English review follows

 cyfrol bwrdd coffi Andy Davies a’i darluniau coeth â ni ar daith o gwmpas arfordir Cymru, o Bont Hafren i oleudy Talacre ym moryd Dyfrdwy. Gan ddefnyddio cyfuniad o’i ddelweddau ei hun a rhai gan ffotograffwyr eraill, gydag ysgrifau cryno’n cyflwyno pob pennod ranbarthol a chapsiynau gwybodaeth perthnasol i bob ffotograff, mae’r gyfrol hon yn cynnwys holl leoliadau adnabyddus arfordir Cymru (ynghyd â rhai llai adnabyddus). Yn amlach na pheidio, golygfeydd heulog a chipluniau twristaidd a ddangosir – hwylfyrddio ar Benrhyn Gŵyr; pobl ifanc yn neidio oddi ar glogwyni yn Sir Benfro; teuluoedd o ymwelwyr yn ymlacio ar y traeth yn Aberdyfi; castell Caernarfon wedi’i oleuo’n ddramatig yn y cyfnos.

Mae’n cyfuno golygfeydd ysblennydd a godidog â manylion bach o fywyd anifeiliaid a phlanhigion yn y môr o gwmpas Cymru, ac yn amlygu ymwybyddiaeth y daearegwr o strwythur ffisegol. Er enghraifft, mae haenau mawreddog creigiau’r cyfnod Jurasig yng nghlogwyni’r As Fach wedi’u portreadu’n arbennig o dda.

Ag yntau’n gyn-fyfyriwr Prifysgol Abertawe sydd bellach yn gweithio mewn cadwraeth natur forol yn Sir Benfro, efallai fod gogwydd dealladwy i’w weld yn yr ymdriniaeth o arfordiroedd de a de-orllewin Cymru. Teimlir bod y daith hamddenol o gwmpas yr arfordiroedd hyn yn dechrau carlamu unwaith i ni fynd heibio Penrhyn Llŷn gan anelu at Sir y Fflint, gydag arfordir gogledd Ynys Môn yn cael ei hepgor yn llwyr.

Gydag ychydig eithriadau’n unig, mae’r ffotograffau lliw yn y gyfrol hon yn odidog, gan ddal arfordir hir Cymru yn ei amrywiol ymgnawdoliadau. Gwelwn glogwyni creigiog am yn ail ag aberoedd tywodlyd; marinas dinesig prysur yn cyferbynnu â harbwrs mewn pentrefi cysglyd; caiff traethau twristaidd prysur eu cymharu â thwyni tywod gwag. Bron iawn y gallwch chi flasu’r heli a chlywed sgrech y gwylanod wrth droi’r tudalennau.

*************

Andy Davies’s lavishly illustrated coffee-table book takes us on a journey around the coast of Wales, from the Severn Bridge to the Talacre lighthouse on the Dee estuary. Using a combination of his own images and those of other photographers, with mini-essays introducing each regional chapter and informative brief captions to each of the photos, this book covers all the well-known (and some less so) locations on the Welsh coastline, more often than not showing us sunny views and touristy vistas – wind surfing on the Gower; teenagers coasteering off the cliffs in Pembrokeshire; families of day-trippers relaxing on the beach at Aberdyfi; Caernarfon castle dramatically illuminated at dusk . . .

He combines sweeping vistas and glorious views with small details of the animal and plant life in the sea around Wales, and brings the geologist's eye for the physical structure. The majestic layers of Jurassic rock in the cliffs of Nash Point, for example, are particularly well portrayed.

Being himself a former student at Swansea and now working in marine nature conservation in Pembrokeshire, there is perhaps an understandable bias in the coverage of the coastlines of south and south-west Wales. It feels as if the leisurely stroll around these coasts turns into more of a gallop once we round the tip of the Llŷn Peninsula and head for Flintshire, with the north coast of Anglesey omitted completely.

With only a few exceptions, the colour photographs in this book are glorious, capturing the long welsh coastline in its myriad incarnations. Rocky cliffs alternate with sandy estuaries; busy city marinas contrast with sleepy village harbours; crowded tourist beaches are matched by deserted sand dunes. You can almost taste the tang of the salt air and hear the screech of the gulls as you turn the pages.
