      1. I believe that Rhossili Bay has been in the top ten beaches in UK, Europe and the World! Well deserved, in my opinion. I’ve only recently discovered your blog, Hugh, and I find your blogging tips extremely useful. Many thanks!

    1. It was freezing cold that morning, so that fire would have defiantly warmed up my hands had it been there. But I was blessed with this lovely view from Mother Nature and a pair of warm gloves.

  1. Wow Hugh!! What an amazing picture. It’s beautiful. I’ve never seen a sky in person that looked so low. The only part of that poem I remember is red sky at night sailor’s delight.

    1. I’ve always referred to it as ‘Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight. Red sky in the morning, shepherd’s are warning.’ It could be because I am from Wales, where there were many shepherds once. Not so much these days, but I love the different takes.

      Thanks so much, Lea.

      1. What an interesting difference Hugh. I grew up on Long Island Sound and spent summers at the beach. As a kid my grandparents had a boat that we would go out on, on the weekends. My grandmother is the one who always said “sailors”, and that makes sense for folks living there.

        I’m sure shepherds needed to watch the sky also. It makes sense either way. I love stories like this.

  2. I love sunsets… maybe even more than rainbows. And this one is one of the most stunning sunsets I have ever seen. Fantastic photo, Hugh. The mix of deep orange to light cream yellow framed by these present grey is amazing!

    1. I like sunsets too, Erika, but not as much as sunrises. This was a sunrise (rather than a sunset). Living where I do, we only get to see sunrises. Our sunsets are out of view because of the position we live. On the morning I took this photo, it was freezing cold. I had to put my gloves back on immediately. I don’t tend to see the summer sunrises as they are too early (even for me).

      1. OMG, of course, you wrote it! I was so enchanted that I did not even read the title. Sorry, about that. But thank you that you risked freezing your fingers off for the photo.
        I am lucky that we see both sunrise and sunset at any season… theoretically… I usually don’t see the sunrises in summer either… lol
