My Sunday Photo: Lakeside View

On a recent day out to a national trust site, we turned a corner and came across this lovely pond (lake?) and did a double take – these birds aren’t real, but for a moment, we thought they were… Continue reading

My Sunday Photo: And They Say It’s Grim Up North…

I feel so lucky to live less than 20 minutes from the sea (one day I’ll get closer). The nearest to us is one of those seaside towns that isn’t, unfortunately, as glorious as it once was but it’s a lovely small town and the sand is lovely and clean so, for me, it can’t be beat…

My Sunday Photo: Castle Guards

So I’ve finally gotten round to swapping over all the photos from my old laptop to my new one (it’s only been four months!).  While I was I came across this one – though I have no idea where it came from.  I was obviously playing with taking a photo in black and white and filters on my photo app but I quite liked it.  Anyone got any idea where it was taken?

My Sunday Photo: Whitby on a cold but sunny-ish day

I don’t need it to be summer to go to the seaside. I love to go any time of year, rain or shine or when the clouds start to roll in. My favourite seaside town is Whitby and we go there a lot. This is my favourite view from up near St. Hilda’s church.

My Sunday Photo: Candlelight

I love this time of year. The dark nights, the Christmas lights, the cheesy music, and the candles that I seem to be constantly burning. It’s just so much nicer than anything else. I started messing around to try and get a decent shot of a candle’s flame. Then I gave up and just took this, a glowing candle on a dark night.

What about you – are you a candle burner?

Sunday post: I do like to be beside the seaside

We were lucky with the weather this week, though cold the sun shone most days.  Meaning I could take a walk along the local beach (well I say local, it’s a 15 minute drive so I think that counts).  There is nothing better to clear the mind I don’t think than looking out to sea.

My Sunday Photo: Ships Rigging

You wouldn’t necessarily believe it looking at the clouds in this photo but it was a glorious day when we visited the Hartlepool Maritime Experience and toured Britains oldest floating warship, HMS Trincomalee. Every time I’ve visited I’ve tried to get a decent shot of the rigging. It’s never quite been as good as I hoped but I don’t think this is a bad shot…
