Photographer's Note

Rhossili Bay in the Gower is a very beautiful beach. The only trouble with the place is theres golden sand as far as the eye can see, and little in the way of rocks on the beach to use as foreground. The solution to this is the wreck of the ship Helvetia. Its remains lie stranded high on the beach among small pools of water. Wonderful for photographers - but it is also the first thing that most beach visitors head towards. Unfortunately for me that meant footsteps - lots of 'em! I arrived early and researched the location; found my shot for sunset and then wondered off to check out other parts of the beach. By the time I had got back people and dogs had left marks all throughout the sand. I made a mental note to return another itme when the tide is just going out, but then set up my camera to make the best of this trip. The footsteps aside, I really love the small pool snaking through the shot, pointing towards Worm's Head in the distance. I also tried hard to get some of the red sky in the reflection - I achieved it just, after a lot of moving forwards and backwards, up and down!
