Nash Point

15 Jul 2021

I remember the drive we did from Dallas to Salt Lake City being defined in a large part by the changing geology of the landscape as you moved across the South West states. I was surprised to find our trip to South West Wales was similarly defined by geology too: the curved strata in the cliffs at Little Haven, the dramatic protrusions of rock on Marloes Sands beach, and then again here at Nash Point which felt more like a set from a fantasy or sci-fi movie than something real. Even up close the rocks felt like they must surely be cast in fibre glass or cut from foam ready for Peter Jackson to make a scene from his next epic trilogy here.

Capturing this scene I found quite challenging - trying as I am to cram in both the epic Nash Point itself whilst simultaneously trying to get the long sweeping cliff to show this isn’t just a one off bit of landscape. Whilst the people aren’t as elegantly posed as one might like, I’m glad they’re there to give some sense of scale.
