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

wildflower paths

20th June 2015, Low Newton 7am

A tour of some of the wild flowers at the back of Lew Newton beach

Bloody Cranesbill


Buttercups


White & Pink Campion





A multitude of grasses


Off the beach a solitary heron fishing.



20th June 2015, Newton Point, 6pm

I've had a composition in my mind for a while. These are the closest I've got to my idea so far...

a slow summer

9th June 2015, Low Newton 6am

Glassy calm at Low Newton this morning

Footprints

Intricate patterns
On the latest trainers
'Inspired by nature' they say
And so it will be
That wind and tide
Will wash away all trace
Of these trainers
And their owners
And soon the trainers
and their 'Nature inspired' patterns
Will be gone too
And the beach will go on
As before

 Multilayered clouds in grey and silver and the subtlest shade of blue

Lie in?

7th June 2015, Embleton Bay 6am

Up early means we get the beach to ourselves. Why would I want to lie in?





7th June 2015, Howick Bay 4pm

I like Howick Bay. The trees come down to the sea and I like that.

These are iPhone panoramas - great technology.





wind and light

2nd June 2015, Low Newton 6am

Unseasonably powerful wind this morning after a night of heavy rain. We hugged the dunes for shelter.

Dancing in the wind
The spinning grass draws circles
On rain textured sand






3rd June 2015, Cawledge 12 noon

These woods are just 5 mins walk from my work. A nice chance to breath in nature.






5th June 2015. Newton Point, 5pm



6th June 2015, Newton Point, 8pm

A rare chance to enjoy a late evening stroll. The light is opposite to our normal mornings...

Our Caribbean seas

31st May 2015, Newton Point 5pm

Daisy camouflaged in the sand, watches the world go by as we watch the Little Terns fluttering like butterflies on the breeze.


Nose to the wind


Our caribbean seas


Happy dog on the sand



The hay meadow on Newton Point up close.  I could have stayed where I lay.  Out of the wind and nicely warm in the sun.  problem was I was in the middle of the path!
