friends in high places

17th Feb 2019, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

This morning we were with friends up on top of the dunes.

 ...and down on the beach.

beach window

16th Feb 2019, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

A grey morning is reflected
In the sleeping windows
Of a hibernating beach bungalow.
This winter view
Is never seen by the owners
But soon enough
The huts will spring back into life
And the view from this window
Will be sunny and bright.

One of my regular fellow beach dog-walkers

This morning I was leading a walk for a really nice wee group of folk from The Natural History Society of Northumbria along Embleton Bay.

We had lots of weather - a warm sun with a chilly wind,
A bright sun in a blue sky with beautiful clouds.

There is no such thing as "just a cloudy day" in #Northumberland

A beautifully peaceful dog walk today.

I like to make these little ships when I can find the bits I need.

I left this one on the beach for someone to find.

where's the wind?

12th Feb 2019, Low Newton, 7:30am

A wonderful sunrise that made Daisy turn pink.

These peaceful photos don't show the icy wind that made the beach feel like the arctic.

moving on

11th Feb 2019, Embleton Bay, 7:40am

Same sunrise with 3 different watery foregrounds.

Although these three photographs were taken just a few yards apart I think it's vital to keep moving to find the inspirational photographs hidden just around the corner.


10th Feb 2019, Dunstanburgh, 8am

The sky was made of layers of water, cloud and bright sky

Daisy and Bess alternately wandered and chased.
