after a working week

18th February 2015, Low Newton, 5:30pm

Evening light on the beach houses.


19th February 2015, Embleton Bay, 5:30pm

Another evening  - shadowy blue sea and sky.


20th February 2015, Christon Bank, 6:15am

My regular morning dog-walk starts at 6:15 and I've enjoyed many moon and star-lit walks up these familiar paths near my village. As winter fades and spring comes quietly to the countryside, the days have been getting ever longer until this morning, as we came out the woods, we were met for the first time this year by the pre-dawn colours of the sky framed by the trees..

waiting for her walk...



20th February 2015, Howick Shore, 4:30pm

A tower of stones teetering at the rising tide.


21st February 2015, Beadnell Bay, 7:30am

An interesting pattern in the sand from the highest point the high tide reached overnight.


A weekend morning means time to spare for fun and games.

on reflection...

16th February 2015, Embleton Bay, 4:30pm

A very nice sunset and perfectly reflected in the Skaith's still waters.




As we walked onto the beach the reflections were almost as good on the sand as they were on the water...

made it!

10th February 2015, Embleton Bay, 4:30pm

Same weather as yesterday so I was in a hurry to get to the top of the Big Dune.  Last night I was too late but spotted the potential for a shot with the last of the evening light on the dune.

 On the first dune, with a view of the castle, it wasn't quite right so we pushed on to the next dune and found a spot.


One minute later and the light was gone as evening fell.

high pressure blues

9th February 2015, Embleton Bay, 4:30pm

The high pressure continues to sit over us but we're avoiding the fog that's sitting elsewhere. A beautiful evening of blue skies tinged with pastel pink.

weekend weather

8th February 2015, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

It's fashionable in landscape photography to use a very long shutter speed in order to render the movement of the sea into one blurry mass.  This can look great but it homogenises the variety of nature and you do miss out on the patterns produced by each and every wave.



The Embleton Burn curving around where it becomes known as The Skaith.


8th February 2015, Newton Point, 2pm

After a weekend of cracking sunny weather with the blue skies reaching from one horizon to the other and crystal clear air, Daisy was silhouetted against the westering sun.

sights unseen

7th February 2015, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

A beautiful sunrise with the out-of-place addition of the trails of this morning's Amsterdam bound flights.


The frost was thick on the beach houses. Their owners rarely see them like this.

Daisy had a sore eye yesterday but today it's wide open and looks fine. It didn't stop her hunting for mice...

steel grey

6th February 2015, Embleton Bay, 4pm

Daisy digs a hole while the sea and the sky reflect each other in an impasse of steel grey.
