rainbow and sunrays

3rd December 2016, Howick shore, 7:30am

Before dawn the pastel sky was very peaceful and quiet above the sea and the reflective beach.


Once the sun broke through it threw out dramatic rays of sunlight and at the same time a stubby rainbow hovered to the side of Dunstanburgh Castle away to the north,

December already...

1st December 2016, Embleton Bay, 8am

We wandered away up the little hill so the view of the sunrise was from a different angle but still the castle draws the eye...

The sunset hound



2nd December 2016, Dunstanburgh, 8am

Another stupidly early rise. I needed to be out to stretch my legs so on went Daisy's flashing collar and we headed off into the darkness of 6am. We reached the S side of the castle well before sunrise and sat and watched the world through our different eyes. The soft light on the sea, the lights of passing fishing boats and the gentle rolling waves were all I needed to keep me entertained while Daisy's eyes and ears darted about for more exciting sightings.

up and along

30th November 2016, Embelton Bay, 7:30am

We wandered up the dunes then along the beach all in peaceful solitude.

failed.

29th November 2016, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

A few different aspects of this morning's sunrise dog walk.

The highlight was the siting of a very rare bird which I failed to photograph!









29th November 2016, Fallodon woods, 11am

As I ran through the woods I had to stop to photograph this beautiful fern

Walkies

27th November 2016, Newton Point, 2pm

Playing 'dodge the cows'. The farmer seems to be having fun moving them every other day so you never know where they're hiding.

Once we were in a clear field and the sun came out things were much more relaxing.

two's company but 11's a crowd.

27th November 2016, 6:30am

I was up early to ease my aching old bones and we walked up the golf course in enchanting darkness with a crescent moon hanging above the castle.

A thick bank of cloud sat on the southern horizon blocking all thoughts of a dramatically colourful sunrise.

We headed back down to the beach passing no less than 11 photographers all heading for the same spot to photograph the "cannonball boulders".  It's a nice location and I've photographed from there before but the area offers much more peaceful locations, without the crowds, to those who know...

Me and Daisy wandered down the beach and I took a couple of shots of the early light on the sea and the sand pools on the beach before heading home for breakfast and ibuprofen.

every tide

25th November 2016, Embleton Bay, 7am

The same old view
But every tide brings different patterns to the sand
And every sunrise brings new light to a different sky.
