lichen light

19th October 2014, Newton Point, 4pm

Something about the late afternoon light filtering through the clouds made the yellow lichen look striking.


Daisy took the opportunity to chew on a bit of dried seaweed...

cold = quiet

11th October 2014, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

There was a real autumn chill to the morning but it was very beautiful and with the cold comes the quiet.

Daisy and the rising sun...

Some recent stormy weather has stirred up the sea and the waves were worth standing and watching

perfect stillness

4th October 2014, Beadnell Bay, 5:30pm

This morning was very wet but the band of rain passed over during the day and by 5pm only the last clouds were visible as they headed East. As we walked down the beach the last rays of the setting sun in the West lit up the clouds in the East above the perfect stillness of the beach.

Western Sun

2nd October 2014, Low Newton, 6:30am

Another pre-dawn walk and the light was beautiful. We were behind the boats at around 7am - just a few minutes before dawn now...


2nd October 2014, Newton Point, 5pm

A late afternoon walk with the sun pretty much West behind me...

reflecting on a warm September

30th September 2014, Beadnell Bay, 6pm

As September 2014 leaves us, we've not had much in the way of autumn coolness. A couple of days of 8 deg in the morning but this evening it's 20 degC + and the light is beautiful.

As we walked up we saw our little egret on the Long Nanny again.  They breed at Druridge Bay but they're spreading N and I'm sure the warm weather helps.  Yesterday I saw around 100 swallows on a phone wire - I fancied they looked very confused and argumentative as to whether it was time to leave or not.

same time, different beach

27th September 2014, Embleton Bay, 7am

Another beautiful sunrise so we went to a different beach - The Skaith on Embleton Bay is my favourite location...
