Tenby: Photo taken from the beach at low tide.
The old and new lifeboat stations are on the far left of the image. The old Lifeboat station (red roof) has been converted into a home. It featured in the program Grand Designs with Kevin McCloud.
Tenby (Welsh: Dinbych-y-pysgod, meaning little town of the fishes or little fortress of the fish) is a walled seaside town in Pembrokeshire, southwest Wales, on the western side of Carmarthen Bay.
The town walls were built by William de Valence, 1st Earl of Pembroke, in the late 13th century.
During the Wars of the Roses Henry Tudor, the future King Henry VII of England, sheltered within Tenby before sailing into exile in 1471.
There are more than 200 listed buildings and other structures in and around Tenby.
The Victorian revival architecture has been retained and maintained in a pastel colour scheme.

Interesting to see the beach at low tide. You must go rather far to have som swim. Very nice view of this hill with the house with red rood and strange construction close to it. Nice picture.

The panoramic format works perfectly; the eyes start naturally on the right hand side at the church tower and move naturally across the frame taking in all the different elements culminating in the slipway for the new lifeboat station. Light and colours are both very appealing and the clarity excellent.

Vilken vacker vy! Jag tycker mycket om linjen som går från vänster till höger i eleganta kurvor från havet upp till kyrktornet. Den våta leran har ett fint vågmönster som ger liv åt den tomma förgrunden. Bilden har mycket fint ljus och vackra färger.
