A Strange sky in the Northeast

A lone tree in silhouette

I'm sure you all saw, or at least heard, about the strange sky over the Northeast of England yesterday (October 16th if you're reading this in the future...). To say it was ominous was a complete understatement! I actually missed most of it as I was in the studio doing post production and attempting to … Continue reading A Strange sky in the Northeast

In Paradise with Zorba

Yassou!! I greet you all after a week and a bit having been to the glorious island of Corfu with the wife to be and the kids. My skin is red and peeling, I have an emptier wallet than normal, but I've had an excellent time; sunning myself, playing in the pool with the kids, … Continue reading In Paradise with Zorba

A couple from Beadnell

Ebb's Nook Beadnell

Hello from sunny Northumberland! A couple of new images for you to spend your hard earned money on (my kids need MORE shoes apparently). First up...... The Edge of the Ocean https://marcbatesphotography.smugmug.com/Seascapes/i-vKL4vRs/A This was taken at the edge of "Ebbs Nook"; an outcrop on the coast of Beadnell in Northumberland. It struck me how, at first … Continue reading A couple from Beadnell

Playing in Charlie’s Garden

https://marcbatesphotography.smugmug.com/NorthEastLandscapes-fine-art/i-F2cBtLJ/A Charlie's Garden Morning all. This image was taken at Collywell Bay in Seaton Sluice, Northumberland.

It's a great place to shoot a sunrise or even a sunset (although the coast … Continue reading Playing in Charlie’s Garden

Afternoon at the Museum

An afternoon at the Great North Museum (formerly The Hancock Museum) in Newcastle upon Tyne turned interesting when this little guy turned up! https://marcbatesphotography.smugmug.com/Minimalism-fine-art-northeast/i-VZ7sQdQ/A The Snake I like Snakes. A lot. However the other half won't let me get one; I probably shouldn't have told her what I'd have to feed it! I'll have to stick with … Continue reading Afternoon at the Museum

Oh to be in Venice!

As I sit here in a rather chilly part of Northumberland where the clouds have zero contours and not a smidgen of colour, I find myself wishing I was somewhere else. Somewhere with weather! REAL weather! Huge crashing storms, or great big fluffy clouds with sun beams poking through with reckless abandon, rain, hail, snow! Anything! Just give … Continue reading Oh to be in Venice!
