Northumberland

Just back from a beautiful week in Northumberland photographing some of the most beautiful coastline in the UK.

I visited the famous black stones that form the foreground of one of the most popular views of Dunstanburgh castle. The rocks are very difficult to navigate and deadly when wet. Because it's quite a way from anywhere, please take a phone or go with friends if you plan to visit!  

This is a view of the causeway to Lindisfarne at sunrise.

Once on Lindisfarne Island there are plenty of lovely boats to make nice foreground interest in your images. This one particularly caught my eye

One night, after sunset, I took a trip to Berwick upon Tweed as I wanted to capture this viaduct when it was lit up. I didn't feel particularly comfortable here on my own after dark, so made it quick. You drive through a housing estate to get to this viewpoint. I was wearing flipflops like a womble and had to get into the silt and mud of the river to get the angle as I wanted. I'm sure my feet were burning on the way home. Hope it wasn't chemicals! :)

Finally, no trip to Northumberland is complete without a shot of Bamburgh castle. Here you can see a new castle and the old castle in the same shot
