 22nd June 22, Alnmouth, 8pm

After a dull cloudy solstice, today was much nicer.

I'll call this "taking the boat for a walk"

I was too early for sunset but it was beautiful and the fierceness of the day's sun had receded to a gentle light.

Colours showing nicely on this wee swallow.

nearly solstice

Nearly solstice sunset walkies

do not touch

 17th June, Howick, 9am

There was a heatwave widely predicted for today but in Northumberland it was cool and grey (which meant I could have a lovely long run).

I love the wild flowers on the managed areas of the coast but it’s nice to find orchids inland in a farmer’s grassy field. 

Curlews are nesting hereabouts too and yellowhammers are singing from the hedges. 

Sometimes all nature needs is to be left alone.

they seek him here and there...

Today’s guided walk clients were quite into their wild flowers and birds and the meadows, dunes, ponds and coast didn’t let us down. 

 This is Burnet Rose which has a cute scientific name - Rosa pimpinellifolia 

A tiny but formidably spiky wee guy, this one had a nice splash of pink across its petals.

Three blue sky days

A beautiful day up in the castle to photograph a wedding

Definitely worth the effort just for the colour of the sea.

I was glad of the breeze til I turned round and was sand-blasted. Not complaining though...

double visiting

 9th June 2022, Newton Point, 10am

We walked through the wild flowers on today's guided walk and it was so nice I came back and sat and had my lunch.

green belt?

 2nd June 2022, Denwick, 9am

A nice place to run (once you navigate the building sites of the many new houses in Alnwick)

Any earlier and it would have been grey and rainy...

showery southbound

A few showers around but all south of where I was.  Much nicer sunny weather to the north.

Bright and beautiful up the beach and Early Purple Orchids in profusion as I headed back via the dunes

Down among the wildflowers.

An infinity of perspectives

the sea by my side

 12th May 2022, Newton Point, 7am

A couple of hours after sunrise so no colour but always nice to take a deep breath with the sea at my side.

Lots to photograph.
