Jaws of Hell

Uploaded by: Cowgazer

Sunday August 11, 2013

Llanengan, United Kingdom

Caption: Now the weather front has cleared through this place looks like heaven. Its name has a more sinister ring, Hells Mouth earned its title in the age of sail, its 3.25 mile gape faces the prevailing wind and laden ships would become trapped between the headlands. Unable to tack out, they dropped anchor only to find soft sands, once marooned on the beach they were doomed.

Harsh name for such a beautifulplace, but makes
sense once I read your information. So are there
all kinds of shipwrecks uner the water here and
do interesting bits and pieces of history wash
ashore frome time to time? Pretty shot, Peter!

About 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.
