High pressure comes to stay

2nd October 2015, Low Newton, 6am

There has been high pressure sitting over us for a week and we've had beautiful dawns every day.  Another couple of days of this 'Indian Summer' before the weather breaks...

The sea and the sky
Beautiful in pre-dawn light
In equal measure

Walking With Daisy

I made a wee film of our dog-walk yesterday...

The music is a mandolin piece of mine called "Lazy Long Dog"

don't mess

27th September 2015, Embleton Bay, 7am

Nature does a fine sunrise but I like mine with added Daisy.

These are all straight out of camera - you don't need to mess with light like this...

orange band

26th September 2015, Dunstanburgh, 7am

From the house the sky looked grey but with the sea as a horizon there was a narrow band of sunrise.

After the dawn faded we sat and watched the ocean.  The kittiwakes have all left the cliffs now and the sea was calm so their was a sense of great peace.

as I walked by moonlight

25th September 2015, Howick, 8pm

The moon was bright over a pastel pink sky and we played on the wide empty sand while the light faded.

As we walked home in the gathering dusk, I spotted these two photographers as they were snapping the moonlight on the water.
The image is a bit rough as it's a hand-held phone in the near dark but I think it shows the scene as I saw it quite well and that's what photography's all about.
