Photography of Northumberlands Coast!

Living where I do it is hard not to photograph the sea and coastline of Northumberland. Almost every day I walk along the sandy beaches with my dog, or explore the craggy outcrops of rock, coves and harbours that are the hidden gems of Northumbria. The coast is my playground and it changes with every tide, with no two days alike. I think that is what attracts me to it so much. Just to sit on a rock and stare out to sea, or watch the fishing boats come in and out of the harbour. Now isn't that better than walking the streets of the big cities and towns. I know which I prefer. I hope you enjoy the photographs that I have taken of this wonderful County ........ That I now call my home. .
