another sunrise

20th September 2019, Alnmouth, 7am

Just another beautiful sunrise...

...then Daisy posed nicely to make it more interesting

feels like autumn

19th September 2019, Longhorsley, 7am

Shadows of autumn
Walking under harvest sun
A new season comes

looking and seeing

18th September 2019, Alnmouth, 7am

I wandered up the beach but not much seemed to inspire this morning.

Eventually, as often happens, I got my eye in and started to see photographs here and there.

Back at the car I sat on a bench, looked at the sea and drank my cup of tea until it was time to head home...

sandy beds

17th September 2019, Warkworth, 7am

First walk of the day on Warkworth beach.

Later we’ll be on Bamburgh beach for a guided walk then Alnmouth to finish the day.

No wonder my bed is full of sand...

new friends

Waiting for the sun...

 These days some of my landscapes feature cocker spaniels instead of Daisy the lurcher.  This is Hattie posing nicely.

...and without a dog

Henry, Daisy and Hattie

13th September 2019, Alnmouth, 8am

It seems like the sun is only just up
And the day has only just begun
But already it’s time for one last look at the sea
Before we head home

Finding solitude

10th September 2019, Budle Bay, 8am

Alnmouth is a good beach for socialising, meeting and chatting.

For solitude Budle Bay is hard to beat.

beach running

9th September 2019,  Alnwick, 11am

I love Barter Books for people watching and general sitting around.

9th September 2019, Alnmouth, 4pm

Fun and games in the sun.

on the green

7th September 2019, Longhorsley, 8am

Hints of autumn are around us now.  This is good - I like autumn

Old Jangle doesn't get many photos as she doesn't do a lot at 13 years old.  So here are some nice photos of the dear old girl.

Long late summer shadows completing the portraits of all the doggy family

in the best place

6th September 2019, Embleton Bay, 8am

We had plenty of time to hang around as we got there before 8am and Daisy was joining me on today's guided walk at 10am

People come and go
Light changing on the sea
Passing time
In our favourite place

Sometimes you need to get rained on a bit so that you can be in the best place when the storm moves on.

not too early

4th September 2019, Alnmouth, 6:30am

Nice and early to beat the high tide but still too late for sunrise.

Fortunately sunrise was delayed as the sun stayed in her blanket of grey cloud until we arrived...

called to the sea

3rd September 2019, Alnmouth, 6:30am

My bedroom now has a distant view of the sea half a dozen miles away.

This morning's sunrise woke me with bright warm light cascading through my window.  It was just too tempting to leap out of bed and get to the beach pausing only to take a cup of tea along for the ride...

I got there just in time for some beautiful light before the sun disappeared into the clouds and the new day turned grey.
