It's a blowin'

Uploaded by: Cowgazer

Wednesday November 20, 2013

Tudweiliog, United Kingdom

Caption: Right from the off this morning it has been blowing a gale, one small freighter has taken shelter on the Southern side of the peninsula. Luckily I was on the wild side and took my lunch with a good view of the waves, just love a good storm. 60MPH at this time.

Thanks for all the kind comments and thanks approvers for the AC. Major regret is the spotted lens, but to be honest the air was full of water traveling in every direction, impossible to get a shot off without the spots.

All food safely delivered to my mouth, though 1 cup of coffee went west. It was hard to open the door and once out of the van it was hard to stand up.

About Cowgazer

Cowgazer

I am Peter, brought up in the center of Manchester, UK. But was a square peg in a round hole there, worked 33 years as stockman in dairy farming then made redundant. Luckily got a job managing a garden nursery for a couple of years, but had to leave as tenancy came to an end. Couldn't find work so relocated to Wales and am now a self-employed gardener, great move, good things come out of hard times. Digital tech has made photography affordable to me and I love it, compliments my walking and Birdwatching. At present on a steep learning curve, new things are always good, stretch your mind and keep you sane-ish.
