PhotoHunt: Water


Oh no! I'm late for this week's . Never mind, better late than never!

I'm certainly not stuck for images for this week's water theme. I'm surrounded by the stuff! I live on the coast, and there are rivers and ponds galore in the area. But I'll have to show pics that some of you have seen before - sorry. My laptop died a few weeks ago, and although I saved all my data, I haven't transferred it to my desktop - and I'm too lazy to hunt out my CDs.

The first shot was taken along the banks of the River Tawe (pronounced Ta-weh), close to sunset.


This next shot shows boats moored in the Marina. If you enlarge the pic, you can see the Moon has just risen.


I saw this swan nearby, on the river.


This man was enjoying a sunset jog along Swansea Bay.


Here's Swansea Bay on a hot, sunny afternoon.


This patch of pink thrift was growing above Caswell Bay, on the Gower Peninsula.


Finally, here's one of my favourite places in the whole world, Worm's Head, which sits in Rhossili Bay.


Hope you enjoyed my water pics. Have a lovely weekend!

Great shots! I had to smile at Swansea Bay as I live in Swansea (a suburb of Toronto) :)

Happy photo hunting!

Beautiful photos Siani. I love the thrift above Caswell.

Yup … and I’m even later than YOU, though I didn’t forget … I just didn’t have time until now even though I had the perfect photos to share for this week’s theme. Yours are gorgeous! I live on the West Coast ... far from Lake Ontario. Thanks for sharing ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Wonderful shots, so it's hard to pick out one. Perhaps the jogger on the beach? They are all beautiful.

Daisy said...

Oh my favorite is the pretty swan!

Sorry to hear about the demise of your laptop. I have survived two or three of them, and it's always a trauma.

Great shots you have here - as usual.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

You have beautiful pictures here. I love the picture of a man along the Swansea Bay.

I was late getting mine up too. I love all your choices for this weeks theme. The one with the pink thrift is very striking. I would love to have the backdrop that the jogger had, sigh. Mine's up too.

Have a great weekend,
Biker Betty :)

Those are magnificent shots. I love the photo of the beautiful ocean with glimpse of pink flowers on the side.

Thank you for visiting.

That's a fantastic photo of the bridge. You can really see the curve of it.
