photoblog image Northumbrian Nightfall

Northumbrian Nightfall

We stayed at a small place called Seahouses in Northumberland and the hotel was right above the beach.

This was a shot taken at 9.35 pm.looking North to the silhouette of Bamburgh Castle in the distance.

I am going to enter this into a competition at my camera club this Autumn, the subject being "Night", it's about as near as I can get I think.

Great result Brian,looks like a nice place to visit,did you manage a trip to Farne Island?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graham. It was a nice place to visit. Some of the party went to the Farne Islands but as a vertigo sufferer I didn't fancy the little boat.
We holidayed here and at Bamburgh when our children were young. I love this area. Super shot Brian, has me wanting to go back again
Brian Walbey: Glad to have brought back a nice memory Bill. Thanks for your comment. (More for the next couple of weeks by the way.)
I've been to this place and was quite fascinated by it. Love your photo, and good luck in the competition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Sheila.

It is a lovely part of the world - I used to live very close by. What lovely colours you have captured. Good luck in the competition.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Hopefully this has brough back a memory or two from when you used to live near here Ingrid. Thanks for your comment.
A pleasing sunset Brian, some good colours in there. I have only ever driven through Seahouses, it is one place I would really like to go back to.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les. Seahouses is small but pleasant, but dead at night, in other words nice and peaceful.
Superb Brian. What a perspective!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.

A fascinating evening/night sky- I love the colours and the reflection in the sea (low tide as I assume)- with the best wishes for your competition! What for a beautiful hotel you can recommend for sure?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. The hotel we stayed at was the Beach House Hotel, Seahouses. It was comfortable, the food was good but very slow being served.

'Nightfall' is a wonderful English word (we can only say in German: "Die Nacht fällt herein, there is not any noun)!
Brian Walbey: We both know what we mean though don't we. I have learnt some German today Philine.
You caught a delightful moment Brian.richard
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Excellent again Brian. Good luck in the competition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bernie.
You see this view, then you turn to a thatched roof cottage with an Orange glow coming from the windows and a log fire burning in the grate. Oh Bliss.
Brian Walbey: That sounds very tempting Martin, thanks for your comment.
superb Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tim.
