My theme this week is the tiny island of Lindisfarne, famous for being a place of holy retreat and for the mead and other drinks that it produces. Lindisfarne is connected to the mainland by a causeway that is only accessible when the tide goes out, and I made the area of the island around the causeway my focus for the day.
Next to the windmill that I featured yesterday stands what I’m guessing is the farmhouse that used to go with it. Even from this distance, you can see that it is clearly shuttered up, although it is impossible to tell whether that means it is boarded up and unoccupied or simply shuttered to protect from the awful weather we’d had earlier in the week!
But what really caught my eye was the lone photographer out in the flooded path between the car park (where I was standing) and the old farm. Seeing him there makes me think: what was it that he could see from there? Something to investigate during a future return trip in drier weather!
I hope you’ve enjoyed these photos this week. Come back tomorrow, when my Project 25×9 shot features both the windmill and this farmhouse side by side.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
