calm and quiet

 3rd October 2022, Newton, 8am

Off at sunrise for a walk at the beach.

Very peaceful.

I do love the cool of an autumn day for a run around the fields...

Shades of autumn

As warm as summer

Just in time for the sun to come up behind a thin band of cloud.

Every sunrise is unique when you see the details.

orange snake

 27th September 2022, Bamburgh, 10am

I saw these school kids last week as their orange jackets snaked up the path for a day at Bamburgh castle. I missed the shot then but this morning they came back!

autumn arrives

 26th September 2022, Warkworth, 9am

All the showers stayed out over the sea but there was a definite autumn feel to the day.

26th September 2022, Alnmouth, 4pm

It was a very high tide.  

The yacht that has been stranded on the beach since the last spring tide was bobbing about on the waves but not going anywhere.

After a quick but heavy downpour I wandered up the beach watching the weather disappear off to the south.

Eventually I had to force my feet to leave the beach behind for the birds to gather and roost for the evening.

always worth it

 22nd September 2022, Alnmouth, 6:30am

Here in time for sunrise.  I sat in the back of the car and watched the sunrise.

I had everything I needed; a comfy seat, a fine view and a coffee. 

The sun rose and shone brightly then disappeared into the clouds. 

Then the sound of rain on the roof mingles with the rolling of the sea and the cries of the morning gulls.

After a few minutes the sun broke through again briefly but in shades of orange instead of pink.

I don't mind that it wasn't a spectacular display.  Every sunrise is worth watching.

Wave patterns shining in the morning light.
