Northern Seaside Inspiration

A selection of pics from my summer holiday in Northumberland.

I love….

The randomness of spacing in little barnacles,

Springy matt clusters of moss on slippery rock surfaces,

Barnacle-moss Barnacles-2015

Bright fishing gear against the dark North Sea,

Lobster-pots pink-Buoys

Enticing rock pools in clear crisp light,

Rock-pools

Seals whiskers at the Farne Islands!

Seals-2015

The strength of a silhouette against  a raging sky,

Sunset-

 Elements making their mark on rock surfaces.

Wave Rocks

Northumberland Rocks

Exploring the rocky shoreline below Dunstanburgh Castle near Embleton Beach Northumberland.

The Light here is magnificently bright in the Summer months and brings out the clarity , colour and texture in these beautiful rocks

I could sketch and paint here for the rest of my life.
