Beautiful images – I love the colours and shapes of the rocks as well as the reflection of the landscape on the wet beach. Even more reason for me to plan for another visit in Wales – this time with space to view some of those sights.
Much love – hope you enjoyed the winter-sun!
Yes I was really attracted to the colour of the rocks and the sea life that had colonised them, old and new coming together in such a beautiful way. I’m the same as you, I see all these wonderful photos from around the world and it makes me want to visit so bad. I saw some pictures of the wilderness mountains in Montana yesterday and it broke my heart 😦 Maybe I’ll get to go one day 🙂
If that area of Montana is calling you, then you will make it there, for sure. 🙂
Sometimes I see landscapes and feel like they are calling me. Ireland and the UK are full of them, actually…
I’ve been to Cardiff, before, but only stayed one night. And unfortunately it was that stretch of our UK-tour where I basically saw nothing – except for the motorway, maybe. So, I gotta come back!
As for the rocks: anybody who calls a rock a dead thing does not quite understand life, in my personal opinion. 😉
(Well, who does fully understand life, annyways…)
I think that there is a greater understanding and acceptance in science of the crucial interaction between the living and the non-living elements of the earth – deep ecology has talked about this for a long time, people like Leopold, Arne Naesse and Satish Kumar. It’s all about recognising the importance of everything and having enough respect not to carry on destroying it. We’re still losing the battle though which is ironic, because for human beings to continue to live on this planet we need the things that we are destroying. It’s even more ironic that we know this and yet we continue to do it. Poverty and over population plays a huge role in this of course.
It’s an irony that was always so very obvious for me (I had some good teachers along the way) and it sometimes made me feel desperate that nothing seemed to change.
But I agree with you, there is a deeper understanding emerging and establishing in science. Although I come more from the “intuitive side” it makes me very happy to see that this bridge to more understanding on both “sides” is being built. It becomes more and more obvious that working together on maintaining and careing for this earth holds the key (= acknowledging that everything is important & respecting it – I love that!)
I’ll have to google those names you mentiuoned and look up more info about deep ecology. I believe I once read a little series of articles on that…
Yes, nice color. Winter sun is almost always very welcome and brings color to a rather drab world.
Yes indeed, the colours are a bit drab on the coastal fields and cliffs, but the rocks and rock pools on the beach remain very colourful 🙂
That greenish colour…might that be limestone? Just now, I made the connection (“lime”). I wonder if that’s why they call it that, because of the colour. Whatever it is, it looks beautiful. If you took that middle photo and did a slight rotation and a zoom in, you could make it look like those rocks were high cliffs and the barnacles were all rock climbers doing extreme sports.
Yes that would be a good way to look at it Anneli 🙂 It’s not limestone, it’s actually a green silty mudstone dating from the Devonian period, and apparently it appears here in West Wales and also in Devon and Cornwall, possibly hence the name, I’m not sure 🙂
Thanks for that. I guess “limestone” would have been too easy. Looks pretty though, even with a name like mudstone.
Beautiful detail on the rocks!
Thank you, yes the colour and life of the rocks caught my attention the most, I found them quite mesmerising, glad you like 🙂
I like the post all the details and content used in this post are helpful to peoples which read your post.
