A STANCE FOR ALL SEA­SONS

Oliver Ed­wards, pho­tog­ra­pher My favourite shot is of a wild pony at sun­set over­look­ing Worm’s Head with a storm brew­ing in the back­ground (this is­sue, page 59). The Gower is close to my heart – my wife is from over the es­tu­ary in Pem­brey so I visit in all sea­sons. In win­ter, it’s very dra­matic, as you can see storms com­ing in for miles from the cen­tral ridge. The wild horses are small but tough an­i­mals, liv­ing through th­ese tough con­di­tions year round with lit­tle shel­ter. This im­age sums up many as­pects of how I see the area – beau­ti­ful coast with Worm’s Head in the back­ground, a storm ap­proach­ing, one or two houses sparsely pop­u­lat­ing the hill and a wild pony con­fi­dently look­ing straight to cam­era in its el­e­ment.
