24/09/17 - Northumbria Castles

A trip North with my walking mate Andy Beavers who is also into his photography. The plan was to capture Dunstanburgh Castle at sunset, then head North, sleep in the van and capture a Bamburgh Castle sunrise the next morning. We would then continue up to Holy Island and try and capture images of the refuge between the mainland and the island. We had checked TPE for sunset times along with tide times which were in our favour.

We arrived at Dunstanburgh with plenty of time to spare but the skies were flat and my images were below average. What I did notice was that Andy's Canon seemed to pull more colour out of the scene than my Nikon. 

We then headed North grabbing some food at Seahouses before continuing on to Bamburgh Castle. By the time we arrived at Bamburgh the sea mist had crept in and the sky above the castle was lit up in different colours which we tried to capture with our cameras.

A night in the van and we woke to dull grey skies, we tried to grab a few images but they were pretty dull, we got back to the van when the heavens opened so we abandoned our journey to Holy Island but we will be back.
