absorbing

8th December 2016, Newton Point, 3pm

It gets dark early at this time of year but tonight's sunset was beautiful and led to a calm dusk on the beach.  A few people (like me) stood about absorbing the atmosphere..

fingerprints

7th December 2016, 7:30am, Howick

In the grey light before sunrise we walked along beneath the winter trees. This series of photographs examines the 'fingerprints' of each and every unique tree that are hidden by their summer leaves. Our walk ended at Howick Bay with our first sight of colour in the sky...

rainbow and sunrays

3rd December 2016, Howick shore, 7:30am

Before dawn the pastel sky was very peaceful and quiet above the sea and the reflective beach.


Once the sun broke through it threw out dramatic rays of sunlight and at the same time a stubby rainbow hovered to the side of Dunstanburgh Castle away to the north,

The sunset hound



2nd December 2016, Dunstanburgh, 8am

Another stupidly early rise. I needed to be out to stretch my legs so on went Daisy's flashing collar and we headed off into the darkness of 6am.

The soft light on the sea, the lights of passing fishing boats and the gentle rolling waves were all I needed to keep me entertained while Daisy's eyes and ears darted about for more exciting sightings.

failed.

29th November 2016, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

A few different aspects of this morning's sunrise dog walk.

The highlight was the siting of a very rare bird which I failed to photograph!









29th November 2016, Fallodon woods, 11am

As I ran through the woods I had to stop to photograph this beautiful fern
