The weather promised me that it the clouds would go for the sunset, but an hour before the sun would dip below the horizon line, it was still pretty cloudy.
I decided it was worth the risk, and the trip out, so I put some clothes back on (I’d had a shower and gotten straight into my jim jams from the Abbey walk earlier in the day) and off we went up the hill out of the valley to the car park at the top.
How patiently I waited when we got to the car park at the top! I wandered around trying to find a good patch of heather, set up shop and waited. The longer I waited the more the clouds parted.
Every day there has been a rainbow at around the same time (just before sunset) in the same place. How bizarre!
The weather said it was going to be cloudy but sunny this evening, so I decided to go out to shoot the sunset. My idea was backlit heather. When I got to the place I was going to take the photo there were a few other people there. Some had been out and were going back to their car, others were there with camera in hand – maybe they’d had the same idea as me?
We were all to be disappointed if that was the case though, as the clouds were all along the horizon and so there wasn’t really a sunset worth photographing. This was actually the second shot I took, but I thought it wouldn’t work out so I carried on shooting. Turns out this was the only decent shot I had.
Today the weather forecast said it would rain heavily all afternoon. As seems to be the theme of this holiday, the weather forecast was wrong. Anyway, we set out with getting back before the weather turned in mind.
Getting to South Stack was straight forward, about a 15 minute drive from where we are stopping.
It was quite quiet, which is just what I like. Sadly though, my lighter ran out whilst we were there and so I couldn’t set off my smoke bomb 😦
On the way back to the car, a random herd of goats appeared! Naturally this involved whipping my skirt on and getting amongst them 😉
