Photographer's Note

Worms Head (Penrhyn-Gwyr) is the western most point on the Gower Peninsula, and lies 2 miles west from the village of Rhossili. Exposed to the full force of the Atlantic Ocean, this area is prone to high winds. This day was no exception although I couldn't complain about the blue skies, even if it were a little hazy...

This photo was taken from a part of the tidal causeway which allows walkers access to Worms Head for a few hours each day. The 56m high Outer Head can be seen on the left, with the Devil's Bridge visible on the right.

The rock in this area is carboniferous limestone and is subject to many types of erosion from the sea, the wind and the rain. Through this erosion, the rock has been eroded creating a karst topography throughout the area and is spectacular to both geologists, walkers and of course photographers.
