Black & White Beach

Mewslade Bay
I rarely take black and white photos, but last weekend the weather was very warm and overcast, and I decided that an afternoon at the beach would look good in black and white. There is a certain nostalgia about black and white; I think it creates impact and gives a timeless and classic look to photos. We visited Mewslade Bay, a sandy beach with large rock formations and steep cliffs in the west of the Gower Peninsula.
The short walk down to the beach led us through a woodland path, then into a valley which is owned by the National Trust. After this, we navigated our way over some large rocks, before getting to the beach.

I wore my new white floral embroidered top from Tu Clothing at Sainsburys, which has a beautiful scallop hem and floral embroidery running over the lightweight material; perfect for a day at the beach. The weather was quite windy, which is why I'm holding my hair!

We spent the afternoon exploring the beach, jumping over pools of water and racing against the rising tide. We discovered the perfect spot in one of the coves, and decided to come back again with a picnic. I love a good picnic, so I'm definitely up for this! 

Do you like to visit the beach? Angharad x


  1. We do have a beach about a 40 minute drive from us but as soon as the sun comes out it's a queue pretty much from our road to the coast so we don't go as often as we'd like to! I adore these photos, the black and white looks so good!

    1. Thank you, Laura! I agree, sometimes it can be a bit of a mission to plan a trip to the beach, particularly when the weather is good! Have a great week :) Angharad x

  2. These photos are beautiful, I love how black and white looks especially while on the beach, it gives such a unique perspective! Your photography is lovely and makes me want to travel to the beach so badly, it's one of my favourite places to unwind!

    1. Hi Diana! Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. Angharad x

  3. Very nice photos. I'm using this tool https://macphun.com/tonality to make my pictures black and white. Which app did you use? Or, maybe, you've done your photos black and white right in camera?

  4. Hi Mark! I used my camera to change the photos to a black and white effect :) Thank you for reading!
