More Photography of Northumberland's Countryside!

I came to live in Northumberland around four years ago to work, and although at the time, it was not an easy decision to make, I quickly fell in love with my new surroundings. It was certainly very different from some of the places I had lived in, London, Stockton-on-Tees, Chesterfield. And of course places like Germany etc when I was in the Royal Air Force. Northumberland is so much more peaceful and less populated and yep, I love it and now like to call Norhumberland my home. Here are a few more photographs of its landscapes. Hope you enjoy them.
