Monday morning, awoken by a horrific sound, the alarm clock going off at 4.30am. Drove to Bamburgh Castle for 6.20am. The sunrise was going to be 6.55am, but as you can see in the first photograph, there was this dark band of cloud which ruined it for me really, I could of done without that being there. Freezing cold and trying not to slip and break my neck on the very slippy rocks, I set my tripod up and waited for the sun to rise over the dark cloud. I was surprised I was the only photographer there, as it was a great morning. The tide was coming in very slowly and I could hear all the Turnstones and Redshanks calling from beyond the rocks behind me. These are the birds I was going to photograph later and they will be in my next post. But for now I hope you enjoy these six images I have chosen from that morning.
