shy sunrise

17th Jan 2020, Embleton Bay, 8am

I stood here for a while
But sunrise stood me up.

Geared up and lined up
All along the coast
Disappointed photographers
Are robbed of their moment of glory.

They shrug their shoulders and trudge home
There’s always tomorrow...

A quick walk with Daisy before today's guided walk with HPB guests.

Daisy stood and looked at the sand for a moment then took off for some exuberant zoomies (briefly)

heart in the sand

13th Jan 2020, Hauxley

A heart in the sand
A kiss buried here many years ago 
Has returned to the light of day
In perfect time to bestow its love
Onto a beach walker
Whose boots happened to pass by this way

time for the sun

10th Jan 2020, Alnmouth, 8am

After a very icy drive over to Alnmouth we got there with half an hour until sunrise and a beautiful light across the sky

We wandered up and down the beach watching the colours changing until it was time for the sun.

slow start

8th Jan 2020, Alnmouth, 8am

It was all a bit grey at first.  A blanket of cloud concealed the sun until half an hour after sunrise.

too much colour

7th December 2020, Howick, 8am

There was nothing much to see out the bedroom window but by the time we got close to the coast amazingly vibrant colours were spreading across the sky.

 As soon as it arrived the sunrise faded and we walked back via the woods looking for black and white subjects - perhaps my eyes had seen enough colour for one day!
