Moryd Towy


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)┬áisn’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.

Limited edition of 100.
