lived at this beautiful coastline for 15 years at Southerndown and
Ogmore by Sea, David Anthony Batten has captured hundreds of photographs
of this little known stretch of coastline, primarily in the last
9 years. This has been made more possible since the advent of Digital
Photography. These photographs have become a great asset as a record
of the scenic beauty, as well as the incoming Atlantic storms that
stampede up the Bristol Channel and pound into our shores. These
photographs can be enjoyed on the Local scenic Photography website
You can also find a few poems about this coastline on the same website
once again, inspired by his Love for the scenic places to be found
on the Glamorgan Heritage Coastline. - Scroll down for more.
as a Photographer.
a Lover of this coastline of ours, I have enjoyed fully, the outdoor
experiences on offer here. I Love the wildlife and the Wildfowl
in the estuary, all the natural views, the beauty of the forever
changing colours of this coastline . Blue, Green, Jade or Grey,
depending on the kind of day. That's what our Sea means to me. I
Love the waves, I Love the surf and I Love surfing with good friends,
real friends, those that appreciate the shear honesty of nature
and the oceans display of light and movement created by tides, weather
and seasons and the suns melt. It has inspired me so much. It inspires
my photography, it inspires me to write Poetry, it inspired me to
invent .....it inspired me to creat a local Surf Brand named after
Tusker Rock, www.tuskasurf.co.uk
where you can buy local surf photos of this coastline on Tee shirts
am inspired by the wind, the Ballet of Flowers in the wind in the

dance. Again the Camera clicked -
