changing days

 21st September 2023, Warkworth, 9am

A beautiful bright and breezy day on the sun-kissed beach.

It's one day of woolly hats, one day of kagouls and one day of shorts and shades just now...

no wind to see

 20th September 2023, Bamburgh Castle

Changeable weather during the day at the castle and very windy.  The big skies never short of interest

what of the day

 18th September 23, Buston, 9am

Still some colour in the eastern sky

18th September 23, Warkworth, 5pm

Waves and ferns summed up my wander along the beach at high tide today.

two different days

 14th Sept. 23, Bamburgh, 5pm

A quick stroll up the beach after work under beautiful light.

17th Sept. 23, Simonside, 8am

Another misty wander up Simonside with the furry family.

up in time

 10th September 2023, Embleton Bay, 6am

It's been a while since I saw a sunrise from the beach. Up at 5:30 for a 6:29 sunrise and I found myself by the boats in Newton Haven as the sun came over the horizon. Right place, right time, a bit of luck, a bit of planning...

proper summer

 9th September 2023, Bamburgh, 2pm

A very hot day

Bamburgh was like a proper summer beach.


 8th September 2023, Buston, 8am

My path festooned 

With morning jewels of heavy dew 

By the time I reach the sand 

I’m as wet as if I’d waded 

Into the waves

The sea fret rolls in during warm weather and can spoil the summer sunshine for the casual sun-bather. The myriad of fine droplets can give their own beauty to the micro-landscapes for the photographer to find (even for spider-phobic photographers!)

8th September 2023, Bamburgh, 4pm

The sea fret swirls around the smiley lighthouse and stag rock.  Holy Island nowhere to be seen.
