deep breath

21st Feb 2017, Beadnell Bay, 7am

An early start as a day in the big city beckons.

The sunrise was my last deep breath before diving into the world of the city...

relaxed

19th Feb 2017, Embleton Bay, 7am

Not many folk about for sunrise this morning.  Why would you lie in bed when you could be here? - I don't get it.

It suits me to have the beach to ourselves though.  A very peaceful relaxed walk.

time to go?

17th Feb 2017, Beadnell Bay, 7am

The pre-dawn light was beautiful and we wandered up to the Long Nanny bridge.



Back down the beach, still before the sunrise.


Curlews - one of my favourite birds.  Soon they'll leave the coast for their inland moors to breed.  I first heard curlews when I was 3 years old in Leverburgh on Harris and their call is the soundtrack of so many memories from throughout my life.

too windy

16th Feb 2017, Dunstanburgh, 7:45am

Just after sunrise and there are beautiful clouds above the castle.

As we walk a stiff W wind picks up.  The car said 8 degC but it feels more like 2degC and even Daisy was pleased to get back to the shelter of the car and home for a 2nd breakfast.


16th Feb 2017, Newton Point, 4pm

Our walk is an hour later than it was in the winter so we still catch the sunset...

20 minutes

15th Feb 2017, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

The sunrise is back and it's about 20 minutes earlier than the last time I saw it.




15th Feb 2017, Football Hole, 10am

A lovely run through spring-like sunshine.  This time of year the summer birds start to sing but the winter birds are still hanging around.  As I ran north the fields on my left were ringing with skylarks and on the beach to my right a curlew's liquid call wafted over the breeze.

battered

12th February 2017, Newton Point, 8am

Very chilly with a few days of relentless easterly winds blasting grey clouds and sleet at the coast.

No golden light on the land this morning.


and it's a bit furious  for a furry friend.

dreich

11th Feb 17, Embleton Bay, 8am

Dreich we would call it in Scotland.

Wet, cold and windy and the seascape was naturally monochrome
