An absolute gem of a place.  I thought the Dorset coast was good, but this place is magical.  So much to shoot.  If you fancy a visit, drive to Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire and then head West to Dale, you will pick up signs to Marloes.

On arrival at the car park there is about a kilometer to walk, but you wont notice it as once you get to the cliffs your camera will be glued to your face!

Once on the beach, head north to the dragons teeth rocks and enjoy exploring.  Some points to be aware of:

  • You are on the edge of the Atlantic - it could be windy - dress accordingly.
  • Check the tide time.  During this shoot, i knew when high tide was, but I didn't realise how quickly it came in.  The entire area in the shot above was flooded in 20 minutes.  Could have been embarrassing!!
  • Even the most benign beautiful beaches can turn on you - ALWAYS let someone know where you are, particularly in a location as remote as this.
  • Take a few microfibre cloths with you to keep your camera clean and make sure you wash the feet and legs of your tripod afterwards, this will save any corrosion forming.

This was a really amazing place to visit and I will go again as soon as the opportunity arises.  The wonderful (but changeable) light meant I had to adjust my settings on the fly, so I gained plenty of experience.
