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

Beadnell revisited

A lone tree in silhouette

If you read my last post - Is there life on Mars? you'll note that I'd spent my birthday in Beadnell, Northumberland. While telling you about my Mars-like landscape shot of Ebb's Nook (see here) I completely forgot to include a shot I took of Beadnell Point. Beadnell Point I tried out a few new … Continue reading Beadnell revisited

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 shows the sandstone sea-stack known locally as "Charlie's Garden" which, at the time of shooting, was seperated from the coast by the tide. 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

Whirlpool Waterfall

https://marcbatesphotography.smugmug.com/NorthEastLandscapes/i-PwQJVVv/A Whirlpool Waterfall I took this shot along the trail to Hareshaw Linn; a spectacular waterfall near the village of West Woodburn, Bellingham, right in the heart of Northumberland. The whirlpool forming at the base of the falls really caught my eye and was just begging me to shoot it! This, and Hareshaw Linn are … Continue reading Whirlpool Waterfall
