Monknash, Heritage Coastline


Monknash is the most glorious of locations. It’s set upon the Glamorgan Heritage Coastline sandwiched between Southerndown and Nash Point. It has high cliffs, amazing strata of eroded limestone, spring water streams, wonderful rock formations and if well timed with a glorious incoming but slightly tricky high tide it becomes one of the best locations for coastal photography in South Wales.
The best bit of advice I was given about the setting sun, was to have your back facing it. In this case, the advice proved absolutely spot on. The cliffs bathed in a golden sunlight, almost as if someone had painted large sections with gold leaf. This light lasted about 30 seconds, before a grey cloud bank came in and closed down the light for the evening, but there is always another day.
