Photographer's Note

A little of the geology of Dunraven Bay. The point sticking out into the Bristol Channel is Trwyn-y-Wytch, The Witch's Nose. This hardy piece of coastline has survived whilst the remaining cliffs are eroded easily by the constant battering of the sea. The main cliffs are made up of sedimentary standstones which are quite soft, but the Witch is volcanic. The outcrop has bent the sandstone strata almost back on itself, such was the violence of the upwelling.

The high tide and the low sun caught the sandstone cliff and foreground rocks, whilst a cloud left the Wytch is threatening shadow.
