The weekend before the "Beast from the East" threw the country into Mayhem, I hit the road in the early hours of Sunday morning to catch the sunrise before it rose above the Pembrokeshire coastline.
In a small car park, at the end of a live firing range, I rendezvoused with Rhiannon & Daniel. Two of the most genuine people I could ever wish to meet. They came armed with fresh coffee and hot porridge, essential fuel for a day out in the wilderness. These two are well versed in early mornings. Dan is an avid triathlete and Rhi is his main support for training. She is well known for being out (long before any of us would deem sane!) cycling alongside Dan as he runs, ensuring he keeps pace. These two revel in the outdoors and share an awe inspiring attitude of pushing the boundaries of what we believe possible... Be it, physically, mentally or in relationship goals!
After warming our bellies and having a good catch up, we left the safe haven of our cars and descended through the cliff face into the cove below.
The conditions weren't best to say the least... It was bitterly cold! The gale blowing in from the channel was making it very clear that we were not welcome. Despite our bravest efforts, we took refuge in a small chapel built into the cliff face.
After trying to fight the harshness for roughly an hour, we decided to move on down the coast. A brief car journey and a bit of walking led us to one of Rhi & Dan's favourite beaches.
Here we wandered, enjoyed the view and clambered about on rocks. I even managed to rip my well lived in jeans with a few over zealous lunges!
Below are my favourites from the day. These were shot primarily on my Fuji X100f so would be curious to hear your thoughts!
