Bridging the Gap

This image so very nearly made it into my Stephen King in Northumberland gallery; I saw this as being “The Barrens” from the novel IT; where the Loser’s Club play to keep out of the way of Henry Bowers and co. However, it didn’t make the final cut as I found a more suitable shot…… Continue reading Bridging the Gap

Playing in Charlie’s Garden

https://marcbatesphotography.smugmug.com/NorthEastLandscapes-fine-art/i-F2cBtLJ/A Charlie’s Garden Morning all. This image was taken at Collywell Bay in Seaton Sluice, Northumberland. It shows the sandstone sea-stack known locally as “Charlie’s Garden” which, at the time of shooting, was seperated from the coast by the tide. It’s a great place to shoot a sunrise or even a sunset (although the coast…… Continue reading Playing in Charlie’s Garden

Whirlpool Waterfall

https://marcbatesphotography.smugmug.com/NorthEastLandscapes/i-PwQJVVv/A Whirlpool Waterfall I took this shot along the trail to Hareshaw Linn; a spectacular waterfall near the village of West Woodburn, Bellingham, right in the heart of Northumberland. The whirlpool forming at the base of the falls really caught my eye and was just begging me to shoot it! This, and Hareshaw Linn are…… Continue reading Whirlpool Waterfall
