It was a bit of a last minute decision to head to Burry Port harbour for sunset as the day started wet and grey. The forecast suggested clear skies at sunset, which I knew wouldn’t be great for a sunset shot. The tide was in which stopped me from getting the composition I really wanted, and taking the images involved me leaving the camera on the tripod, firing the shutter and then running inland to keep my feet dry. However, at one point I got distracted and a rogue wave caught me out.
Despite the wet feet and only coming away with one image that I was really happy with, I’m pleased I got out and took my first photographs of Burry Port.
One of the things I really like about the shot is the silhouette of a couple standing at the end of the seawall.
