Daisy's favourite spot to view the comings and goings on the golf course...



The meadowsweet in full bloom - I can't resist this shot (every year!)

Dogs old and new

This is what photography means to me:


We all breathe the same air but most hurry by.
If you let yourself be aware
Of where you are
And what you see around you,
And if you smell the grass and listen to the trees.
And if you taste the wind and feel the touch of the rain.
And if you let yourself acknowledge how this touches you inside.
Only then will you truly see the photograph
And you will know the art of photography

Guest whippet Zak - very muscly and newly rehomed by friends of ours. Lovely dog.

The Skaith - I've recently learned that the name refers to all the marshy area, not just the water.

There are people who come here and leave behind them a mermaid in the sand
These people are welcome back anytime

Rain on the wild flowers

Today's rain was soft and beautiful
Did you hear the gentle sound as it met the earth?
A million raindrop jewels
On grasses bowing their heads low
As if embarrassed to be so transformed
And to have beauty so bestowed
When they'd rather reach for the sun

Not interested in watching Murray get knocked out of Wimbledon so me and Daisy went to the beach.  Daisy's had a week of stitches after being bitten last weekend.  She's desperate to get off the lead - maybe tomorrow...

after the rain

21st June 2015, Dunstanburgh 7am

Last night's rain drops lie
Sparkling diamonds in the sun
Their brief chance to shine
Though Seldom noticed
An early bird's passing eye
Sees tiny wonders


the light sparkles on the sea too finding space between the retreating rain clouds
