to have a house looking out over that vista.

    1. Sorry for the delay in response. My email was compromised and I had to wait until today for them to recover it and let me back in!
      On the day we vnetured onto this small island, we came across a woman lying flat on her stomach right on the edge of the cliff. As I approach, quietly so as not to startle her, I realised she was photographing some seals that were basking on the rocks below. I knelt and took a few pictures. Unfortunately, it was so very windy that day, none of my pics was sharp enough for reproduction! But it was great to see them.

        1. I was tempted to lie beside her, as she’d definitely chosen the optimum spot. I thought she might feel a little uncomfortable to have a strange man plop down beside her on the edge of the cliff, so I remained standing and a little way off. You could’ve got away with it though, Denise.

    1. I agree, Lynette. The sea is moody, unpredictable, capricious, but I always love being close to it. All life originated in the sea; perhaps we still carry that connection in our DNA.

        1. My biological father, who died 3 weeks before I was born, was a sailor, and my grandfather worked on the dredgers in the estuary of the River Humber, so I have the sea in my veins. Living on top of the cliff for a couple of years as a child is one of my lasting memories. We overlooked the North Sea, which can sometimes be pretty wild.

            1. I guess, as a collection of islands, the UK is bound to create more seafarers. Travel is in the blood for many of us. And you’ve carried your heretage over the pond to Canada, Lynette. It’s probably partly the reason you love flying.
