Green Bridge of Wales
06/03/16The Green Bridge of Wales on Pembrokeshire's Castlemartin coast is described by the Natural Arch and Bridge Society as “probably the most spectacular arch in the United Kingdom, with a height of approximately 80 feet”. There is no beach here and the standard tourist view is from the cliff top to the west, where a viewing platform has helpfully been constructed to show visitors where to stand. I wanted to make a more dramatic, unusual image so I arrived just after sunrise and photographed from the east, looking down at an oblique angle. This enabled me to include bright lichen-covered rocks as a foreground, giving a base and sense of depth to the scene. A pair of gulls on the far end of the limestone arch show the scale of this magnificent natural feature. For more images of this coast see my Pembrokeshire Coast gallery.
