Yay! Am off to Wales next weekend.
Sgwd Hen, Coelbren Nant Llech by Tom Roberts
was there at the festival last weekend
magical special place
was down that way friday
good luck with the journey!
I went a few years ago after getting a bit obsessed with the place due to the Prisoner. It was lovely! One of the best holidays I've had that. We were meant to go to Morocco but the Spanish air traffic controllers went on strike so we did a week's camping trip around the perimeter/coast of all of Wales. Lots of driving, but it was fantastic. Such a beautiful country!
We had dinner in the restaurant at Portmeirion and it was quite fancy
My only decent 'Welsh' picture ... Wye Valley 2010
blydi tidy whiskers!
I could very happily move over the bridge to Wales.
I lied I found some more ... these are somewhere around the base of Snowden I think (2010).
And because it sums up Wales ... Barry Island in the rain 2013!
The Mill Pond, Pembroke Castle. Stunning in a generally rather soggy kind of way...
The site of the old Melingriffith tin plate works, in Coryton, north Cardiff - 30 second walk from a McDonalds and the M4...
Reminds me a bit of Pleasant Valley, down near Stepaside and Amroth here in Pembrokeshire, which is now a beautiful rural idyll, but houses the ruins of a quite significant Industrial Revolution ironworks...
Anywhere in particular?
Nash Point from Llantwit Major and Llantwit Major from somewhere near St. Donats. Heritage Coast is much-overlooked because the world class seascapes of Gower and Pembs are so close. Doesn't make it any less beautiful, though
Taken by my mate, Matt Cook
thumbs up from me too ....I live in Font-y-Gary , favorite walk ever if I'm in the mood is home to St Donats along the heritage coastal path and catch the train back from LLantwitt ..... Amazingly underused . often in spring or winter I'm the only one there. And then Nash point to Southerndown.
Some I've taken from earlier this year
Some idea of scale theres two people and a dog just left of centre
We get those great bars of cloud down here in Pembrokeshire, too - usually East/Westish.
I'd like to see an explanation of why any of the Welsh coast could be described as "world class".
You presumably haven't seen much of it, then?
(don't feed the troll, folks)
Here's some pics of mine:
A couple more on a similar theme:
I've seen some of it myself. I've seen some in photos. I've certainly not seen anything that qualifies as "world class" in either form but if it's really true I'd be interested to see what has escaped my attention.
It is always going to be a subjective matter. But if you have seen nothing in some of the photos that have been posted in this thread that could persuade you of the incredible beauty of some of Wales' coastal scenery, then I suspect you're unpersuadable, and probably best left to your curmudgeonly ways
