the smell of the ocean

25th May 2017, Embleton Bay, 8am

Very quiet on the beach but it was beautifully warm.  As we walked along the edge of the sea Daisy was keeping cool in the water so I ventured a toe in too.  The water was still freezing cold but very refreshing.

As we walked a cold wind suddenly wafted across the beach carrying the distinct salty tang of the ocean.  The cool air was refreshing and Daisy's panting breath was condensing in the cold like a winter's morning.


There's one figure on the beach if you look closely...

It's stayed sunny and warm all day but there's a blissful cool breeze.  It's now high tide and the sand is glowing beneath the turquoise water.  I remember my Mum loved to see this on the W. coast of Scotland - "just like the Caribbean" she would say though she'd never been there...

dramatic pose

24th May 2017, Dunstanburgh, 7:30am

It was really warm when we set off up the golf course.  Daisy was panting not smiling!



Suddenly, when we reached the top, the wind had picked up and the sun had gone behind a sheet of cloud.  Neither me nor Daisy like the heat so we were glad to cool off in the wind...

Daisy was so chilled she pulled a dramatic pose.

not warm yet

22nd May 2017, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

There's meant to be a heatwave this week as high pressure sets in.

It started well with bright sun but it was freezing cold in the wind again.

After a busy day of wedding photography and filming music today we can relax and spend a bit of time on the beach...

Wet day

19th May 2017, Boulmer, 9am

The weather wasn't looking too promising at the beach...

The sun and rain have brought out the wild flowers on the hay meadow.

shades of blue

All calm in the bay
Warm like a summer morning's
shades of brightest blue

reflections on water

17th May 2017, Embleton Bay, 8am

The light on the water was lovely. The reflections of the blue sky and clouds distorted by the water surface were quite beguiling.



Out to sea the coble is back fishing at the mouth of the river.



I took the zoomy camera out with me this morning as I haven't used it much since I got it. This is one of a pair of sedge warblers that were hopping about this morning and a camera-friendly stonechat (complete with a St Mark's fly in the bottom left corner!)
