Lindisfarne Castle at sunset

I’m back from a trip to Northumbria, and I’m exhausted.

It was quite a lazy trip with very relaxed hikes and not too many pre-sunrise starts, but I have a cold and was carrying a very heavy camera bag and this seems to have hit me. I ache.

I’m looking forward to processing some of my images though, and am starting off with this quick edit from Lindisfarne Castle where we went on our first night. We were very lucky that the road leading up to Holy Island was just coming in to the ‘passable’ phase of the high/low tide cycle and we were able to get across it 45 minutes before the stated ‘safe’ times in order to watch a lovely sunset take place.

The night before there had been lovely Northen lights visible, alas it was not to be on this trip.

We stuck around for blue hour checking out a few different angles of the castle before heading back to the car and moving on to the poorly lit and therefore disappointing Bamburgh Castle which we walked around, attempted a few shots, grumbled a bit and then went off for food.

It’s good to be home.
