Photography of Northumberland Woods & Forests!

Up until recently my genre has been mainly centered around Castle and coastal photography. I suppose because of where I live. Occasionally I might slip out of my comfort zone and venture into other fields like Nature and the odd landscape or two, but my camera always pulls me back to the sea. However, just lately my feet have started to wander to more peaceful and magical surroundings. That of the woods and forests of Northumberland. I hope you like what I have created.
