The Tide Is In

I’ve been featuring the beautiful island of Lindisfarne for the last month now, and it seems only fitting that my last shot should be this one.

Once the tide is in, that’s it … the causeway is gone, and for roughly the next five hours the only way to get to and from Holy Island is by boat. All that’s left to show that there ever was a causeway are road signs like this one, poking out of the clear blue waters of the bay.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this series of photos; I think I got very lucky with the light on the day I took them. I can’t recommend the Northumberland coastline strongly enough as a place to go with your camera. It isn’t just beautiful, it’s also so quiet … that 120 mile stretch between Newcastle and Edinburgh is almost entirely rural, with only small villages and harbours for the most part.

I haven’t decided what next week’s theme will be … it’s currently a toss-up between last Saturday’s photoshoot in Ledbury, featuring some of the Manchester shots I took at Christmas, or making a start on my photos of Edinburgh. If you have a preference, do let me know!
