Pentre Ifan, Sir Penfro, Cymru

Possibly the most famous Neolithic burial chamber in Wales, this dolmen dates from approximately 3,500BC. The cap stone is estimated to weigh 16 tonnes and is supported by the tips of only 3 of the upright stones, some 2.5m from the ground.

It was one of only three monuments in Wales to receive legal protection under the Ancient Monuments Protection Act 1882.

Pentre Ifan 1

Pentre Ifan, Sir Penfro, Cymru

This view of Pentre Ifan towards Carn Ingli gives a sense of the outstanding setting of this outstanding monument. The low rising sun has highlighted the stones whilst casting dark shadows speckled with patches of frost through the image.

Pentre Ifan 2

Poni Preseli, Cwm Garw, Sir Penfro, Cymru

I usually see more animals than people when I’m out and about. They come up to see what I’m up to and I chat away to them while surreptitiously retrieving my camera, however they always bolt when they see me place a black object in front of my face.

I’d passed a group of ponies on my way to a pair of standing stones and on my way back I was prepared with my camera already attached to my tripod set to its lowest position. As I neared the pony I placed the tripod on the ground, crouched down behind it and captured a few exposures as it came up to have a nose.

Poni Preseli

Moryd Towy, Llansteffan, Sir Gaerfyrddin, Cymru

It took a long time to get this image. When I first saw this scene of a standing stone on the beach before Llansteffan Castle, it was in a vaporous drizzle. I intended to return but the weather only got worse. When I next visited, nine months later, the weather was more favourable. However, although I had a string of clear mornings, I had to wait until high tide occurred sufficiently later than sunrise (the tides in this area being notorious for catching people off guard).

The stone (which has the great name of Carreg Fawr Nant Jack) isn’t as close to the castle as it appears here; I used a long lens to compress the scene. What I find remarkable is that there is nearly a thousand years separating the erecting of the castle by the Normans from the present, and maybe double that amount of time again separating the erecting of the stone from the time of the Normans.

Moryd Towy

Eglwys Sant Canna, agos i Henllan Amgoed, Sir Gaerfyrddin, Cymru

This site is marked on the map as St Canna’s Chair. It refers to a stone in the field besides the church on which people used to sit to be cured of certain ailments. They’d throw pins in a nearby well (which is no longer there), drink and sometimes bathe in the water and try to fall asleep on the chair. If they repeated this for a fortnight or more, then the curative effects were stronger. With a story like that I had to go see it for myself.

Any building being slowly reclaimed by nature, such as this, is always a worthy subject to photograph and to explore. The first thing you see from the church’s gateway, as your eyes are led down the long, near-overgrown path, is the church door just visible through the foliage.

The farthest gravestone from the viewer is in memory of Richard Thomas of Penback, Llangan, who died on the 11th of June 1897 and John Harries of the same address who died January 11th 1898. The inscription is in Welsh, and it was the last sentence etched into the gravestone that caught my attention – ‘AM HYNNY, BYDDWCH CHWITHAU YN BAROD‘ – ‘for this, be you also prepared’. Now then, you have been warned.

Pont Gwyrdd Cymru, Sir Penfro

The ‘Green Bridge of Wales’ is probably the most famous landmark of its type in the United Kingdom. The natural arch was created by constant erosion of the carboniferous limestone which forms the coastline. The arch is about 24m high and 20m wide.

Goleudy Pencaer, Ynys Meicel, Sir Penfro, Cymru

Strumble Head Lighthouse was erected in 1908 and is amongst the last lighthouses to be built in Britain. It has been fully automated since 1980 and access to the island is for authorised personnel only, however the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path passes right by it so the area enjoys frequent visitors.

Goleudy Pencaer

Derwen Andy, Sir Penfro, Cymru

I spotted this arboreal loner as I drove past a field and recognised it as the tree that photographer Andy Lee had taken a series of images of. ‘Derwen Andy’ translates as Andy’s Oak and is meant as a nod to the artist who’s work I admire.

Derwen Andy

“Church Rock”, Broad Haven South, Sir Penfro, Cymru

So named because it resembles a church when the tide is high, Church Rock must have been endowed its appellation from someone more pious than myself because to me it looks more like a shark fin.

It may look like I used a wide lens here but the opposite is true – the rock is quite far from the water’s edge which I was stood in. I didn’t get wet feet, but I did get very cold hands, I remember.
